In my previous post, I mentioned that one of the things the NICU’s occupational therapist wanted T to work on was her inability to bang objects together or on a table.
Well, wouldn’t you know it, today T started to do it! It’s like it just clicked and now she loves banging around her toys and I LOVE watching her do it. It’s so funny to see T realize her new talent as she moves her toys up and down, faster and faster, hitting her table each time. She’s so happy perfecting her new trick.
I was a bit shocked, as was she, when it happened as T does have muscle tone issues. The high muscle tone makes her really stiff and so that she can’t really raise up her arms. So, when T grabbed her rattle and started banging it up and down on her table we were both quite surprised.
She did it! She did it! Yay T, way to go! Most parents dread the constant banging, but I say, bring it on!
