How Elizabeth Amazes Us

Elizabeth continues to amaze us every day and brings us so much joy. Her amazing spirit and outlook on life is what is so remarkable to us. Elizabeth rarely cries, pouts or has a temper tantrum, she is always singing, smiling and finds joy out of every experience. I think this is what we are most thankful for. Her perseverance, all of the normal milestones have provided a challenge for Elizabeth but she continues to persevere and will work until she can do what she wants. Nothing is a challenge for her in her mind. Her curiosity, she soaks up new information like a sponge and will remember the most intricate detail of anything. Her passion for life, she loves nature, animals and her friends (She just recently while going for a walk stopped to introduce herself to an ant and tell it is was nice to meet it). Lastly her endless energy, she never tires she is up to any challenge or activity everything for her is fun.
We are so blessed to have her in our lives. She makes the rough days better as she is such an easy going child who never lets anything bother her.

I just found your blog from a link. Has anyone suggested an OT eval for the walking? Maybe its a severe proprioreceptive/vestibular thing and not ataxia at all. Mine was relatively late to walk (18 months), needed orthotics for a year to help with balance (no cp diagnosed either), and then learned balance through that plus OT work about her body in space.
