Life as a mom is amazing and somehow the days just fly by. I suddenly realized that it's been over 2 weeks since I posted and I'm sure everyone thinks Isa and I have dropped off the face of the Earth. :) Nope- we've just dropped in the Mommy Zone (which is similar to the Twilight Zone when you remove the diapers and bottles).
Isa continues to be an amazing little one. She's active, vocal (VERY vocal), and happy, happy, happy. The only time she cries is when she's hungry and even then the crying is rather pathetic. She's louder when she's "talking" than when she's crying! Here is a typical Isa moment:
We continue to work on her developmental milestones- she's really not too far behind. Last week I sat her up and she stayed! I frantically ran into the livingroom for the camera and when I got back, she was still upright. (I have since learned to always travel with the camera, even within my own house.....)
We do tummy time every day and Isa pushes up really well. She gets incredibly annoyed at being on her tummy but despite my help with practice rolls, had yet to figure out how to get herself over all on her own. Today, however, she figured it out!
We go to the doctor's next week, so I'll be able to give everyone the official height/weight stats. I was waiting for an insurance issue to clear up in order to be able to make an appointment with the UWMC Adoption Peds Clinic and happily, everything is in place now. So far Isa B is healthy as can be- her little cough seems to be primarily from all the drool from teething. I can't wait until her little teeth come in and no longer soaks her clothes with drool!
Now, if I could just get her to sleep through the night........
