Catherine is always up for a challenge, so today I got her some training wheels. Now she can ride like her big sisters, sort of.
If only she could see!!!
She is very serious about practicing!
Anastasia got a new helmet too, which Francesca wasn't impressed with.
Francesca is really making great progress with bonding. I was worried at first. She had all the signs of not attaching. Lately, though, her face just lights up when I come in the room. She actually hugs me!
The doctors said kids with cleft palates can't babble much, but Francesca must be the exception. She rattles on and on, quite loudly, all day long. She knows what she is talking about and hopefully someday I will too!
Victoria's new night hand splints have made a huge difference. Two months ago her fingers were so tight, I couldn't pry them open with a crowbar. She also hated to have her hands touched at all.
Since for almost two years she only used one finger. It's been hard habit to break, but now if I say "open" she will open up her other fingers. Now she can actually grab my hand! Her left hand is much stronger, so I am hoping to finally have a leftie like me! I tickled her palm today and she actually laughed!
She will be getting night feet splints soon and also leg braces. She's going to look so cool!
