Sitting...







Kendall's been sitting up for a while now. BUT yesterday, she sat for around 2 and a half minutes!



She started out for about a minute and a half without anything. Then we placed the drum between her legs to give her some help. She proceeded to look around and hang out for another minute.


I am so proud. I can't help but think this is just the beginning. This year, I know she is going to have some amazing developments. Her vision is improving every day. Her trunk control is getting stronger by the minute. Her personality is shining. She is talking so much and beginning to communicate. Its like I can't wait to wake up every morning to see what else she is going to do!


Days like this almost make me forget about all her other issues!


But, speaking of her issues, her blood pressure is high. She has also been retaining urine for over 14 hours at a time. We are adding Nephrology to our list now. Her cholesterol and potassium levels have been re-drawn so we can make sure they were correct. I am waiting for those results. If the triglycerides are too high we are changing up her diet. And praying seizures don't increase. Her sugars have been all over the board too. But overall, she seems to be feeling OK!

Woo Hoo! Way to go Kendall. It is a whole different world when they start to sit up. Caleb was 15 months old before he could sit up and it made all the difference. So excited for her...and you!

Very proud moment for sure, for the whole family!! The world from that perspective is so much more interesting for Kendall. It seemed like for us once Oia learned to do one 'big' thing, like sitting, the flood gates slowly began to open so to speak. Strength to do one thing will lead to strength to do another...and so on. Hugs to you all and again, thanks for sharing with us.
