I had this grand vision of the first time Emily got to swing on the swings. It know to most it sounds like a silly vision. To me it was a big deal because Emily is very limited physically. She is about a 3-6 month age range developmentally.
She got a huggabebe for Christmas and it is just perfect for her in one of the bucket swings.
Joe and I had this planned and Emily was in a great mood!
We found a local park and to my excitement no one was at the swings. Emily tends to shut down it there is too much noise and by shut down I mean fall asleep.
We get everything ready, put her in her huggabebe, stick her in the swing, and then instantly this......
She HATED it!!! Every single second.
We will try again sometime in the fall. She will be in a cast for 3 month next week so maybe after some time she will enjoy it :), we'll see.
My girl would just rather I hold her and snuggle at the park then swing. That is ok. She is only little for a while.
We are just so proud of her. She is doing new stuff everyday! Just yesterday she held her arms up when I unbuckled her car seat (she knew she wanted me to pick her up!!)
She is holding her trunk better and better everyday.
When we hold her she does not just lay her head down on our shoulders, she holds her own head up when she is not tired.
I could go on and on about the inch stones she is making.
Emily may not have many milestones, some days they will be inchstones, centimeterstones, or even millimeterstones but heck they are something!!
I just love her so and I am so thankful I get to watch her grow up, no matter how far she may get.
