Something New


Elizabeth is now able to sit on a big chair independently. This may seem like a small feat but for us it is huge. When we are out Elizabeth either sits in highchair or on our knee but now she can sit in her own chair and for short periods of time kneel on a chair to eat. Gone are the days of trying to pry her and her AFO's out of a highchair (the number of times I have had to ask a stranger to help is endless) and gone are the days of eating with one hand holding her up. Once again she wows us, way to go Elizabeth.

Way to Elizabeth!! I have had so much catching up to do with the blog. I have not only been slacking with ours but reading everyone else's as well.

So far 2009 has brought lots of runny noses around here, I'm hoping it clears up and stays away long enough for us to get together.

Wow, that's a true milestone. Max can do that too as of recently, and we are similarly thrilled. Yay, Elizabeth! Looking so grownup in that chair!

Congratulations to Elizabeth-- this is a big step for her! We're still in the supported chair stage, and while our son Connor's foot braces are much smaller than AFO's, it's still a big pain to get him out of the chair, especially when he straightens his legs out and goes stiff.

Horray Elizabeth! That's so great! I am so eager for this moment as I just had a major "me vs. the high chair" battle with her poor legs the other day myself!
