I mentioned in an earlier blog about new pants Rachel's PT gave her. So, I thought I would post a pic of them and her getting up on her hands and knees in them.
Here they are on her. You can see they are like spandex shorts that have been sewn together in the middle.
Now here she is getting into the hands and knees position. Notice how her knees are directly under her and not to the side, where they would be if she didn't have the pants on.
Rachel has really been working on some new skills too. She is able to pick up a Gerber puff with her fingers and put into her mouth 8 out of 10 times. Today she didn't even let me do it for her. As soon as I held it out with my hand, she snatched it up! She is also able to hold her bottle and finish her bottle as long as there is only 3oz. in it. We have also notice that she is understanding two words/signs: "more" and "food". When we do either of those signs there is an immediate response by her. It's so nice to be able to communicate even that little bit with her. I think it's time to add a couple more signs into our repertoire!
