New Wheels!!!!!!

Ananya is going to be sporting some new wheels soon. We got a walker from EBay for a great buy and just have to wait for them ship it.
I've seen such a HUGE difference in Ananya's strength and posture since I've had her school walker at home. She stands in it with the wheels locked for an hour and then can walk through the house. She bears her own weight and everything. I guess you have to have seen the beginning to appreciate the present.
This week was just an amazing week for her in general. She was using signs without prompting. She was really motivated. I'm betting the motivation will be gone. She is so stinking stubborn that its hard to know what she can do and understand really.
She loves Rock Band. In the middle of the day, Ananya gets 1 drumstick and Prasun gets the other and you find them in front of the drums beating on them.
Ananya has also decided that she will color. That is definitely something new. Before she just wanted to tear the paper into small pieces.
She can get a spoon to her mouth. Now to work on doing it with food on the spoon. Yeah!!! Doesn't sound like a mess at all.
My house has been nothing but tiny pieces of paper all week. The kids have been playing with last weeks newspaper. They carry it into any clean room and then tear it into small pieces. Fun to clean up.
