Just a quick post, because I'm so excited!!!
This past week Avi kept telling me that Leah was "walking" along the couch, I pretty much responded with something along the lines of "you're crazy". Just last week in PT, Nadine (PT), said to start working with her on cruising, but that it could take awhile. Well, in true Leah fashion, she was totally doing it!! I was playing with her this morning and all of the sudden I look over and she is cruising from one end of the couch to another!! WOO HOO!!!
A few minutes after that she found her balance and stood by herself for a good minute! She has been doing this all day!!
After her cruising episode, Leah had PT. I told Nadine about it and she tried to get Leah to do it again. Leah happily did! Nadine did notice she still is majorly locking her leg and for now is on her toes. She said not to get concerned about any of it yet, because she is still learning her way. Next week, we will try some knesio tape on the back of her knee to see if that helps the locking.
Just had to share--I really wasn't expecting her to start cruising yet...but hey, anything is possible!!!
This weekend is Leah's first birthday party, it's supposed to be outside. Of course, we are getting slammed with rain! I hope it goes well! How can it not? We will be celebrating 1 year of our sweet little girl! The best year of our lives!
(Side note, Leah's real bday is not until the 25th)
