There are so many little things I love about each of my children. Tonight I got Emma ready for a bath after wearing her nighttime bottle and decided it was a great opportunity in her little shy mood she was trying to play off to take a few pictures.
I'm gonna pretend to be shy... do you see this though? That's where God fixed my heart.
I'm holding on tight, never letting go. And I'll send you some kisses too!
Then I think I'll throw some spit kisses your way and take a rest... on my FOOT.
It really is a good head rest when you're tired. Or I can fold these little things up tight.
But there's always room for smiles and giggles even if I'm tired!
Mom makes me into a burrito so she can wash my hair. Otherwise I throw the cup and make a mess.
No tub baths for a bit still, but I kind of like that baby in the mirror getting her bath!
Mom spins me around at the end to wash my legs then I LAUGH while she scrubs my back!
Ah... That was exhausting!
Now for my question...
Emma has done this position with her hand a lot lately. We're not sure whether she did it before her heart surgery or not, but it's only her left hand. And when she does it, her arm and hand are very rigid. I can put my finger on her hand and she'll grab my finger in that same rigid position, in fact the one she's holding my hand above is why I ended up with her hand. The first here was when I was getting her ready for a bath, the second is (obviously since it's all wet LOL) is when I just finished washing her hair.
Usually it's when she's agitated a little, sometimes when she's just laying and playing. Along the same lines... We noticed a lot of stuff she does with her RIGHT foot, and not a whole lot with her left. I hadn't noticed it a whole lot but when a friend was visiting earlier in the week she asked if Emma uses her left foot. Huh, hadn't noticed. Anyway, does anyone have a child that does this with their arm, and if so- do you know the cause? Thanks in advance...
