Updates on Victoria Lily Joy van den Broek, born 120705.

Saturday, February 10, 2007

the snow was very pretty - one of the boys brought a bowl full of snow in for Victoria to look at - she wasn't impressed with the temperature of the stuff and couldn't be enticed to investigate it.
Other things Victoria is learning to do is from the bear-walking position to push up with a hand and extend the angle between her body and legs. She has a kind of 'I wonder what will happen if I do this' look on her face when she does it. The other skill she is perfecting is with her right knee bent in a sitting position, bouncing up - like she might stand if she went a bit higher! She pulls herself up to standing quite nicely in her cot but still doesn't stay there long.
After my concerns that she has reduced fluid intake with the diminishing milk supply, one of the children managed to get her to drink from her little cup with soft lid on it. So progress is being made - it's quite exciting. when she has had food or milk and I say 'did you have some nice 'x' ' she makes a satisfying 'mmmmm' noise. It is always very exciting when children start to talk but if they can communicate their pleasure (or otherwise) about what goes on, that is also a little glimpse of who these small folks are, and a cause for rejoicing.
