The other day we checked on Allie while she was sleeping and she looked so cute among all of her toys. She clearly had moved to be closer to them and thus more cozy with them.
Here are a couple videos just to show you how Allie is doing these days. You will see she uses her exercise equipment in fun ways. I do think she is getting exercise from it, maybe not what was intended, though. She also has started doing her signs along with the videos. It is very cute. She can either read the word they are about to show or she knows the videos well enough to know what is next. I think it is a little of both. You will see in the first video, she starts to sign clothes before they even say it. In this case, they were asking her to sign Pajamas, which is the sign for sleep (hand sweeps over face vertically) and clothes, which is you brush your hands on your clothes. She does the clothes wonderfully.
Okay... just wanted to put some stuff out here for you so you can be close to our little girl even though you are so far away!
Hugs and kisses!
