Physical Therapy

We had our first Early Intervention physical therapy session last week. It was great to finally be meeting the person who Piper and I will get to work with in helping Piper develop. She assessed Piper's abilities and gave us some activities to work on through out the day.

So now both my and Piper's day includes working on strengthening her neck muscles so she can hold up her head on her own.....
.........Working in the prayer position on her side and with my hands supporting her shoulders, so she can develop her arm muscles so she will be able to find and hold her hands together and ultimately hold her toys.....

She even showed me some baby massage techniques that are especially helpful for babies with Down Syndrome. Piper gets all the attention!
