Physical Therapy

PT went very well! Ellie is a champ! She's still cheating at some things, she'll act like she wants to knock over the tower of cups, then stop, then roll on her back like she doesn't want to play anymore, and then knock them over because she's closer now. Karen the PT called her a turkey lol. I called her a cheater. Anyway, the step stool we bought her (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000JVZWY4) works like a dream. She has to put her legs side by side underneath it to use it as a table. So we do that and make her look up and down while maintaining balance. She also has to sit on it, keeping her feet flat while looking up and down. We also get her to kneel at it for a minute or so. We still have to have her lay over the boppy and reach for things. It seems to be working though because we've been practicing those moves for the last 2 days and she acts like she doesn't even need to do them. Her balance is amazing! She was even up on all fours rocking again for a bit. She hadn't done that in a while. I was so happy!
