When your baby is 1 week old, and she has her 1st MRI and the results aren’t what you thought you would ever hear, let alone something you never want to hear……Veronika has an injury to her brain from the bleed she had before she was born, and we believe that it will affect her movement down the left side of her body, and she will most likely never walk….

I guess at that point in you make a decision, one of two possible options i guess. You either think ‘oh well, if that’s how its gonna be, why bother,’ OR ‘Yes she will walk, and we will come back in when she does and say I TOLD YOU SO’.

Catching up on what Veronika has been up to...

Well yes I know I have been a little less frequent with my blog lately. 
So here goes more of a visual blog....

These were taken in July. We have a fence across the kitchen so 
Veronika cant get under my feet while I am cooking.
I just love these 2 photos of Veronika

We went to the Playschool Concert in July, thanks to our MyTime Group.
Veronika loved the show, but she did however find it hard to see at times, as all the children were standing and because Veronika can't really stand up, she tired really fast. She loved the Music, and at the end she went over and sat on the edge of the stage and was signing 'more'.

10th August 2011
This was taken at ECIS, or Veronika's School as we call it.
 Veronika was standing as best she could with the table supporting her.

 and when that got too much, she just climbed up onto the table to play!

 Cruising in the little purple car. Today was the 1st day Veronika managed to go forward in the car. She has been speeding backwards for a while, but was so excited when she figured out she could go forwards.
 Veronika usually heads straight for the stairs as soon as we get to ECIS. I think she would over them all session long if I let her.....
A few months ago, Veronika figured out how to crawl thru the tunnel, 
but this day she decided just to hang out instead.

Veronika got her iPad holder also on the 10th August 2011. Tascare Society for Children, 
introduced us to TADTAS, who make the Freedom Wheels bikes, to see if they would be able to modify Veronika's pram to hold her iPad. This is going to save me holding it for her when we are waiting for her Doctors appointments. As you can see Veronika was very excited!

And for another proud Mummy moment....This is my oldest son Jordan.
He recently went in the Computer Skills Competition, and he got a Distinction and
was in the top 2% of participants in Grade 3 for Tasmania.
