Cate and Charlie are doing great! They have had their ups and downs over the past few months with a few minor viruses, teething, and typical 2 year old stuff.
Charlie has been spending more time with “friends” and she is such a sweet little girl. She is happy to play independently but she loves interacting with other kids her age and older. She shares, plays games, and fits in so well in unknown situations. Sometimes I wonder since we stay at home most of the time how she will do with new people and new places and I am one proud mom!
Cate overall has been doing exceptional! During the time of year where the flu is everywhere, viruses, strep, and other sicknesses I am always concerned that we will repeat last winter when she was sick for over a month. She had several seizures and could not progress in her program. This winter she has been so much healthier. Even when the girls have gotten a virus Cate’s symptoms have been minor and have not slowed her down much at all. She has NOT had a seizure since October! And that one was stopped within 3 minutes using her seizure protocol of masking (see oxygen enrichment post). Cate has been working hard all winter long!
Cate has been crawling so well on the smooth surfaces (wood floor, gym mat, tile) that I have started putting her on a short nap rug. Although you have more traction on your arms and legs on carpet it is much harder to crawl; your stomach is “stuck” to the ground. Gravity is not always Cate’s friend. She can crawl 3-4 feet on the carpet before she has to take a rest, but she does it! We are very proud of her and do our best to encourage her every day. Some days are better than others.
