Since coming home two months ago she has....
gained FOUR pounds
has better color in her skin and her hair has grown a lot!
can get herself into a sitting position
learned to crawl
pull to standing and cruise furniture
dance her tiny tush off!
walk behind her push toy or while holding our hand
can say 'mama, papa, dada, brata, kitty, up, nyet, da, ums, all done, baba, nigh nigh, hi and bye!
And has completely stolen our hearts. She's such a comical little thing. She squeals when someone touches her things or is sitting with mom or dad and she thinks she should have us all to herself. She came with the 'insta-pissed' feature... zero to completely screaming ticked off in under a second! She's figuring things out very quickly and understands English very well.
I had hoped to be better at updating the blog and putting up pictures but in my two free minutes a day I use the bathroom or have a drink (not that kind of drink though some days I'd prefer it!)
The kids are doing well overall. Everyone is healthy and having a good year in school. Alina finished 5 weeks of serial casting to stretch her feet and now has new AFO's. We don't love them yet, and we need to have a few more adjustments made to them next week, but overall I think they will work out for her once we get all the kinks worked out. Plus she got new Lego shoes and she's pretty proud of them. :) We go for another MRI this week and then they will be discussing the SDR surgery more and hopefully getting it scheduled.
And some obligatory pictures of the last month.
