It's the little things that in the world of special needs and disabilities are so stinkin' huge. For example, this month Angela started standing up with a little support under her arms or by holding on to our fingers. For most kids at just a few months old the stand up in the lap game starts -- but for kids like Angela, many never are able to stand. So needless to say this is huge stuff. Standing leads to taking steps and taking steps leads to walking. Very exciting.
This week we also purchased this new chair seen in these photos. Again, for most parents a chair is a chair -- it makes life easier but it's not really life altering. This chair for Angela is a gift from God. There are no straps and metal bars, yet it supports her so well.
Usually anything we put her in requires the adjustment of at least on thing like a seatbelt or clicking tight her lateral supports. This chair allows us a spot to stick her where she is not laying on the floor and is in a more age appropriate position to do things like play and socialize. So huge!
These pictures make me smile from ear to ear. This little girl is so precious. Her spirit is amazing -- she is so spunky but at the same time a little love bug. She is growing and developing in way I'm not even sure I thought were possible at first. So thankful that God gave us this beautiful little girl -- to be apart of her life to both push and love so deeply!
