Tio Jack!

Sunday, August 29th, 2010

Jack is from Portland Oregon. He is also known as Blaze. I have a Blaze cat picture of him in my bedroom.  He is alot of fun and we were happy to see him back in Costa Rica. I am out growing my crib so Jack brought me down a really nice bed rail, quilt, and new sheets for me! My dad was so sweet and surprised my mom and me with  my new bed and bed frame that he made out of a very beautiful hard wood! I love my new bed dad  and thanks Tio Jack for bringing down all the stuff to make it so pretty. You better come see us again soon! I had too much fun with you to wait a long time to see you again!

Love Malia,

Superwoman!

Kitimat Visitors!

Sunday, August 29th, 2010

Our good friends Pat, Gary and Ethan came to visit us from Kitimat. That is where my dad is from and where my grandma lives. They stayed a week with us and we had a great time. Pat liked to spoil me and cuddle me bunches! Thanks for coming all that way to see me! We hope you come back soon!

PT Update!

Sunday, August 29th, 2010

Hi,

I dont know where this month has gone! I wanted to update everyone on my latest physical therapist! Sabrina, the Pt from Conneticut, decided not to return in November to work with me.  That is okay though, as we have found Daniella! Daniella lives in Cobano (ten minutes away from me). She is in her last year of PT school. She has much drive and ambition and the best part is she just adores me!

Recently me, mom and Daniella went to San Jose for a week. My mom had scheduled appointments with my team of therapists! Daniella came along to meet everyone and they also showed her many different exercises! The one thing they told Daniella is that she has to keep working with me even if I get upset and cry! You see, I am smart because when I cry Daniella stops working with me and spoils me! However my mom and the other PT’s told her she could not give into me everytime I fussed as I would never get any work done! Darn it! They caught on to me! ;)

We were able to meet Daniella’s professor Geovanny. He is also a PT and a carpenter. He makes special needs items. He wants to make me a stander. He said I have much potential, and was quite impressed with me! He has huge hands and could make my body work wonders. I was sitting up and rolling around with him in minutes! We really liked Geovanny and tomorow we are headed back to San Jose so he can measure me for my stander.

You might wonder what is a stander? Well it’s function is to keep me upright so that I can feel the weight of my body. Geovanny said I should be standing upright 3 to 4 times a day. It is important for my growth.  He thinks that my neck strength is strong enough for a stander that allows me to look down and work my neck muscles. So we were all excited about that!

Soon we will be headed to Texas! Cant wait to see everybody!
