Not only has Claire been working on standing, holding a crawling position, & sitting, she has also been spending lots of time in her therapy tub "swimming," kicking, & moving herself around as best as she can! It is so cute to see her kicking her little crossed legs and moving her whole body in the process. She has the most determined little look on her face as she swims! She takes her workouts VERY seriously, and ummm, I have no f'ing clue WHERE she gets this (HA!), but she appears to be VERY competitive.

So, when we took her out to her therapy tub yesterday, laid her down to change her into her swimsuit, and SHE STARTED KICKING WITH ANTICIPATION BEFORE EVEN GETTING INTO THE WATER (!!!!!!!!), we all could not believe it!!! This was the *first* time she had ever done this. This was the *first* time she ever knew what was coming & SHOWED US in her own little way! This might be the *FIRST* time she ever showed evidence of memory and/or connecting a location with an activity. My girl's got it goin' on, yo. OMG. Still in awe!!!
Oh, and to that doctor who oh-so-carelessly-and-emotionlessly told us, "Your daughter has no cognitive processing going on whatsoever" after viewing her "extremely abnormal" EEG & doing a 45 second test involving black/white pictures when she was 3 months old with no concern or sympathy for our crying/panic/shock/extreme sadness/hope/bigger-than-he-could-ever-even-imagine love for our daughter...
