Sheena's physiotherapist theorised that her lack of coordination in going downstairs using a good crawling pattern might be because she relies on using her sight a lot. Good theory I think.
She is making progress in her awareness of heights, and she's occasionally rummaged up the strength to pull herself up on the couch. She needs constant supervision at the moment when she's at a height, as she still needs directions to turn around to get down. I don't have the confidence that she'll do it without being told - she's just as likely to bum-off the the couch.
She had a great speech appointment this week, and impressed the Speechy with her chattiness and heaps of signs. Her healthiness makes such a difference to her developmental progress.
