Pushing Up

Vera's hands have become stronger. She is now about to push her body up until they are fully straightened.

Through weight management, we have kept her weight the same while she grows in length. She was off the charts for a while, but now she is currently at 100th percentile on the Trisomy 18 weight chart - 25lbs at 3yrs 3mths. I believe this has enabled her to grow out nicely, and also helped her remain active and bear her own weight more comfortably.

Vera at her smiley best.
