This little girl never ceases to amaze me! Just look what she did today.

Her brother was doing his school work on the floor beside her, and she grabbed the pencil away from him and started scribbling on his book. And look how she's holding the pencil! Is that not an almost perfect pencil grip? And is she a lefty after all? I've been trying to make her use her right hand this whole time. She continues to surprise us every day. To think that only a few short months ago, she couldn't even hold her own bottle! Amazing girl.

Here's my caption for you to send back to Ukraine. . .Less than a year being home and she can already label the parts of a tooth. She is one very smart little girl. :)

Love the picture.

Remembering the 1st time she picked up a fork and threw it on the floor. She is really playing CATCH UP. Are we getting anywhere close to a first step? Maybe I'll see it in February.
