She is now pulling to stand, cruising, has taken a couple steps and I even saw her crawl yesterday at school. Some days I stay for a PT session to see what she's working on which is so great. She is also starting to "talk" a lot more with making different sounds and able to vocalize when prompted. We work hard every day in the morning on our new skills then she will typically nap an hour before lunch then school in the afternoon. Once a week we have horse therapy which she is still enjoying! She stands, rides backward and she got to trot this week which she loved! When I tell her she will see Prince Charming she is so very happy.
This fall we visited a few different farms. We did all kinds of activities and got to enjoy three petting zoos. We carved three pumpkins for Halloween, a Jake the Pirate, Doc McStuffins (both Disney), a traditional, and then Annabelle painted her pumpkin from school. For Halloween Annabelle dressed as a pirate princess. We went trick or treating the day before at the Center for Disability with our friend Riley and his mom then she got to trick or treat at school in her kidwalk walker. After school we took her around the neighborhood in her wagon. She had a button she could press and it said "trick or treat". She liked having a voice and even signed thank you to everyone. She ended up with two huge bags of candy at the end and I felt bad she could only have the pretzels and toys but since she has never eaten candy I guess she doesn't know any better. Brian took it all to work to share, I'm sure his coworkers enjoyed all the candy.
We are planning on heading to Erie for Thanksgiving then we will be celebrating Annabelle's 3rd birthday and Christmas. I'm sure I will have 100's of pics to post for each. Hope all is well with everyone!!
We had a little photo shoot in the neighbors yard, I took the pics and my girlfriend and her son made Annabelle smile :)
