Yesterday Mei stood by herself for a couple of seconds. It was really exciting to see! I was lying on the floor singing to her and she stood up holding onto me and then let go and balanced herself for a couple of seconds. I clapped for her and she could see how excited I was. She tried a couple of more times but kept falling on her butt. It was so cute! Then my husband came home and distracted her. But I was so happy that she finally tried. She's definitely got it in her, just like the physical therapist told me. I think in a few months she'll be walking. My husband thinks it will be sooner than that.
Mei and I are having more eye contact. Today she looked into my eyes as I held her and fed her a bottle. Geesh, she missed out so much on things when she was a baby and I can't do anything about that. But now that she is with us, I'm just trying to make up for it and help her know what love is. It's hard when I happen to have a problem with depression. But I put myself out there for her, and smile when she looks my way.
I really love her.
