Yesterday was Della's first birthday. I remember Archer's first year going by so fast. I think because so much has happened to her, it seems like Della has lived enough to fill 5 years. I'll have to admit that I was a little more emotional than I had anticipated. It is hard to think back to the times when we weren't sure of she would see her first birthday. We are so thankful that she is in our family.
We are trying to force Della to stand. This consists of her locking her knees and then putting as much weight as she can on whoever is helping her. Needless to say, she's not that into it. She still isn't sitting up or crawling, which is frustrating. The goal we set for physical therapy was to have her walking by 18 months. If this is the progress she has made in the last 6 months of therapy, I am not sure if walking will be accomplished in the next 6 months.
