Over 40 mama — Adventures in poop, patience, and first-time parenthood

Milestone: Opposable thumbs!

The bug has figured out how to hold things in her hand and not let go! Perhaps this is her Taurean side, or maybe it’s just what 15 week olds do when they realize what those funny little pegs that stick out of their palms are for. Either way, it’s yet another example of her natural tenacity.

It’s been so funny to watch her start to understand what hands do. For about a week, she would hold one set of fingers in the other hand, sort of like she was wringing them with worry. Before this, she just stuffed them in her mouth. Now, when we put a toy in her lap, she swings super wide, pulling her arm way out to the side and up, like a tiny baseball pitcher before she gets it. SOoo cute. Hope to post a video soon.
