While I'm on the topic of odd behavior and new discoveries, I had another good laugh while giving Rose a bath last night. Rose has recently moved out of the infant tub and is now taking baths in the adult tub since she has mastered sitting up. I only fill the water up high enough to barely cover her thighs. It seems easier to manage a slippery baby this way. She loves baths, loves to play with a bath toy while I sponge her down. Last night, she was sitting completely bent over holding her toy keys under the water in front of her. No matter what I did, I couldn't get her to sit upright so I could wash her belly. She was intent on bending forward. Thinking she was just tired, I moved on to washing other parts of her body. Suddenly, in one motion, she dunked her face under the water and then shot straight up. She turned to look at me with shock and awe as she blinked back the water dripping down her face. Like Chase's head in the video I posted last week, I think Rose was trying to explore the water with her mouth. All that effort just to get her face into the bath water. Funny little lady.
Rose had a PT appointment this morning. She managed to walk out without a TOT collar. The report was similar to last time. She is making good progress, but her neck is still tight. Her social skills and motor skills are right on track, but we need to keep working on the neck and shoulder strength. Here are some pictures from the session (check out all that hair!).
