PT: Week 16, Get Motivated

Averi was even less excited than usual to go to PT today.  It might have had something to do with her pooping twice while we were there, but I don’t know for sure.  (Good thing they keep extra diapers there because I didn’t bring enough.)

We are still working on the same stuff and waiting for Averi to figure out how to do it on her own.  Abbi swears that with a little coercion in the right direction, Averi is getting in and out of sit all by herself.  She’s especially good at getting out of sit, with a little help, because she just drops onto her face with no help from her arms whatsoever.

She just fights it so much.  She will go from perfectly content to screaming and arching her back as soon as Abbi starts to move her because she knows that work is coming next.  I have really been trying to work on it more at home and I sometimes wonder if doing it too much is frustrating her because now she even gets mad when I try to help her.

Abbi says that if we could just find something that motivates her enough to want to move, she will do it.  Now, if I only knew where they kept that magic motivation stuff, Averi would be doing a lot more (and me too). =P

Here's something she does get motivated for - getting tangled in her tube.  I walked away for a couple minutes and came back to this.  Seriously.

Whoa Averi, you even got your tube around your ankle. You are pretty amazing!!

She looks so happy...even all tangled up. What a doll!
