This past weekend we were practicing with her by separating the two ottomans, and then seeing if she could take a step from one to the other. We would slowly separate them more and more, little by little. She would take maybe one or two steps, here and there, and would wobble and fall down pretty quickly.
And then today! Totally caught me off guard. To say I am just a little bit excited is an understatement. She has been working so, so hard the last few weeks. I am amazed at her determination, strength and will to give it her all. Her neurologist and occupational therapist guessed (when she was first being assessed for global developmental delays, long before we learned of her Cohen Syndrome) that she might walk by age two. She will turn two on May 2nd. Only time will tell. But either way. . . so, so proud of my Clara girl. And so very proud to be her mommy.
