Our little Lainey bear is 19 months! And guess what...we have a walker!! Our precious girl is now walking all over the place. We are so proud of her. She started taking her first steps around 18 months. She would take a couple super fast steps and basically fall forward into whoever was ready to catch her. Each week she got more balanced and confident. She still falls all the time but she is so determined and persistent. She wants to go go go. Today at the library I was trying to renew my card and check out our books and baby girl was going in all directions and trying to escape out of the library.
She is the best sleeper still. She falls asleep within minutes of laying her down and rarely ever makes a peep. I am incredibly thankful for this. Her nap is around noon and she usually sleeps for 2 hours. I am loving the sleep now because I know when baby brother comes it will be back to middle-of-the-night feedings and exhaustion.
Lainey still does 3 therapies a week - PT, OT, and ST all on Thursdays. It is a busy day but she does great.
I often think how this year is sooooo much better than her first year. That year was so hard. Endless doctor appointments, constant anxiety, waiting on numerous test results, etc. There are still hard days, but overall things have gotten much better and we can enjoy her so much more. Who knows what the future will bring but we are very thankful for all the progress our sweet girl has made.
