Catherine made some progress today. It might not seem like a big deal, but to us and to Catherine it is! Her physical therapist recommended that I take Catherine's socks off and bring her feet to her hands. She says it is very important developmentally that she know where her feet are. This will help her with rolling, crawling, and eventually walking. It's also good for gaining strength in her abdomen which is weak. So I have been doing this. I would bring her feet up and she would grab them but was not able to hold on to them very long and she would not bring them up herself.

But today, after I helped her play with her feet, she started bringing them up herself and holding on to them for awhile! She even tried to put them in her mouth, which I reminded her wasn't very ladylike.

Taking a break

On Thursday, Catherine will be 11 months old!

Yay, Catherine! She is so cute! And quite proud of herself, I think :)

Baby tricks -- very good! Her eyes are looking better, too, I think. I can't remember if my Joshua's eyes looked better right away -- seems to me it might have taken a little while.
