What a difference....a day makes.....

24 little hours.
And every day - Milana is doing better and better.
Three weeks ago she was barely walking. And ok - her walk does resemble that of a drunken sailor.....but she's walking. And loving it !
As are we.

Squealing with delight!

Oh my.....has she been watching Dahlia's pose?

Oh, I give up....just get me that spoon already!

Umm, this is for TongguMama, this sippy cup has a slower pull than a bottle with a tiny opening. I can barely get anything through it but she can. Good sign, right?

The sun is shining fully on this sweet little face now. And each day she is making huge strides.
She eats so much better - some solid food now. Anything solid would just roll out of her mouth like she didn't know what to do with it. Only ate baby food but that is changing.
And have I mentioned what a good sleeper she is?
Please don't throw tomatoes but she sleeps like a dream. I struck gold with Dahlia but it's pure platinum with Milana. Three weeks ago she could barely hold her head up. And just look at her!

But the best thing about this sweet kid..........
....she's happy!

And you know what that makes me.

I am sure you are over the moon! What a change! I know you trusted that you would see this time, but it's so incredible to see it so quickly. She looks beyond adorable and VERY happy!

How marvelous!

Caroline started crawling at 14 months and walked 2 weeks later. Oh yeah, they catch up quickly!

Love, love, love her outfit! SO cute! Black and white checks is one of my favorite prints on children. I have a dress and matching coat and hat for Caroline's that is like that and I LOVE it.
