Well, I finally have some pictures and videos to share! Thank you to my wonderful hubby for staying with SueSue while she is napping so I can spend some time on the computer:)
Therapy is going so well. We have already seen an improvement in Suzie's posture and extension in her right arm. She is starting to stand much better as well, not leaning on furniture as much, although she still isn't standing on her own. We are so thankful for the great service she is getting.
She is chatting a ton too! Here are some of her new words: Mommy (instead of Mama) and Daddy, walk, yuck, neigh (horse sound), shoe, sock, play, go, Mary (her video), hippo, bath, two. She is so social...all the therapists know her because she is always saying "hi" to them.
Let me quickly paint a picture of what it looks like every time I go to the store with Suzie. Suzie says, "Hi....hi...hi....hi...hi" to everyone she sees. Even if they say "hi" back, she just keeps chatting. Then they will say, "what beautiful red hair! Where did she get that hair from." I will tell them that neither of her parents have red hair, but she has an aunt on Daddy's side with it and a great-grandma on Mama's side. Meanwhile, Suzie is persistently saying "hi" the whole time:) I can't remember the last time we were out where this did not happen...seriously.
We had so much fun painting the youth room with the kids last week. Here are a few pictures. The whole room was painted in the blue that is on the top. We added the orange on the bottom, the white stripe, and painted all the door jams and border on the whiteboard white. We think it turned out pretty well!
This is what happens when I let Suzie feed herself...
Now we're just hanging outside with our neighbors and enjoying the sunshine!
Suzie is frequently doing more of the correct crawling rather than army crawling. She is so fast combat crawling though, it's no wonder why she prefers it!
Here's a video of Suzie in her big girl pigtails doing her favorite thing ever...watching a video of Mary Rice Hopkins.
And here is is kissing her baby...so sweet!
Thanks to all for your prayers and encouragement. We are so blessed!
