I love getting your emails and comments. I know that there are so many of our friends out there reading this blog and praying for us, but for some reason, it takes your daily encouragement to help keep us going and still feeling like our lives are friend-filled.
One friend emailed and asked some questions about some of the recent pictures I've posted of Ali sitting on the charming and beautiful Susan's lap and in the highchair. The question was: "Is she sitting up on her own now ... or is she more
Here's my answer:
Ali is being supported in the picture or the most part. But her head and torso control have really improved. So, yes, Ali is getting a "spot." But alot of that "is her." She's definitely more and more comfortable in her own skin. She pleases us at every therapy appointment. We're working hard to have her sitting up in the next six months. I'll probably blog the contents of this email as it relates to Ali since you're not the only one with questions.
Ali has a long way to go. Deb the Magician has done incredible work with Ali. Yesterday, we blew bubbles (yes, bubbles) and it was evident that Ali saw them. Deb the Magician is a speech language pathologist that uses methods that wake up and restore muscle control through out the whole body. Deb the Magician is an Anat Baniel Method /Feldenkrais Practitioner.
