These are Abbie’s nice soft hands. Exciting for two reasons: her hands are relaxed and in a good position, and the tone in her arms is low enough to allow her to keep her hands together easily. Again, this is something she could not easily do last month. She is also getting stronger, and sometimes I have to consciously remind myself that what she is doing easily now used to be impossible. The other day I was pulling her to a sitting position in bed and her head did not lag at all, she just pulled it right up with her body. When we were at the park last Saturday she was sitting between my legs facing out – after a while I noticed I just had my hands near her, to catch her “just in case”, but she was sitting up on her own.
