Hands and Feet!

For several weeks, Teresa has been really interested in her hands... she holds then in front of her face and moves them around and explores them and sucks on them, etc... Recently she has made two big developmental steps... First of all, she's started using her hands to bring things to her mouth and suck on them. It's quite impressive to se her suddenly start using those hands for something. Yesterday she was in her play gym and grabbed a hold of a rattle that was hanging above her, and started yanking on it to get it to her mouth, only the chain of baby 'biners wasn't long enough... That's pretty purposeful. I want it!

Then later in the day she was in the swing and I realized she was leaning forward in order to look at her feet... She was basically doing with her feet what she'd been doing with her hands for weeks... clapping them together, rubbing them around and just exploring. it was so neat to watch her be so involved. Yup, our baby is discovering the world!
