We Finally Meet and Rachel SITS!

The play group that I have formed for "special needs" babies finally got together today. Four out of the six of us (so far) met here, at our house, for some relaxed play time. We had two boys and two girls and I think everyone had a nice time. I really enjoyed just hanging out and talking. Cute kids are a bonus!
Kristin and Carter
Korey and Jack
Victoria and Tierney
Rachel also decided that the meet up would be the perfect place to debut her sitting skills. Again, I think she practices this stuff while we are sleeping. This past Thursday she would barely sit for a couple seconds before toppling over and then today, ta-da, she's sitting up to 10 minutes by herself while eating Gerber puffs off the blanket or playing with a toy. Truly amazing. Now we need to work on teaching her how to get to sitting position and from sitting to stomach position. We actually have some new goals that our PT can help us with!
