What's new with Ilana?

Why, funny you should ask! Starting Saturday night, she began to stand up on her own without holding on to anything. Soooo cute to see. By the end of her practice time, she was even able to clap for herself for being so clever!

She can walk holding on with one hand.

She can (still) climb like a monkey.

She can do a terrific "Shema": covers eyes and says "ahhhhhh".

She can now say "Eva" for "Batsheva" (her first word was "Ana" for Chana).

Current signs: more, all done, "gotta make", nurse. We also use eat, drink, and "thank you" with her, but she hasn't done those yet.

That's awesome! I love that she can do that much of the shma. It gives new meanings to the idea of having these words on your heart "oov'koomecha" (as you get up...)

Have you heard the song "Yesh li yom yom chag, yesh li chag yom yom"?

Keep celebrating! Yay Ilana!

All the best,

P.S. I couldn't comment on the SCD picture post because comments were turned off.

I wanted to say that I hope you're compiling an SCD cookbook, and that those gorgeous pictures are part of the groundwork...

(Something ELSE for you to do in your copious spare time...)
