I know I keep promising updates, etc. but I'm so tired! So here is a quick one:

Each week, we have 2 speech therapy visits, 2 occupational therapy visits, 1 physical therapy visit (I wish this one was two also), and 1 cognitive therapy visit. To my house. Thank you, Lord, for early intervention programs! And thank you for traveling therapists!

This week I thought it was my imagination that she was cooing... but no! She's made cooing noises 3 times today! First it was no vocalizations, then tiny mews or baby cat meow sounds on occasion, then grunting and finally - this week - a coo!!

It's amazing what complexities I took for granted with my first daughter. I'm intimately involved with the tiniest developmental steps right now.

YAY!! Ohhh I cannot wait to cuddle that beautiful bundle. I am so excited for you- her first coos- that is awesome! Thanks for the update.

How sweet! I love baby coos! I wish we could hear her do it in person.

Thank you, Chinese Spammer. Now I know how much you care. Don't be sad that Google doesn't love you anymore.

Anyone know how to delete comments, let me know! :)

Hi Laurie,

You don't know me but I'm a friend of Mandy's and have been thinking of you often since she shared with with me about your sweet girl. My daughter has been through a lot of medical challenges (g-tube, surgeries, severe gross motor delays) in her 6 years and I am very thankful for early intervention! I fully credit them for getting Kira to where she is today...each day brings it's own challenges but when I look at where she was even 6 months ago, it amazes me!

You are doing an amazing job and it takes awhile but you will adjust to your new "normal!" Your little girl is going to teach so many people some wonderful things!!!
