Last night Cordelia was awake late. I sat on the floor as she was rolling on the ground looking around, grabbing her feet and babbling and talking. I watched as she discovered how to blow a raspberry. Tentatively at first. Then she realized that she could repeat this new sound. She reached her little fingers up to her lips and felt them. I am sure she was thinking about the strange tickle that comes with blowing raspberries. Then I did it back at her, her eyes widened. She paused for a moment and went right back to it and then looked at me waiting for me to respond with another one.
Every day is filled with dozens of such discoveries and connections. I am in constant awe as I watch human development unfold before my eyes. She is thriving, she is growing.
