On a positive note, she made her physical therapist cry yesterday. We hadn't been there for 2 weeks and a lot had happened in that time. When Miss Kate saw her forward motion, shifting from quadruped to sitting in both directions, and pulling up to her knees, she got tears in her eyes because the hard work we have all put in has paid off. The motor delays she had when we started working with Miss Kate 4 months ago are gone and the torticollis is considerably better. We are very lucky to have such a great PT working with Raya. We're going to take a break for a month and then go back after she has her surgery just to make sure that she's still on the right track & then she'll be discharged.
Raya turned 8 months old last Saturday. At her checkup with the GI doctor on Monday, she weighed a whopping 17 lbs 8 oz! For comparison's sake, when Kaida was 8 months old, she weighed in at 12 lbs 12 oz and when Ashtyn was 1 year old she weighed 17 lbs 9 oz. No wonder Raya feels so huge to me! She just might be our first 20 lb 1 year old. :)
