This picture cracks me up.
Elise was being brave and figured out how to lay down in the water all by herself. She's never done that before so I was super excited! Sometimes I feel like the people on The Croods when the "new stuff" is totally awesome. This is new and it is totally awesome; I LOVE new things!
Her face was like this the ENTIRE time as she very, very slowly laid down.
It was really slow.
I kept thinking this was a great abdominal workout for her (she has very low muscle tone, so we are always trying to find ways to build muscle strength).
Elise is so stinkin' cute though! She was giggling almost like she couldn't stand the feel of the water, kind of like when you are being tickled, then she scrunched her eyes super tight and had her mouth open the whole time. I kept laughing to myself because I have never seen anything like it before. It was so funny. She experiences things way different than other kiddos and I enjoy the ride along with her.
Elise also figured out how to get up by herself AND climb out of the bathtub. This just shows that her motor planning is improving, something the therapist and me have commented on the last few weeks. Hooray for new things!
I LOVE being a mom to my 5 kids; one with special needs. There is no greater joy than being a parent! I love each one individually but this blog will mostly focus on our daughter with special needs and our journey with her. Thanks for reading!
