Pointer Fingers and Personal Connections

It’s been since the last surgery that we noticed Reese pulling out that left pointer finger. It’s one of the many things we take for granted as parents. Your child just figured it out, naturally. One day they can separate their finger from their hand and voila! They can manipulate things. Reese has been sneaky, clever really, in how she has gotten around her limitation. But now she has achieved a new milestone because therapy saw the repeated use of that finger and that means it’s no longer an accident. Add that to all her intentional eye contact and expressive nonverbal communication and we have had a monumental two weeks. Hooray!

Bring on the Cheerios and book pages because this girl soon could be making a run at ET.
