On the 10th, we were at a friend's house when Sapphira started sitting half way up on her own (sitting on her rump but bent over at the waist with her hands near her feet propping her up)...we were so excited since this was the first time she had done this with out going face first into the carpet. The next day, we were showing Grandma her new trick when she decided to sit all the way up (no hands!!) all by herself!! She was able to do this for several minutes at a time...what a big girl!! Since then, she has been getting stronger and sitting for longer and longer. Right now, she sits for 15-20 minutes at a time before getting wobbly. She fusses now to sit up...so cute. I have to admit though, it is so weird to see this little tiny girl sitting up on her own...Malachi was so much bigger when he started and it just seems like I have this 2 month old who is sitting on her own...strange! :) Malachi likes it, too...he sits along side her and puts toys in her lap and plays with her. He's such a good big brother!
She loves playing with this farm toy...can you tell? :)
She actually bangs the drum with the stick!
She also loves playing with Malachi's Mega Blocks. They fit perfectly in her hand and must taste wonderful since she can't keep them out of her mouth! hehehe
Welcome to our little cyber-spot! Our sweet family has been split in two...four of us walk together here on earth, while 3 of our sweet babies are snuggling with our Savior. Natalie was born on March 14 and met Jesus on March 16, 2006. Her little brother, Malachi, joined us in May 2007. Our second daughter, Sapphira arrived in April 2009. Our precious 4th child, whom we named Asher, met Jesus in Febuary 2011. Our 5th sweet baby, Azra, joined her siblings in Heaven in August 2011. Baby Amira is due to arrive in March 2013. A very patient dog and a cat round out our crew. Thanks for spending time with us!
