31 for 21: Cognitive prowess

The developmental therapist was here yesterday and said although Braska is well behind the curve in her motor skills, she's doing very well with the cognitive things. If I've gotta pick, I'll take that. As she said, the motor skills WILL come eventually. I just wish she'd get a bit more ambition with it...

One example of it, as stated by Miss Judy, is how she controls her bouncy seat. She can kick like a crazy girl and make noise, but when she wants to just do some rocking, her motion changes to this... deliberate and very well controlled. It shows that she understands how her movement affects the desired outcome...cause and effect...good thing.

She also got high marks for anticipating things, reacting clearly to different people, and a quality list of consonant sounds.

  2. Braska is awesome! Delphine's therapists say the same thing about cognitive vs. motor skills. It's so fun to watch their brains work isn't it?

  4. She is such a cutie. And you manage to catch her at it quite often. Good photographic skills you got there.
