Wonder Twin Powers Activate!

October 21, 2015 at 7:07 AM 2 comments

Wonder TwinsEliana has lots of contact with people – in her own way.  There are the phlebotomists, receptionists and other blood work patients twice a week, four therapists, three or four nurses a week, parents and kids at the bus stop, various family visits and the miscellaneous folks she’ll run into if she’s out with us.

You’ll notice there aren’t a whole lot of other two-year olds in that list, but on those occasions where she is around a little kid she seems more aware than ever that she might be missing out on something.  The thing about kids her age is that they’re just so…so…icky.  I get the heebie-jeebies just thinking about putting her immune system (and the rest of her) in a room with a bunch of ooky toddlers and their germs.  She’s definitely coming along – the doctors have cut back on another one of her anti-ick medications recently – but we’re still trying to figure out how to work her into some social situations with a minimal infection risk.

In the meantime, though, she’s finally discovered the joy of mirrors.  She’s messed with them a little in the past, but all of a sudden in the past week or two she’s really figured out how to interact with that other little kid on the other side.  Not only does she pose (this is her best “Wonder Twins and Kitty” pose), but she talks, too.  Vocabulary in this one is a little limited, but at least she’s friendly…

Stay tuned for posts on some other awesome milestone-type achievements.

    What fun that she has “discovered” her twin sister! Our kids LOVED to talk to the other kid in the mirror. Another step toward normalcy. Congrats! Looking forward to seeing the Lerners dressed in their Halloween costumes!
