Official Day 10 & 11

Wow, hard to believe we only have 3 days left of the official 14 day visitation period. The last two days Kathryn decided to mix up our routine a little. Fine with us! Yesterday she was full of smiles but quiet and content. Today she was very energetic and playful. We can really see the difference from 2 weeks ago. Now, when I touch her face to clean her nose (all the Moms understand this tendancy) she even tries to push my hand away. On her tummy she lift her head and looks around and kicks her legs. When we hold her up and put her feet on the bed, for a few seconds she will bear weight on her feet. She definitely wasn't doing this 2 weeks ago! It's amazing how much a 6 month old can grow in such a short period of time with lots of love and attention.

Both yesterday and today, Kathryn played so hard for the first hour, drank her bottle (quick!) and was ready for a nap. Dave was holding her and she just stared off into dreamland:-) She slept for a good 30 minutes. She woke up with about 30 minutes left in our visit and was ready to play some more. We still spend the time stretching her, doing massage, playing with some toys and just cuddling.

The reality of leaving her behind is starting to hit. The caregivers really do take good care of her, which makes the leaving a little easier. However, we keep visioning the day we get to take her out with us and the day we get to bring her home to Indialantic! What a joy that will be!
