Proud to Announce...

... that Olivia is up on all fours in PERFECT form! This week, Olivia figured out how to take her "froggy rocky rocky" position and turn it into "rocky rocky way up high"! I had feared that it was going to take her a long time to get the strength and motivation to get her knees under her and her hips in, but she made the next step quickly. She LOVES rocking way up high! Big Smiles! And we LOVE seeing her do this! It is hard to believe that this little girl who we used to get excited so excited for when she, as a baby, moved her head from side to side, is now up on all fours rocking beautifully! It is moments like this that make us stand in AWE of the honor it is to be the parents of a child with that little extra chromosome. The work to attain each milestone is HARD work indeed, and takes a lot of patience, but when we get to these extra special milestones the rejoicing is fantastic! It is harder to raise a child with special needs, but I think it is better! Anyway... we love Olivia so dearly! And we are so very proud of her! Always! (Anyway... she has good genes! We can say that since we were fortunate to adopt her!)
