Two Days

I can't believe it's almost time to go home.  Four weeks is a long time to be away, and in some respects, I feel like we've been here the time has flown by.

Here's some more progress from our little super star:

* Today, for the first time, she walked in a straight line by herself.  Seems so simple.  There's so much we take for granted.  But for her, these are huge things.  Sergio had her and she walked right to Aaron when prompted (about 6 ft. away).  Sergio was thrilled.  Me too!

* Hands and arms are still so much more relaxed.

* Her overall body is more relaxed.  I can't believe it.  I know there's still spunk in her, but she's so much calmer.

* ummmm, I had more things on my list, but I'm tired now and can't think.

I'm proud of her.  They are small accomplishments, but also really BIG!  I'm do have this fear that people won't see the change and think we are wasting our time, but then I remember that that's just lame.  And I get over it.  Just Thursday and Friday left.
