Big birthday milestone!!!!!!

June 30th, 2011

This morning, Verity’s physical therapist and I agreed that she is very, very close to getting herself to a sitting position.

She is strong enough to do it, and she needs hardly any prompts from us, but she’s just not putting all the pieces together by herself.

I guessed that within the month, at some point, we’d find her sitting, and ask each other, “Did you put her into a sitting position?”  And find out that she’d done it herself!

At the end of her therapy session, she was ready for a nap, so Joseph took her up to bed while I waited for Miss Karen to write up her notes.

After Miss Karen left, I asked Joseph to go up and bring something down from the girls’ room.  He came down talking about how cute she was sitting there in her crib laughing and jabbering.

SITTING???  Did you say SITTING???!!!

“Joseph, when you took her up to bed, did you lay her down or put her into a sitting position??”

“I laid her down.”

…taking the stairs two at a time…

Behold!!  The child SITS!!!!!

After six months of working on belly to sitting…

She SITS!!!!!  SHE SITS!!!!!!!!!!

Share it!

    I remember that happening with Christopher!  Next thing you know, she’ll be springing up in the middle of the floor!  Is there anything more exciting than watching your child master things they have worked hard to do??  We would often startle poor Christopher with our shouts of celebration:)

    I popped on over from Becky’s place and I’m so glad I did! I am the mama of 5 children, two of whom have Down syndrome (a 21yo son and a 19yo daughter.) Looking at the photos of your little Verity brought back so many memories of my Millen at that age. Babies with Down syndrome are truly just the most darling little things aren’t they? Millen is 19yo now and oh-so-mature and grown up…. she plays the piano, and dances ballet. She knits and does exercise videos and adores the Wiggles;-} Her father jokes that she’s not handicapped.. she’s a higher life form♥  She has added so much to our family, I can’t even express! May the Lord bless you as you move forward in your adoption of Katie… I have to say that I am a bit envious of you!

    She looks like she’s laughing at the funny joke she played on you — sitting up when you weren’t looking.  :D
