Updates on Victoria Lily Joy van den Broek, born 120705.

Tuesday, March 07, 2006


the physio said that Victoria is doing brilliantly. What we have to do now is when she drops her toys when she is sitting, let her try and pick them up - especially when they are off to one side so that she will use her hands to keep herself from falling flat and will have a half-way base from which to correct her position again.
She demonstrated her ability to use rolling over as a technique for reaching things which are just out of reach. I think she's quite bright really. I even nearly got her to laugh this afternoon in one of those throwing-in-the-air-and-saying-boo-on-the-way-down sessions which we mothers like to indulge in!
It could be that next time we see the physio (next Tuesday, at hydro) we will recieve some special boots which have insoles - these will make sure that when Victoria is in a standing position she will have the necessary support for her feet and ankles.
