Katie- 17 months old


Katie is doing great!! She is drinking better, she started crawling, she started standing independently, and she is talking a lot. Katie sings "Row, Row Your Boat," well, at least the first line. She will cover her face (using two hands more often) and will say, "Where's Katie?" I thank God because with each update the prayers are sent up with renewed strength and almost immediately after the update Katie is doing a new trick!! Katie is called a "Super Star" by her therapists, they are amazed by her communication skills and her strong personality! I find it amusing that Katie seems to be revisiting all her missed milestones, she started crawling and rolling and laying on the ground and kicking her feet.

Katie's therapists says that her first steps are coming soon! Her physical therapist works on developing strength in her hips and left leg. Katie cries and screams through most of her physical therapy appts, but this is when she works the hardest! Pray for strength for her little legs and that she walks when the time is right!
Pray for Katie's vision and qualifying for continued vision therapies and God Willing some additional vision therapies! Pray for her brain and continued rewiring and repair! Pray for continuing speech development and our ability to work with her very strong personality!!

Thank you!! I look forward to her new "tricks"!!
