It finally happened yesterday. Our dear girl started to move about a bit. It happened much sooner with Anna Mei, but finally our Molly Kate is feeling comfortable enough to explore. She literally has stayed pretty much glued to wherever I put her down in our hotel and won't leave my lap or walk when we are out. She sits quietly and plays with anything that is near, but hasn't moved or made any fuss to gain more. I have tried to get her to explore, walk holding my hand, and crawl, but she has had none of that. Yesterday, though, she did walk from her toys to the table and "got into" some things that were sitting there. I am thrilled. She even walked on her own just a bit at the park we visited today while she held my hand. She is very, very cautious and it has taken her a very long time to come out of herself, but we are so excited to begin seeing a bit of her little personality. She even thought about feeding herself some ice cream, but quickly came to her senses and withdraw so that momma could do it for her. How I love watching my littles become more themselves as they get comfortable. I can't wait to see how she will settle in at home with our family. She is so happy to see her daddy each time on the computer and we will all be pretty happy to see him in person on Friday!
