Joy has been working so hard on getting to a sitting position.
This is huge! I say that a lot with Joy. :) She is an amazing baby!
She can be on her tummy and get to a sitting position. She can commando crawl and then sit up.
Yeah Joy! Also notice that she will support her weight on her arms (even if it's only for a few seconds - yeah therapy!)
My battery died, that's why the video is so short, but you get the idea. :)

And this video is just for fun!
Joy HATES cold milk. She won't drink it - period!
Ice cream, though, is an exception to the temperature rule.
She LOVES ice cream. Enjoy Sammi's video!

Lest you get too excited, I did NOT cut off her top knot. :) And I'm not gonna!

But I did trim up her hair on the bottom - now it's all straight and so cute!

Commando Crawling

Joy is commando crawling! Wahoo!!! This is a huge step forward for her. We are so proud.
She is becoming mobile.

A sleepy picture of Joy for you to enjoy:

And a cute one of her. She fell asleep on Sammi:

All the Little Fishes

Joy's communication teacher said to make sure we are doing songs with Joy that have hand motions.  Our first song that we have concentrated on is "All the Little Fishes."  We sing it and move her hands.  She is starting to do it herself!

All the little fishes are swimming in the ocean.

Swimming in the ocean.

Swimming in the ocean.

All the little fishes are swimming in the ocean.



Pop! (clap)

New day, new therapy.  Now we are learning about taking turns and words, signs, and songs!  Here Miss Kari is showing Joy on and off.  She LOVED the bells!!  It makes great noise!

Books - wonderful books.  Identification, words, and pointing (that's a new one!)

We also played games and sang songs.

Good thing therapy is so fun!!
