Trying out some new stuff at PT - December 2011

We've had a bit of a rough patch lately where Annabelle has been exerting her independence and not really wanting to do as much as we would like her to do in therapy.  Her therapist and I are working hard to come up with some fun new activities that will motivate her to do what we need her to do to continue to strengthen her.  When is is willing to walk/stretch, etc, she is doing super GREAT! 

I'm looking forward to what 2012 has in store for our sweet and sometimes super feisty girl!

Showing off a bit

On Christmas Day at my Dad's house Annabelle was having a great time playing with her brothers and her cousins.  She was particularly enjoying her time with Mia, her "older" girl cousin.  At one point Annabelle began pushing herself up, almost to a standing position.  We have never seen her do this and were all very excited about her strength and self motivation to do this.  It was quite apparent that Annabelle was trying to keep up with and possibly impress her cousin with her abilities.  Whatever the reason, I liked what I saw!
