Helen can sometimes find organization to be a challenge. Um, yeah.
If you have trouble “feeling” muscle control, using a cup can be tricky. Putting juice in a heavy coffee mug (instead of a plastic cup) helps.
Helen spent some time this afternoon carrying buckets of water to make mud. This is actually excellent therapy. Seriously.
This is Helen barefoot on the grass! Until just this month, she couldn’t tolerate the feel of it, at all. When she first tried to step on the grass, Matthew and I stood cheering her on. Matthew told me: Mom, I don’t think most families cheer on their 4-year-olds because they walked on the grass.
Matthew is determined to teach Helen to write her name. He probably will, too.
Have a great weekend!
