Even with all the chaos and commotion, Callie has been working on new skills. she is now able to climb up on the couch (by climbing on a step stool first), and really enjoys climbing up on the couch to read books! She is also working on standing balance. So far, she is able to stand for about 5 seconds by herself at a time. (This may not sound like a big deal, as an average 9-12 month old should be able to do this, but for Callie, it's huge!) Callie is so proud of her accomplishments!
Potty training has also come to a very sharp halt - I just can't add that to everything else right now, lol! Callie still WANTS to go, so when she repeatedly asked yesterday, I took her...to my surprise, she went right away. She is so excited when she goes! She finished, and said "I need wipe." Once that was done, she said "I Flush, I do it." after that, she said "wash." and then, after she was clothed and clean, she said, "Candy!" (we were giving her 2 M&M's for going potty...but we ran out, and I didn't bother to get more since we are moving - it would just be something else to pack and move, lol! I was able to find her 2 chocolate chips for her efforts, which she seemed equally pleased with!)
We are so blessed by this precious little girl!
