Surae Update


I went back to work last week to help out with exam week and while I was away Surae’s Nana and Pop Pop babysat for the week.  I was very nervous about how Surae was going to respond and anticipated a phone call with Surae screaming in the background from a very nerve-wracked grandparent, but everything went very well.  Surae took to both of them really quickly and had a great time.  It also seemed to help quite a bit with some of her separation anxiety issues she has been having with me.  She is doing much better now with me leaving the room and putting her down.  And she is going to sleep all by herself and sleeping through the night.  Surae also started pulling to stand last week too.  When we first got her, she could only sit up.  But, in the past month, she has learned to crawl (although it is an “army” crawl), go from sitting to crawling and crawling to sitting, and pull to stand.  She is making quick progress.  She is also really trying to talk.  She can say/attempt to say “Mama”, “Baba” (Daddy in Chinese), Uh-Oh (A Surae favorite after she drops things on the ground), up, cat, hello, and bye. 

While Surae’s Nana was here, she took some absolutely adorable pictures that I wanted to share.  She can be quite the ham!

    Even Nana can take good pictures of a cute kid like Surae! We had a fun day and enjoyed riding in the wagon and eating cookies. Love that big smile when she grins and her giggle. She and her cousin are both coming along just fine. Love my babies…Nana
