I can do that!

Yesterday was Eliana’s annual evaluation for early intervention services, and she was in rare form, bubbly and full of energy and charming the evaluators. They run through a series of tests, all the while asking me questions, everything from “How does she sleep?” to “Can she identify 5, 10, 15 objects in a book?” And then, without skipping a beat, they pull all of this information together, evaluate it, and determine where Eliana falls on the bell curve in five developmental areas, all while continuously saying, “She’s so darn cute!”

At one point one therapist asked, “Can she crawl?” plopping her down on hands and knees. “Yup,” Eliana must have been thinking, because she immediately crawled right over to me! I said she must be lying. She’s never done anything more than get up on her hands and knees, at which point we’d help her move her hands and feet to give her the idea of crawling.

What else can this kid do?

(In case you were wondering, this post’s title is brought to you by A Chorus Line … “I watched my sis go pitterpat. Said I can do that.”)

    Fun that she “put on a show”! Never underestimate her….well, I guess that wasn’t very bright because I’m sure you all marvel at her accomplishments EVERY DAY! I’m sure it was wonderful for the evaluators because they probably don’t always see kids who are so darn cute! You go Eliana….give them the BEST show ever!

    …and while she’s crawling, she’s “listening” to some Sousa march in her head. I bet there’s more going on in there than we can know!
