This is a shot of Emily from a few weeks ago. She was working on drinking from a cup with her speech therapist. It is not just plain liquid, because she hasn't quite figured out how to handle thin liquid. We use an assortment of things - this time, I believe it was: applesauce, formula and cool whip. She gets pretty messy, but she did a great job with it. If you notice Emily's position, her arms and legs are extended out - she does that when she gets excited (she really likes cool whip and who can blame her?).Here she is working with her Occupational Therapist. They were working on pulling toys. Emily really liked that little truck. It has beads in it so it makes noise when it moves.
Can you tell she was enjoying herself? She always has fun with her OT. Whenever Emily is seated in front of her like this, she tends to look up at her as if to say "Did you see what I just did?". It is adorable!
Here she is playing with the truck by herself in her stander. If you look closely, you can see her tongue sticking out a little bit. She is making her "happy click" (she clicks her tongue against the roof of her mouth to let you know she likes something).
It is so nice when she enjoys herself while doing therapy!
