Molly, my cute five-month old has an extra chromosome (aka Down syndrome) ..remember? If not, here's her story. Today was her first official day of physical therapy at Hope Haven Children's Clinic & Family Center. Yes, we've been working with them since she was born, but mostly at-home therapy. Today we became "regulars", as we will begin attending therapy sessions every other Wednesday... this morning they referred to my tiny one as a "superstar".
Kris, our awesome therapist, said she was thrilled with how well Molly was progressing. She was impressed with her muscle tone and said she was making great strides at holding herself up! She gave us some new exercises to do at home to continue on the right track and Maggie had a great time playing with all the fun toys, while her little sister got a workout. We even got to see Molly's future boyfriend, Ben and his mom Sarah. (I'll save that cool story for another day!)
It was a great morning and I'm already looking forward to going back. The only bad part? I thought for sure that she would take a good, long nap this afternoon....and she hasn't yet! Oh well, maybe it just means an early bed time! (Fingers crossed!)
