Outdoing each other...

Sophie spontaneously did a new sign today. I showed her the sign for "help" a few times but never pushed it. Today, during therapy, her therapist asked Sophie if she needed help and she signed "help" without being prompted. We were both surprised and thrilled. Not to be outdone by Sophie, Elsa decided to almost roll over today. She is also able to hold her held up real high for about 15 seconds. I will take this competition any day!!!

Time flies...

I am trying so hard to keep up with this blog. I just realized it has been 2 weeks since I last posted!!! 2 weeks...really?!? I seriously thought it was just last week. All my girls are doing incredible.

Haley...Haley won double platinum in her dance competition last weekend. Way to go Haley!!!

Elsa...Elsa is growing so fast. She loves cooing and is already able to hold her head up for 3 seconds while on her belly. She is also taking the bottle again - woohoo!!!

Sophie...Sophie's development continues to amaze us all. She will repeat upon command the following sounds - la la la, mew, ho ho ho, mmm, doi doi doi, aah, and ba. That is 7 different sounds!!! She makes more sounds than that but these are the ones she will repeat upon command. She is climbing up on things like crazy. She climbs up on the tall stools at the kitchen counter and then onto the counter. Just today, Brandon found her standing on top of her changing table and throwing things off our dresser. She gets into EVERYTHING. She is like a tornado when she enters a room. She loves to scatter her books and toys everywhere. I also find the oddest things in the oddest places. Just when I cannot imagine loving her anymore than I possibly can she finds a way to melt my heart all over again. She gives the most amazing hugs. She will wrap her little arms so tightly around my neck. It's the greatest feeling in the world.
