Averi is still not interested in getting in or out of sitting by herself. She prefers to sit and scream or simply fall backwards and bang her head on the ground which also leads to screaming.
Abbi decided to focus on this today by continuing to work on getting to sit like last week and teaching Averi to sit with one leg in front and one leg behind while supporting herself with her arms. This did not go over well.
She also worked on tummy time and supporting herself on her arms there as well. At one point she propped Averi up on her hands and knees while holding her feet to keep them from slipping backwards. Averi was able to support herself for a minute or two before collapsing to the mat.
Abbi says that Averi has pretty good tone for having DS but to make sure that she doesn’t go frog legged while lying on her stomach. She can’t learn to crawl if her legs are out to the side instead of behind her.
