Lately, as Hannah has experienced just an explosion of social behavior and skills she never possessed, and never flaunted before, she has now started to do things regular ol' babies do. I was sort of pleased when she started trying to get out of the car seat on her own during arrivals and departures. I was pleased she was taking initiative. Like reaching up to touch a pan on the stove! We had a perfect outcome, it was hot but not blistering and didn't cause any injury and she learned the word hot and has not been seen trying that again. These new skills also include using excessive flirtiness and smiles to get her way. She hits you if you anger her. She runs away when you call her, laughing maniacally. She can also do all of these things:
Copy big sister
Climb up on stuff
Not refuse to do things with her right hand (full disclosure, I stuck the ball in her hand, but her ability to keep or dump an object is vastly improved)
Weight bearing on her affected arm during play
And be wicked fast at doing things that Claire never did, like pushing the call button in the elevator at the Children's Museum, summoning staff to our aid in the blink of an eye.
