I've had an enjoyable week with Saedi all to myself. From birth she's been a sweet baby with gentle spirit & an easy personality to connect with. Having this quality time to connect with her one-on-one was a special blessing. She's becoming very verbal. Her latest works are: snack-snack, juice, no-no, peeease, yeah-yeah, shoe-shoes, dance (no one else would recognize this is what she's saying)& she's fiddling with the concept of "mine." Some of my favorite moments with Saedi this week were hiking together at Dunbar Cave, going on a long run together (she sat content for an entire 1 1/2 hrs), watching her say hi to people at the playground, having her reach up to hold my mind because she wants to walk everywhere, & her singing with me before bed. She's been walking around the house this week saying "Ay-eee" (Ellie) so she's going to be thrilled to re-unite with Big Sis tomorrow. I'm ready to see my Big Girl as well.
