Milestone #1: Pulling Up.
That's right, Ziva is pulling her little self up to stand. She's very wobbly, but she is doing it. Today we'll have to lower her mattress so she doesn't topple out of her crib. Yesterday was the first day she did it, and she seems to do best pulling up from Vince's or my legs when we're laying on our side in front of her. But she's also reaching for the bookshelf, coffee table, TV stand, couch, and of course, that crib rail! I'll try to get some pictures of her in action and get them up soon.
Milestone #2: Flight.
Okay, so our daughter is not Wonder Woman....she won't be flying that way. But she will be flying to Florida this Thursday with Vince when he goes for Andrew's wedding. I'm a teeny bit nervous, but mainly for Vince if Ziva is fussy on the flight....I wouldn't want to go through that alone. But we're preparing everything we can to keep her happy, comfy, and healthy, and we're praying a lot! If you're a praying person, pray for us that all the flights are on time, especially connections, that the weather is beautiful (no hurricanes!) and the flight is smooth, that Ziva doesn't cry much on the flight, that her ears don't hurt her, that she'll be able to sleep and eat enough, that Vince will be cool, calm, and collected in keeping up with Ziva and all of her stuff, that they just happen to have an empty seat next to them for comfort's sake!, that all the people around them on the plane are good sports and love babies, that Ziva has a super fun time with her Florida family, that Vince has a blast with his friends and family, and that Drew and Chrissy's wedding is special and just what they wanted. Oh yes, and please pray for Vince and Ziva's health....I'm recovering from a week long cold (one of the perks of being a teacher...) and I don't want either of them to get sick this week!
We should have lots of pictures to post after the trip, so be on the lookout for those, and many more milestones to come!
