She did it! Lauren has started crawling. She started creeping forward a couple feet or so on November 13, then went a little further each day after that. Now she is on the move, making her way from room to room. Now the fun begins for Mommy!
Lauren continues to show a lot of progress with her gross motor and fine motor skills. She is able to pull herself to a standing position, and even purposely steadies herself so she can let go and stand alone briefly.
She is now banging two objects together. We worked on this in therapy for a long time, so it was a joy to see her "get it." She is also learning to adapt her hand to pick up and manipulate objects out of containers.
Lauren is now able to stay more focused. Her attention span is improving, and she seems quiet when she is "working," like she is concentrating. She is showing more problem-solving skills and an interest in figuring out what we are trying to show her.
So, I remain optimistic and am so grateful for her therapists who are dedicated to keeping her on track with her development.
We are looking forward to a wonderful first Christmas with Lauren!
