Carly is smiling and laughing more than ever, lighting up with the cutest smiles you have ever seen whenever we sing to her or give her kisses on her cheeks and chin. She is also eating a LOT more than she has in the last year. She will now eat a jar of food in one sitting that would have taken her over a day just a month ago. She is starting to learn how to drink from a cup, with thick liquids like a fruit smoothie coming first and thinner fluids like milk and juice as the next step. All of this new found hunger means the growth hormone is starting to kick in, and Carly has shot up over 1.5 inches in the last month. Her doctors and therapists have been encouraged by how she is looking lately, and we hope to keep this momentum up!
