A couple days ago I put Elyse on her baby gym that has stuffed animals hanging over her head. She reached up and grabbed the parrot and was holding on for awhile swinging her arm back and forth. I was really impressed and definitely think she is advanced for her age. I mean I really have nothing to compare it to, so I have no idea if she really is, but I am just going to say that since I am her mom:) I put a picture below. She is also starting to smile at me, which is so exciting. When I say "WOW" really big I can almost always get a smile. I loved her when she was a new baby, but it is so much fun to have her now smiling at me and starring at me when I talked to her. I can't believe she is already 6 1/2 weeks old, it really does go by so fast. Anyway, I hope you all are doing well. I will hopefully start posting more often now.
