Big Steps

This week we have made some BIG steps forward...

Maya had her first full day of school on Tuesday and she made it the whole day. YAY! It started out pretty rough, though. She cried and cried the from the time I started to fix her hair until she and Daddy left. Then more crying on the way, and of coarse when he dropped her off. Her poor teachers! Not only do they have to deal with all the other stuff, but now she having meltdowns, too? Luckily, they are two of the sweetest and most patient women I have ever been around, and after a little distracting, she was good to go! Thanks Ms. Candy and Ms. Shari for loving her like you do!

Yesterday we had our first Physical Therapy appointment. Maya's therapist, Alicia, is amazing. She worked with Maya for about 45 minutes and she does a great job of mixing work and play. It's kind of like Maya has her own personal trainer.

They worked on the whole body, but did focus on her legs more. She did exercises to strengthen her hip and practiced going up and down on her step stool. Alicia was very pleased and said that she felt like Maya had already improved since she had done the evaluation on Friday. Praise God!

In other family news, Rain lost one of her top teeth two days ago... well, I mean, Daddy pulled Rain's wiggly tooth out with some fishing line... This is a BIG deal for her! All of my kids have been late on loosing their teeth and she is the last person in her class to loose her top ones. The tooth fairy forgot to leave money in her pillow yesterday morning-- I guess I should call the 1800 number and complain :) But this morning she woke with this and very excited!

We have our post-op appointment today with Dr. Kup and an occupational therapist will be evaluating Maya on Monday, so I'll keep you posted on how that goes... Thanks for stopping by!
