Tonight, I held my niece for the second time. The first time, she started crying in less than thirty seconds and I had to hand her back over to my sister. This time, we made it almost a whole minute before she cried. This is progress.
She is six months old today and I got her a talking dog toy. It’s super soft and when you press the dog’s paws, it speaks or sings a tune. I also got her a card but she can’t read yet, so we’ll put it aside for when she can.
I’m seeing my family again this weekend for Father’s Day. Let’s see how long she’ll let me hold her then.
