Jessi and Lizzy played with Joy and bubbles.
I wanted to show you some of her signs – so fun! Her ability to communicate is growing so much! She is learning new signs all the time. I love baby and hat. Here are some that she uses all the time.
The Itsy-Bitsy Spider
All the Little Fishes
And the sign I am most proud of – this is Joy’s version of “Amen.” She folds her arms so reverently and then signs Amen at the end of prayers – yeah!
Helping Daddy vacuum
Physical Therapy – working on walking up the stairs
And finally her frustration for the week – hip huggers. They are basically spandex shorts that have been sewn together down the middle. It is supposed to help her walk more normally. It is definitely more difficult to walk this way, and her therapist admitted it might be too late, but we’ll see. We are also looking into horse back riding to help with her gait. We’ll see. The problem I foresee with the horse back riding is that my other girls might suddenly develop gaits so that they “HAVE” to have horse back riding too. :)
