Since I know no one here comes to read about me, I'll get back to our star. Zoe's really getting the hang of her stander and is using her hands to roll the stander around. She doesn't have it all down yet, and there's still some work to be done, but it's cool to see her moving like that. The stander, and movement in general will help her with both physical and mental development so this is a great thing. We recently saw a video of a young boy, Zach, with spina bifida who's great uncle had built a very small, very effective "wheelchair" out of bumbo. Anyway, I found Zach's Mom on facebook and we now have the contact info to see about getting Zoe one of these. I've included the link to the news story we saw, very uplifting to see things like this.
Zoe's also working on a new trick. Her PT, Lynn, has Zoe working on sitting up from laying on her back. It takes a little work, but again, I'd challenge anyone to sit up from a laying position without using your legs... not so easy. She basically anchors her at the hip and Zoe will "walk" herself up using her arm as support. It's a lot of work for Zoe right now, but that's how she'll get stronger, so she does it. Two things are guaranteed when Lynn comes to visit, the first, Zoe will nap and sleep very well that night. The second, anything that needs to "work itself out" will and a diaper change will surely follow. Lynn is so lucky to experience that EVERY time she's here. We're lucky to have Lynn coming to the house once a week to work out lil stink bomb.
One last thing about Zoe, she's learned what can only be described as "The Look." We don't know where she got it from, but it's a chin tuck and look up thing that is super cute, but she knows it.... oh she is gonna be a handful!!!!
