I'm pretty sure you don't.  When we put you down you almost always immediately crash

Where do I even begin?  Your new therapies and our brushing regime have opened up a new world.  Your latest accomplishment has been with fine motor.  You are consistently and excitedly "sharing,"  passing a ball back and forth.  Just this week you have started placing all of the stars on the star stacker.   You are still walking assisted by one of our fingers.  You have attempted standing by yourself, but immediately fall.  You are so serious and dramatic when you fall.  You are standing flat footed without DAFO's and can dance side to side.  You have got good rhythm.

  1. I love this update! I know we aren't supposed to compare, but can it be totally helped? Owen and Alli are really close in size (she's got him by 1/2 an inch)...but she must have the sweetest tiniest feet (or his are giant, I'm not sure, maybe it's that?).
