I decided a few months ago that I was no longer going to be upset that Averi isn't crawling because it makes living in the hospital a little bit easier. She stays on the play mat and doesn't try to wander off onto the dirty floor. So of course she would pick today, her final day in the hospital, to decide to learn how to crawl.
It may not be pretty to the untrained eye but to me it is absolutely beautiful! She is getting on and off of her tummy correctly, alternating her arms and legs, and getting from point A to point B without crying.
This truly marks the beginning of a new and more exciting chapter in our lives. The best part is that every single one of her therapists came at the same time to say goodbye today and they were all able to witness her success. It was very rewarding. Little Averi has come such a long way and we are so proud of her!
