I know this must seem completely hypocritical to share these pictures after my last post, but I was just looking through our shots from September and mainly wanted to add these for my memory. She loves Stan :).
The start of the summer, Anniston was fairly content sitting in her float playing with her toys, but as the temperatures began to drop (to like 90) the beginning of September and we began to swim more (would recommend...it was so nice!), Anniston took to the water like a champ! All she wanted to do was kick kick kick all across the pool, and it was incredibly difficult to keep her in the float at this point since she was bent only on crawling out. I love that she has taken to "swimming" so well.
Aren't they cute?! :)
Update, again for my memory: She is doing better and better pulling to stand (especially since we found her some smaller shoes), and she wants to cruise a little bit...kind of hard since she really needs to hold on with her right hand. Had an EEG recently that turned out pretty well, so she's coming off of one of her seizure meds (praise the Lord) and is almost down to one along with her calcium supplement that she really doesn't even need. [It's pretty crazy how low her calcium dosage is (.3 ml 2x a day), and she has had blood work showing that her levels are normal...but we are just thankful that they are normal.] Had the best day at therapy today. She showed them how easily she pulls up to her knees and initiates steps. We have also been seeing more hands and knees (crawling) positions lately. She is a testimony for sure, and I am thankful for this open door to share Christ's mercy. Love her...
To bring us back to the season at hand...I'm decorating right now, and I had a big bowl of chili tonight. Mmm...full on fall :).
