This picture is proof of our girl growing up as she practices pulling up. She had physical therapy today, and was pulling up with ease at the edge of the couch, and also for the first time on Monday, I walked into her room to get in her in the morning, only to find her standing inside her crib looking at me with a huge smile on her face. I am so proud that she is learning so much. We even began encouraging her to start cruising today. We took the couch cushions off and turned our living room into a jungle-gym. It was so much fun and Charlotte had a blast crawling all around and pulling up. The therapist was very impressed by how much her balance has improved in the past 2 weeks alone.
Finally, I just wanted to let everyone know that Chris' chromosome results came back with the same change on the 13th chromosome that Charlotte has. (They are alike in more ways than we even know ;-) So, this means that the "change" that they found cannot be responsible for Charlotte's brain abnormality. Chris is just too "normal" to have the same one... I can't believe I just said that! Anyway, off to the geneticist we go tomorrow to sort what this all means out with her once again. We are hoping for good news, and maybe, just maybe, hoping to hear her say that this was just a fluke...?? And, more importantly, won't happen agian... However, we must also prepare ourselves to hear that she doesn't know why, and for her to say that it can happen again. Anyway, I'll update you later about how our appointment goes tomorrow. Have a great evening!
