Murphy's Law.... Or Something Like That

Clare had an awesome therapy session this morning. Of course, we have just been approved for additional services, so Clare will have to prove us wrong! We are meeting Clare's new PT in a couple weeks (she is the same PT who evaluated Clare this summer, so I know that Clare and we like her, which is a must), and next week, Clare is going to have her first session in the sensory room.

Today Clare worked for over an hour - almost nonstop. One brief crying break when Clare got scared she was going to fall over. Clare worked on the ball, did weight bearing on her arms, all kinds of fancy things that she usually resists doing. And the words she repeated! Absolutely clear, here's the list from today alone - apple, pretty, oh no kitty, mouth, moo, neigh, my. This afternoon, she wanted a drink from my water bottle, so I said to her, "Clare, water?" She looked at me and said, "Water." I almost fell over. I ask Clare where her nose and eyes are and she will point to them. Her favorite is to show you where her teeth are. So I have to brag about her accomplishments today. Clare constantly amazes me with how fast she can learn.

Yay, Clare! The words will come fast and furious now. Erik said "socks" today before he dropped them into a full bathtub. I hugged him tight!
