I've been meaning to write a Mae update for a while now, since she's barreling past milestones just about every day. I actually caught my favorite moment of the week on my camera when I glanced over and saw that she was stacking blocks. I don't think I've ever seen her stack blocks in her entire life. I've seen her destroy plenty of cities that her sister has built, so I was shocked when I glanced over and say this (and see if you can catch Patrick say "Aggie!" as he hands her a block at the beginning of the video):
Here are a few of my other favorite moments from the past week:
At the start of the week Mae was playing in the bath pretending to be a mermaid. She was giggling and keeping her feet together and laughing when I would say they were her little fins and pretending to swim around the tub. A few minutes later she looked at me and, in a clear little voice said: "Ribbit! Ribbit!" "You're a frog now?" I asked her. She looked at me with a glimmer in her eye and said: "Hop! Hop! Hop!"
|Mae's unicorn is so special I had to use the|
"magic" mode on my camera to add a little
bit of sparkle to this shot...
She's also been giving me high fives and saying "Pat!" when she does it. The word "Pat" is usually followed with a giggle and a glance at her brother, so it seems like she knows that the word sounds like his name.
She's also excited for therapy to begin each morning and I find myself shocked every time I glance into the room and see her sitting in her little chair doing activities! I can hardly believe it's only been a month since therapy began!
