Linden's 9 month IFSP meeting

Linden is in a state run early intervention program called Early Steps. She qualifies because she has Down Syndrome and Amniotic Band Syndrome (what caused her little hand). Every month, Mrs. Claire comes over and checks her out to see if she's developing physically and cognitively as she should.

Last month we made the following goals for Linden at 9 months:

  • Sitting for short periods of time
  • Reaching to grab a small toy from someone else's hand
  • Reaching out with her left hand (smaller hand)
  • Bearing weight on her legs

As of today, 9.5 months, she has met all of her 9 month goals!!! I am so proud of my sweet girl. Even though, her medicines make her very tired and she's just plain worn out, she is still meeting her goals and surprising her teacher! She sat on her own for 8 seconds today and that's a record for her. See, when she sits, she either throws herself back or dives down to her feet.

Here's Linden standing up on Daddy's lap.
