Coordination...

As time moves on, I seem to be getting better at a myriad of things without even realizing it! Now, obviously, there are some things that I am learning that I have to work pretty hard on (like walking) but other things I just kind of pick up on stuff because I see other people doing it, and not only do those things look like they might help me get around and make life easier, a lot of those things are a lot of fun!

I have been doing a lot of this stuff for weeks, but it's only now that I feel confident enough to share some of my accomplishments...Now granted...some of these things, like feeding myself, need a little bit more work...

And there are those that say reading the book upside down is a problem, but I prefer to think of it as looking at things from a different perspective....
But really...what it comes down to is learning new things, and applying those things to life. Learning stuff is never easy, but when you have a moment where something you've been trying to do without success finally works out. Not only do you feel accomplished, but the people around you clap and get excited. They're proud of you, and I love that feeling of making them happy, while also being happy myself.

But things still need work, and the work usually leads to fun, and rewarding feelings...like when 9 out of 10 times, I spill water all over myself when I try and use a grown-up cup (Or I fling water everywhere) but that 1 time it works...

...just feels so good...

Mom recently taught me to take a bow and say "Thank You" after doing something cool. (Although, when I say it, it sounds more like "Ah-Oooh")

In other news....Tonight, Dad and I hop in the car to head off to Connecticut! It's been a few months since I've been back, and I'm eager to show off my new walking, and all the new words I know...
