my baby did it!
yesterday was such a great day. i saw maya crawling on her own for the first time ever. she took a few "steps" and then stopped. it's not a full out crawl yet but she is moving forward for sure. the fact that she is moving her arms forward and then her legs is such a big deal. it's something that has taken a while to get.
this last week she has really grown up so much. it's amazing that so many changes have occurred the week of her 1 year birthday. literally on her birthday she started telling me that she didn't want to sit in her high chair. she did this by arching her back when i would try and sit her in it. normally i would hate such things but for some reason it doesn't bother me as much. it's almost like i'm glad that she is starting to express herself.
yesterday while watching her i couldn't help but jump up and down. i felt so happy. my little baby is growing up. she is starting to wave bye bye, more and all done. she is learning her first language now. it is a wonder to see it happen in front of my eyes.
i want to write all these little milestones down so i won't ever forget the hard work maya has put into making them happen. i hope that one day she can be an example to others. i hope that she can be an inspiration just like adults with down syndrome that i see that have accomplished so much.
