Achievement: the reach across!

 

Laelia has been able to lift her arms a couple inches while lying on her back for a while now. She arches her back to achieve the lift. She also has been able to bend her elbow under certain conditions.  But I was thrilled to see her reach across her body! Then I realized that  the little acrobat was simply putting all her skills together! It’s kinda hard for her and you can see the effort painted all over her face, but she’s determined. And of course once she did it once, and was excessively praised, she did it eight more times just for the excited noises that would erupt. :) By the end when I had documented this ability  in several  ways she did it again while fussing, like,  “I know you’re thrilled, but can we stop now, pleeeeease Mom!” Then she fell right to sleep! :)  Hmmm, maybe Mom was being a bit of a slave driver. For those of you that have mentioned you can’t get the videos, below is the process documented  through enough uploaded pictures to make  all your computers crash. :) Enjoy.
