Here are some wonderful videos from our trip. I don't know if it was being in a new place or just the right time, but Alice really blossomed while we were gone. She ate like a champ, slept wonderfully at night, her hand eye coordination took off and she is picking up small objects with focus and accuracy, and her hair is finally growing!
This is Alice (4.5 months) and Emmy (10.5 months). Aren't they ridiculously sweet with each other?
Here's our girl yelling at a Pooh Bear.
This is Alice laughing hysterically. Alice had previously just been doing little 'heh' type noises until the weekend preceding this video when she met my niece Harper. Harper was bouncing on her knees on the bed towards Alice and I when Alice saw her and let out her first real giggle. It was beautiful. But then this happened and she must have been saving them all up for this one perfect moment. Oh the hilarity!
