Elsa is now 33 months and really starting to move on her feet. Here she is taking steps with her PT with really limited help/support. We recently advocated for two times a week of PT, to make the most of her Early Intervention support from the state before she ages out at year’s end. Elsa was really showing promise in PT, and we’re so glad we doubled down on her progress. It is now her favorite therapy.

Her PT had the awesome suggestion of putting bells on Elsa’s feet, to motivate her to step. It’s not only cute, but working! We were so hoping that she’d be somewhat on her feet by the time she started preschool in January. Now that doesn’t seem like such an out-there dream. Here is Elsa in action:

    Thanks Jessie! I was really getting discouraged for a while. She looked great in sitting, but not standing. Then one day, she looked awesome going from sitting-to-standing from the lowest step on the staircase. And she’s been on a roll ever since! Caroline is an absolute doll. What a sweet face and spirit. I remember when Elsa was age 1. I had so many questions. Getting her big and strong was our primary focus then. Look forward to your next post!!

    Liliana, your little one will get there! Sitting alone is a huge step forward. We were there for a long time before standing and walking came along. Hang in there!

    I can’t stop watching this- every time I say “No!” when it’s over- I wish the video kept going. She’s so pretty and so proud of herself. What a blessing. Congrats on the accomplishment!

    I felt the same as Kate…didn’t want the video to end, nor did my daughter Phia. She loves watching the other kids and we’ve replayed many times. We want more Elsa with bells! =). Way to go Elsa and did she wave to you? We saw a wave…Phia waved back…and we are cheering you on. Way to go!

    Love you, Aunt Betsy
