I have been waiting to capture this....


Lila has been working on this skill since we returned from Louisiana in January. We are so proud of her for catching on so quickly, and working so hard to make it happen! It has only been 8 months since having the stem cell treatment, and attending two intensive physical therapy programs.  Some days we get frustrated with her slow progression, and then I take a step back and realize that it has only been 8 months...she has come a long way in 8 months!  Life is good :-)  Check it out...

Oh my gosh!  Every time I watch it I can't believe it!  When I picked Lila up from school today, her teacher told me that she stood up independently 4 times today!  She tried many other times and was not successful, however four times is great!  This is a skill that she can use to learn to stand up and take independent steps to get around. SO EXCITING!  Glad I could share it with you all :-) (I hope you all can overlook the messy house :-)
