I forgot to mention Amanda's mobility. She still scoots and crab crawls to get everywhere and is incredibly fast. Lately she has been pulling up more to furniture, cruising the coffee table (knocking everything off).
Yesterday she held my fingers and walked 10 steps, all on her tip toes. It seemed to wear her out, she does not have a lot of stamina for walking, and her legs are so thin, I know she needs to develop more muscle. Her ankles and especially Achilles tendons are very rigid, not the loose joints I am used to with Meghan and Kara. We definitely need to get Amanda seen by an orthopedic doctor as well. She also desperately needs a PT.
I just loved her holding my fingers and walking, it was the first time she has for me, I think she has done it previously with her caregivers. Yesterday she climbed off the sofa on her own twice. She knows how, but does not attempt it very often. I am happy to see that progress.
