Retro Rissa Roo Day Vol II

You may or may not remember Retro Rissa Roo Day Vol I. I decided to continue the series because I so very much enjoy looking back at old videos of Marissa and seeing how cute and cuddly she was back then. Not that she isn't cute and cuddly now but, well, I think you know what I mean.

This series of videos is from when she was about 9 to 12 months old. The first videos you see of her wearing her PMV (purple speaking valve) are right around the time when she was able to tolerate wearing it all day, when she was about 10 1/2 months old. The last video is just after she turned one. I just love listening to her little voice from back then, when she was still discovering that she even had a voice. She has amazed us with her vocal and verbal ability. For someone who didn't even have a voice until she was almost a year old, she is doing phenomenally. We are so proud of her!

I can't get over how tiny she was. I totally forgot she used to be this itty bitty skinny minny! I love her mucho mucho! :) She amazes me everyday beyond belief.
Love you all!

If that wasn't the cutest video, I don't know what is! She was so itty bitty with the sweetest little voice ever.
