Who's that baby in the mirror?

Typical developing babies will start looking in the mirror somewhere around 6 months or so (I think).  That's when they start to develop a sense of self.  Sadie has never done this. This mirror has been set up in her "therapy corner" at our house for the last 4 months.  Sadie has never given it a second glance.  It was just another thing to her.  Well today Sadie was laying on the floor looking at the colored flower that sits above the mirror.  Her eyes moved down looked in the mirror and rolled over the other way.  Then she stopped, turned just her head, and looked in the mirror.  She then got a huge smile on her face and rolled the rest of her body over.  She stared at herself forever. She would smile and laugh.  Then lay real still, no smile, and then start all over again.  I wish I would have gotten a video of it, but at least I got a picture.  And this was no fluke either.  She has done this multiple times since that day.
