I'm so excited and happy! I just watched (and photographed) Kylie picking up a toy and bringing it to her mouth! This was the first time she's done this and it was fantastic!

Here's a play by play:
Sheer determination

It's lifted!

It's heading towards the mouth and the mouth is open.


I was sitting on the floor, holding my breath, snapping the camera away. After Kylie tasted her rattle, she gave me this look like, "Did you just see what I did!!" I smiled and praised her and said, "Yes! You did it, my darling! Well done!"

She's one day shy of 12 weeks and is lifting toys! She lifted it several times and was so pleased. I was so happy and proud of her--stupidly giddy over it all.

After about 30 minutes of play, she passed out asleep in my sling. I've still got the silly grin plastered on my face.

I'm so behind on comments. I read all the time then go on with life. Karen congratulations on the adoption of Kylie. That is so special and it makes me so happy!
chris would be so jealous of your iphone purchase. we watched the keynote address on apple a few times. he says it's the only thing on his christmas list.
Your chair looks comfy.
I also want to thank you for your comments on M&J's blog. I can always count on you for a pat on the back.
What kind of camera do you use? it takes fabulous photos

What a great photo series for the baby book! I don't think a single one of my kids was picking up things at 12 weeks. Go Kylie, go!
