Izzy made the paper!

Izzy's story is in the Daily Oklahoman today, front page of the metro section... and also the front page of the MWC Sun. I hoped that the stories would increase awareness of drowning precautions.
Isabelle has done a few things worth noting the last week or two...
...when I picked Izzy up from school last week, her p.t. Camilla said she had been swinging Isabelle and would stop the swing and encourage her to say "go" to swing again. I don't think she ever said go for Camilla. On the way home I asked Isabelle about school as usual and then asked her if Camilla played with her on the swing. She said, "go." I said, "Oh, Isabelle, did Camilla tell you to say go when you wanted to swing some more?" and she said "go" again very clearly.
...I got a little silver ring for Izzy and she has raised her hand to show it off to several different people when asked.
...Izzy touched a little package of chocolates when sitting with me so I placed it in her hand and asked her to give it to me and I would give her a bite of chocolate. She moved her arm to place it into my hand and let go of it at the right time. I then gave her a bite of chocolate which she seemed to enjoy.
There are more, and these may seem small... but to us these things are all huge and step by step we are seeing Isabelle progress. The steps may be tiny tiny baby steps, but we are still on the path of progress.

We are thrilled for all the progress she is making. We will go buy the OKC paper to have our own copy of Isabelle's article.

Wow, what amazing progress Isabelle is making! Praise the Lord! It sounds like she is really motivated, which must be great. I wish I could see the articles in the paper. How neat. God bless you. As always, you're in our prayers.

What great news about Izzy being on the front page of the paper. I would love to see the article.

Izzy is doing so awesome, I'm so glad to hear that she is saying words. I can only imagine how exciting it is to hear her talk once again. God is so good to allow her to continue to make progress. I can totally understand about making little huge steps, I'm always saying this about Luke.

I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day Annie. I pray that Izzy will very soon be walking and talking, for we know with God nothing is impossible!

Love in Christ,
Sue
