I am so proud of her. Maybe she's just trying to get her momma motivated to get up and going too!
Love my girl!
In the whole scheme of things I feel like she's doing quite well. As a parent of a child with Down syndrome, I am fully aware that she will hit her milestones, just like her brother and sister did, but in her own time. But...and there is a big BUT, I think because of the help we are getting from her physical and developmental therapists, she's more motivated and she's being driven to reach those milestones sooner than rather later. And for that, I thank them for their dedication to Lillian and for taking the time in learning who she is and how she works.
Right below, you can see the differences in the time frame for walking. I also, added when Charlie and Katie started walking for reference.
Typical Children Average: 11 months Range: 8 - 18 months
*Charlie 10 months
*Katie 12 months
Children w/Down syndrome Average: 24 months Range: 12 - 65 months
I think for sure Lillian will be walking soon. Well, at least I think she will.
