Alina has been getting better and better at sitting up without any support. It's incredible to see how quickly those little muscles strenghten. It was only a few days ago that she even made her first attempts to sit up. Wherease before her favourite position was on her back (she still hates tummy time), now the only time she would lay on her back is when there are other babies around and she can touch their heads. She seems to have a fascination with hair at the moment :0). Alina has also started babbling. One of the sounds she makes sounds more like "help" ;0). She's also started puffing which is hilarious. She makes these little bubbles when she does it. I wonder if she learnt it from swimming? Alex and her take swimming lessons together and one of the tricks Alex learnt for grabbing her attention is to blow bubbles. We definitely have one smart little girl :0). I got really emotional today. Looking at her I realised how fast time flies! Despite everything that she's been through Alina is growing up like any other baby. She loves discovering the world around her and even the smallest thing makes her smile. When we embarked upon our CDH journey we never thought that we'd get to this point but we did and we are so thankful for our little blessing. Thank you to everyone for all your messages of support and your prayers so far. They mean a lot to us and we couldn't have made it without you.
