I just wanted to share about Peyton's day yesterday. She was so focused, and so involved for the entire afternoon, and she was really using her muscles!
We had her involved in a variety of sensory activities...."ice skating" with her feet in shaving cream (wow! she was really moving her leg muscles!) and fingerpainting while in the stander. Again, she was really engaged in doing her work with her hands this time. Finally, during snack, she chose a "banana split" lollipop, and was independently holding it and raising it to her mouth. Lots of language for the afternoon as well. Way to go, Peyton! I am continually impressed by her skills and desire to show us what she can do!
I am blessed to be the Aunt of Peyton. She has changed my life in so many ways. I will fight, to save her life and the lives of so many others with SMA.
