Therapy Day!!

It's Tuesday you know what that means!! Okay, well if you don't now...Tuesday is therapy day!!

Lauren's teacher comes over for about an hour and Lauren can work on sitting up (that's our goal right now), feeding issues, etc... Lisa, the teacher, recommended Hip Helpers for Lauren which we should be getting in the mail very soon!

Check out www.hiphelpers.com for more info. I really think Lauren will be able to get up onto all fours much easier with hip helpers. She can push straight up on her arms but she can't get her legs close enough together. Hip helpers will keep her hips closer together and hopefully make it easier for her to pop up onto all fours!

Lots of kids with Down syndrome use hip helpers as a therapy tool.

Also, Lauren went to her helmet doctor yesterday. We might only need to use the helmet for 6 more weeks!! Not that she seems to mind it too much. But I'm more than ready to see her hair more often, especially since it's growing in so nicely. I can almost do a little pony tail!


  1. She is too cute - and looking so much bigger these days! Big enough to be on all fours already??

  2. She'll be 8 months on the 12th, can you believe it?!

  3. She is so stinking cute in this photo! Love those blue eyes.

  4. Thank you! My husband and I both have brown eyes so her blue ones are a nice surprise!

  5. 8 months? No. Only 3 ;) hehe - time flies!
