This week she figured out how to roll a toy with wheels When she figured this cute purple elephant rolled, she held onto it all day and just switched it from her left to right hand. The little handle made it so easy for her to carry all over the house.
And, this is our little cutie walking a couple of steps by herself. She really is steady on her feet, and not afraid to walk by herself. It won't be long and she will be running !
These new skills may not be that exciting to anyone else. But, they are milestones for Maggie. Only two short months ago, she was sitting on a hotel bed in China staring at her hands and had no clue what a toy was. It was very obvious to us that Maggie had never played with a toy. She didn't have a clue what a toy was and was happy just touching wood,feeling a chair or playing with her hands. We have had to show Maggie what playing is and how to play with toys. She is a very quick learner and has NO problem playing now. At first, we would get just one toy out at a time so we wouldn't overwhelm her. Now, her room is scattered with toys and she has so much fun playing and laughing ! Sometimes, I find myself just watching her play. It's like watching a light come on when there was just darkness.
