Now she can go to college

Last week Sofía suddenly began to realize that she has hands. And that when colorful things dangle in front of her face, she can move those hands. And touch. And grab. And pull Mommy’s hair.

I was getting a little bit worried – was I not playing with her right? Was I not stimulating her enough? Was she -gasp- dumb? – because she hadn’t yet begun to realize that she could control her random arm flailings. She showed no interest in trying to touch objects around her, though What to Expect said she ought to be reaching by 12 weeks. But now – at 3 1/2 months – she seems to have gotten it. Most of the time. I’m so relieved.

And she’s an old pro at sucking her thumb, which mommy credits with letting her sleep through the night.
