This is kind of funny, in an ironic kind of way.
Until tomorrow, Millie is, technically, on time for her physical development.
She is crawling, climbing and cruising, thus meeting all of the gross motor skills appropriate for an 18-month-old.
It won't last, though, as she turns 19 months old tomorrow.
And once that happens, she will again, technically, be behind because she isn't walking.
But for the past week, we've been celebrating just how far she's come.
And we will continue to celebrate that, as she has responded very, very well to her therapies in the last eight months.
She even has been throwing around a few new words in recent weeks: num-num, hi, bye and done. We might only hear them once or maybe once every week or so, but they are there, serving as proof that her vocabulary is expanding.
She now helps dress herself and is starting to finally use some of the sign language that we began working with months and months ago.
She's doing really great.
We all are, I think.
