You know those blue skies I was talking about? The sunrises and sunsets? The sand slipping through my fingers? The breeze on my face?
We have had some of those around here lately.
Over the weekend Eden was playing under my bed (her idea, not mine) and doing such great tummy time, pushing up on her arms so effortlessly. Then, during PT on Monday she did the very best floor sitting she has ever done, using a SWASH orthoses.
Today she was doing so well sitting on the floor independently with her legs crossed and propping with her hands. She was really sitting there. Holding herself up and weight bearing with her arms.
This is all pretty awesome to me. I was beginning to imagine it might never come.
It's hard sometimes, balancing vicariously in that place where you don't want to give up hope, but you are so afraid to hope.
Well, here we are. Eden is prop sitting on the floor for a good minute at a time completely on her own, and for up to 15 minutes with a little support from the SWASH. There is nowhere to go but forward.
How's that for a nice fresh breeze?
