Always Singing

Liv is always singing.  She loves making up lyrics and melodies and does so all day.  Now that she can cruise more independently, she also can finally explore her surroundings and loves touching door knobs, opening drawers and doors.

First Steps

Liv recently got new braces that help her stand up straighter.  They support the front of her legs instead of the back.  She’s made incredible progress with them, although she can barely stand without them.  Here she takes a few steps with virtually no support!

Getting Faster

Liv is getting faster in her walker.  Because her legs aren’t strong enough to carry her body weight, she uses her arms to support her as well.

Liv loves reading and is always curious about letters.  She’s learned so much already!

Tired

One of the characteristics of NM is fatigue.  Liv tires much more easily than typical children and when she is tired, it’s nearly impossible for her to carry out life’s most basic functions, even lifting her head.
