Two different gestures. One amazing day.
It's days like this that make me glad i'm home and not working.
Late this afternoon, I was sitting with her and getting distracted by the news on tv while holding her pacifier in my hand. Suddenly she reached forward, grabbed it out of my hand and promptly popped it right in her mouth. I immediately looked at her since i was so surprised, and she gave me this sweet little grin and giggle. Like she was just as surprised at what she did, as i was. So amazing.
Then tonight as i was putting her to sleep, I had my hands dangling over the edge of the crib. Usually she puts her hands at her side, or behind her head to get comfy and ready for for sleep. She usually looks at me, but doesn't reach out, doesn't interact too much. But tonight, she took her left hand and very deliberately reached out and grabbed my hand and held it. Then with her other hand, she pulled out the pacifier out of her mouth and held it there so she could smile and talk to me. Truly amazing. Our little baby is turning into a people. :)
