She wanted to hold her brother – not too much longer and he’ll be bigger than she is! Sleepy beauty
Grandparents and family came into town. I was so shocked she went to total strangers and even gave her cousin her special “I love you” touch!
After reading/looking at the pictures about how Josie over at Confessions of the Chromosomally Enhanced (last picture of the post) uses her gait trainer, I asked our PT about turning Bella around in hers. Bella tends to lean way forward and just pushes the gait trainer with her arms and pulling her legs to keep up rather than walking. We haven’t figured out if that was lungs, legs, laziness, or learned behavior. But what a difference this new direction has made! She has to weight shift (something she HATES to do) and has to use the trainer as a trainer and not as a crutch for her leaning. This looks a whole lot like walking! Love it! She actually went for a few feet!
Family Reunion Pictures – Jason and I had talked and talked about this gathering. Normally we don’t take her to things like this, but she did great! She was so excited to be there. She knew it was something special and important. I’m glad she came. She stayed through pictures and lunch. By then she was tired and ready to leave.
A great picture of Bella Signing “Grandpa”
