Love this girl...we could eat her up! And, she knows it and plays us like a fiddle--which pleases me to peaches because it seems so normal.:) Here are her latest poses....

Lilah in her 'stander' (to help her learn to bear weight on her legs) and her cousin Owen (who has apparently seen more exciting toys in his life) She has special leg braces and shoes that she wears to give her legs and ankles support and she 'wears out' in about 10 minutes right now.

L and cousin Maggie enjoying some 'encouraged' snuggles

happy halloween! L is going to be too big for that shirt by halloween! she has gained 2 lbs in 2 months!!!
look at her sitting!!!!!! she is supported here, but she sat unsupported for 40 seconds today!!!!! I think we are a long way from 'safe sitting' (i.e. won't fall over and hurt herself), but on the right path for sure. Watching her struggle so much to reach, get-to, and manipulate toys makes me sad for her that it's so hard, but it certainly reminds me not to take anything for granted. Seeing her breathing hard after turning pages of a book or a successful roll-over keeps me from complaining about much (or at least less). Sweet , precious us so much encouragement....always thought it would be me encouraging her!

I totally agree with being encouraged by your baby. I've learned so many things from my little guy. Its amazing the things that they can teach us!
