Workin' Hard

Whitney has been working hard on getting up on her hands and knees. She first started getting up and rocking on her hands in knees in August (I believe it was late August) and she has been working hard on this skill and building strength to be able to hold herself up ever since. She seems to take each task or skill and work on it until she has it perfected before she moves onto the next step of the skill. She is now holding herself up on her hands and knees more often and for longer periods of time. It is so cute to see her really start rocking once she is on her hands and knees, like she is so proud of herself.

Our physical therapist, Miss Heather, had a baby in September and we had a great physical therapist, Miss Miranda, cover her maternity leave. We are happy to have Miss Heather back, but will miss Miss Miranda. We have been very lucky with our therapists, all of them are wonderful! Here are some pictures of Whitney working hard for Miss Miranda on her last PT session with us:

She is doing awesome!! Before you know it, she will be crawling. I think she is on a very similar timeline to Ella at that age. Ella officially crawled at 15 months but was doing the all fours before that. It's funny because I see that picture of Whitney trying to stand at her little play table and remember when we tried that with Ella and she was so wobbly. Now, at 19 months) I just noticed her standing there after pulling up to her table herself and playing away. Sometimes it is just amazing how all of a sudden they have mastered a task!! Keep up the hard work Whitney!!

Great job Miss Whitney!Looks like Whitney is at the same place in development as Ruby.Ruby will get up on her hands and knees and rock back and forth but she wont move her arms to crawl forward yet.

she looks great in hands and knees and standing up! Watch out, she'll be crawling before you know it :) The mardi gras beads were the motivation to get Kayla to crawl after them :)
