We try to give Moriah as much tummy time as we can (and as much as she’s happy with), and boy is it paying off. She’s able to dig in those toes and spin her body around like the hands on a clock, and she can also get her legs cranking and move herself forward inch by inch. Crawling! She doesn’t get too far, but she’s moving and definitely has the idea. It’s so fun to watch her, and she doesn’t lack for cheerleaders around here.
Our therapist said Moriah needs lots of stimulation for good development. Um, not a problem with five adoring older siblings!
Visual stimulation? Constant.
Auditory? It is never quiet here. In addition to lots of Bach and Mozart, Moriah is treated to regular performances of The Sound of Music, complete with choreography. Hannah and Elisabeth (and sometimes Joseph) can put on quite a show.
Tactile? We’ve got it covered. And Moriah is covered—covered in lots of hugs and kisses all day long.
Since the weekend, Moriah has also been smiling on purpose sometimes. How we love that! Can’t wait to catch it with the camera.
