On Wednesday, Osei, Palesa and I had dinner with Cyndi and Ron at their house. The meal was delicious (no surprise there), the conversation wonderful, and all enjoyed getting to know Palesa. Cyndi was astonished at the developmental progress Palesa had made in a few short weeks! We put the blanket on the table and propped her up on her belly, and she was happy, smiling, and drooling the entire time. She held her head and neck up for at least 3 minutes, though none of us bothered to time it as we encouraged her and made funny faces to keep her smiling. This was especially fun for all of us because she maintained such good eye contact.
Yes, we make her work very hard to hold up her head and neck all by herself, but it is definitely paying off- Palesa is one strong little baby!
