Her other challenge she is conquering is walking! Everyday she walks more and more and is more stable. Her newest game is to stand and touch her toes, reach up high, and
turn around. It’s a very exciting time for her…and my back! She walks independently throughout the house but needs to work on outside and distance walking.
As far as services, those too have changed and grown! She is now attending a county special education preschool three times a week where she receives speech therapy and adaptive PE. We are also waiting
for an augmentative device evaluation. She also receives physical, occupational, aquatic and hippotherapy all once per week. Michaela enjoys her school and therapies but she also likes her
downtime! She loves to watch her videos (Elmo, Big Bird, Barney, Teletubbies, and Blue) and her new favorite—The Wiggles! She loves the songs and learning the dance and hand movements that go with
them! She also likes playing with her toy phone, stacking cups, balls, books, and just exploring around the house. She also likes to swing, but most of all she likes interaction! She’s content
playing alone, but engage her and then she’s really having fun. I await with great anticipation how she will react to and interact with her new baby brother or sister due to arrive in March!
