Monkey Update

"Weeee, this is fun! But boy is it bright!"

Thought I'd give a quick update and also prayer request for Madison. My cold is pretty much gone but her cold is just hanging on with no end in sight. The poor little thing still has a nose running like a faucet and seems like she's going to cough up a lung every few minutes. She did pretty well this past weekend but was definitely not her usual social self. Today she seems better, back at home where it's quiet & the activity has died down. Even still, she's pretty fussy & miserable overall. Please pray that her tiny little body will rid itself of this cold soon!

On a lighter note, the Little Monkey continues to crawl everywhere at lightning speeds and pull herself up anywhere she can. If she's standing up to the couch or coffee table, she will make side steps. She will also take a few walking steps if you hold both of her hands and stand her up.

Her biggest feat lately is she is standing on her own, unsupported! She just started the end of last week. I looked into the dining room from the kitchen, and there she was in the doorway, rising from a squat position, holding on to nothing with her arms out to steady herself. My jaw literally fell open! It's so cute but also looks so funny to see since she is such a tiny little thing. Since then she continues to practice her new act throughout each day. I have yet to capture it on film though. Every time she does it, I grab the camera, whip it out of the case, turn it on, focus it on her.... and she sits back down. :-P But I'll get a picture as soon as I can!

P.S. 10 months today & no teeth yet!

Aw what a clever wee lass. She sure is growing up.
I'll say a prayer for her that she'll get better soon. It's so hard to see them not feeling well, you want to be able to just hug them and make it all better.
