A Quick Recap...

I took Alida to see the hand doctor the other day. He wasn't entirely sure what was wrong with Alida's hand so we have to go and get an X-ray and then make another appointment to see a Certified Hand Specialist. He doesn't think it looks all that serious....he mentioned "trigger thumb" but expressed that if that's what it is then it's a very slight case of it as there was no "clicking" when her thumb was moved and there was a wide range of motion.

On another note...we just got back from the beach! A mini gal's vacation. Alida did wonderfully! She ate lots of sand and drank lots of ocean water.....isn't that what all 13 month old's do? She was a handful though....she wanted to walk EVERYWHERE!!! She was so sick of the stroller! We tried to let her walk as much as we could but with the crowds it was somewhat difficult. Being the independent little girl that she is every time she was returned to her stroller she would play the "stiff as a board" game. So much fun!! On vacation she seemed to babble more than ever and now that we are home she seems to be saying "ball" (or some form of that word) and "dog" or "down". It's so cute to watch! I have also been teaching her some more sign language....she knows milk and all done. I am currently working on "please", "thank you", "more" and "drink". Either she'll say it or sign it! That's what I figure!

Lounging on one of our MANY walks.

Not sure if she likes her hands to be sandy!

Enjoying her beach toys!

She LOVED the birds! AMAZING!

All tuckered out after one of her MANY rides/walks!
