**Standing alone!** Eleanor knocked our socks off when I placed her hands on this bar & she stood up completely on her own! Amazing! She just stood…right…up! 🤯 (She needs to learn to lower herself down slowly though. 😬 But she has the same problem with sitting independently)
Eleanor has food texture issues. She only eats pureed foods so far. She can take very little texture in her pureed foods before gagging. One issue is that she doesnt chew.

We were wonderingContinue reading “Activating her toy!”
