She loves to wash her hands--which is about the way it works, because it is the hardest thing to do with her. Her balance is too poor to sit on the counter and lean over and she's not tall enough to reach the sink from her wheelchair (yet). So, I brace one foot on a step stool, have her straddle my leg, brace her ribcage with my elbows, and squeeze her little hands open with my thumbs....and turn the water on with my teeth (kidding). And the other 50 times a day she get her hands cleaned with a washcloth in her chair.:)
We are cherishing this sweet miracle girl more than ever lately...what a gift she is!
