Above is a video smiply of my dad eating, Joseph cracking up laughing, and Emerson running and saying mommy! <3 Melts my heart!
This above video is Emerson dancing on her bubby's rocking chair. Her daddy is also fussing at her to sit down and what does my precious baby do..... well you saw it, she puts her chin to her shoulder and then begins waving and smiling at us. Again melts my heart!
And the last and final above video is simply of Emerson answering and jibber jabbering while "on" the phone. :)
So now that I have discussed me being sad, let me tell you how Ms. Emerson has been doing. Actually she has been doing WONDERFUL! She is beginging to hold herself up with her arms while holding her head, it's not for long but it's a start.
Emerson is also doing really well with drinking liquids and will soon be getting another swallow study so that we can safely begin giving her liquids at home. Also too Emerson is begining to eat size 3 baby food, the ones with the chunks of food in it, because she's showing some signs of chewing. Right now it's just being done with speech therapy but it's a step in the right direction and we couldn't be happier. Also too Emerson is being put more and more in her stander and doing well with it. She pushes with her feet but that's really all she does in the stander because from not putting weight on her legs for almost 6 months now she has no strength in her legs, so that's what were working on and she is doing well.

Also too today December 7th Emerson was in PT and we all noticed that her cheeks were really red, so we got a thermometer and took her temperture, she had 103.6 and with a urinalysis, chest x-ray, bloodwork, and mucus swab Emerson only has an ear infection. Thank you God! Yes I know ear infections hurt and I am sad that my poor baby has to endure yet another ear infection but am just so thankful that that's all it was and we didn't have to get admitted for RSV or pneumonia.
Last but definitly NOT least, infact to me it is the best I have finally gotten on video my precious baby girl smiling. And please please excuse my annoying voice, but she loves it so I have to do the voice, lol. Enjoy! I do all the time.
