Some Exciting News

Battley Cate and I just got home from the doc office.  I think it is finally safe to say that she is over whatever illness she had.  Thank you for your prayers for her!  She is cutting a new tooth which I'm sure doesn't feel good, but overall she is feeling much better!

I haven't given a good therapy update in a bit.  We are working on reaching, some signs, recognizing certain objects, identifying them when asked, and overall muscle tone and control.  The pic I will post below was taken yesterday at Physical Therapy.  Notice where the therapist's hands on the floor and one poking her in the neck to keep it tilted upright.  Battley is doing SO well with learning to sit up...don't get me wrong...we have a ways to go, but I could not be more proud of how hard she works to do these things!  Sitting up is something that I never dreamed would be in her future!  I really just hoped for her to be able to hold her own head up.  I do hope now that she can learn to sit on her own and someday become mobile in whatever way works for her!  She really does amaze me!

On to some other exciting news:

We have a local school for children ages birth-6 years who have special learning needs.  I, on the advice of B's therapists, put her on the waiting list about 6 months ago.  She was #37...which I was told could be a 3 year wait.

We received a note in the mail last week that she is now #19!  Truthfully I do not think I am ready for her to go to school (it's just a morning program), but that doesn't mean anything really because I'm not in the driver's seat here!  My prayer is for us to make the decision if the time comes that is in B's best interest.  Did I mention they are working to add another class?  This would probably mean she moves up on the list faster.

Why do I share all this "not really news yet" news?  So you can pray with us that IF this is the right thing for B that it fall into place at the right time.  Thank you!
