A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove...but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child. --Forest E. Witcraft

Precious Update

Precious has developed many new skills in the last couple of weeks.  She can pull herself up to a standing position, especially next to the couch.  She also immediately learned to walk a few steps along the couch.  This all happened virtually right after learning to crawl.  She is definitely mobile!

It looks like Precious is also going to have a rather independent personality.  She knows what she wants and when she wants it.  If she wants up, wants food, or doesn't like her diaper, we definitely hear about it!  She is also starting to rebel about going into the carseat!

Precious is a great eater.  She really likes her finger foods.  She also chows on the stage 2 baby food.  I'm thinking stage 3 really soon!  She still likes her bottles, but milk is second to actual food. 

BB and Precious are interacting a lot more.  He can be so sweet and loving.  But, unfortunately, he can turn on a dime and start hitting, pinching, or being rough with her.  They definitely have a bond.  Precious responds well to all of us.  Her smile is adorable and her giggle infectious!

On the adoption front, there is still no good news about my adoption certification.  It's been over seven weeks since it was submitted.  Found out last Friday it was just passed to a new judge for approval?!  I'm really hoping he reads it and signs it soon!  I am so hoping to finalize this year.
