Well, sort of 😉 She can’t sit up by herself, but if we put her in sitting position she can steady herself and stay there for 5 minutes or more! Very exciting.

Sabrina is happy and healthy and has also been seizure free (touching wood) for the past 8 months. She has had her ears checked and it turns out she only has a mild hearing loss in one ear which is not a cause for any concern.  Laughter is becoming more of a daily thing rather than a weekly/monthly/who knows when kind of thing. Her giggle is the best sound in the world. She is becoming more interested in her toys and will shake her rattles and bash things to make loud sounds. She also seems to enjoy throwing all her toys out of her high chair.

Feeding is where she is misbehaving lately. Bottle time can take anywhere from 5 mins to 1 hour and is extremely messy. She will collect the milk in her mouth and then slop it out everywhere. We are going through an average of 3 bibs per feed….. Solids are once a day and they can be tricky too but I keep on trying. Having a weigh tomorrow – wish us luck….Sabrina sitting

    Rochelle is an adult now. When she was Sabrina’s age, her therapists thought she was naughty at meal time too. It took me a long time to figure out that her hypotonia and dental abnormalities made chewing and swallowing difficult. Rochelle likes eating and meal time, but each meal still takes an hour or more, and she holds food in her mouth, if she’s full or can’t chew it. Eating for children with WHS is tricky. It requires small amounts, right temperature, texture, consistency, and can’t be rushed. Good luck!
