Lilyana’s favorite pastime is playing with the toys in her room. There is a long shelf of buckets filled to the brim with an assortment of toys, and she will spend as much time as possible sitting next to them and trying out all the different treasures. Balls, rattles, and cups are some of her favorites, but there aren’t many toys she won’t investigate. We enjoy playtime with Lilyana!

Lilyana’s joy surrounding pool days is as strong as ever. She delights in the water more than anything else, and we love giving her opportunities to play in it. She giggles, splashes, and bounces her entire time in the pool, and we think she could spend the whole day there.

Preschool is one of the best parts of Lilyana’s day. She enjoys spending time with her teacher, playing with the musical instruments, flipping through touch and feel books, and exploring the sensory boards. You can usually find her playing with the jingle bells or feeling all the different textures of a toy. Lilyana’s personality has opened up and we love getting to know all the silly and sweet sides of her.

Lilyana is doing well and is becoming stronger by the day. She practices getting up on her knees to play, and she’s so proud of herself whenever she accomplishes something new. Her beaming smile and giggle light up the room, and we feel privileged to watch her grow.

We’re so thankful that Lilyana has the opportunity to benefit from physical therapy. She’s determined and playful while she works hard, and her physical therapist praises her happy spirit. Their sessions usually end in lots of giggles.

Lilyana recently turned 6 years old. We love to celebrate special milestones like these for the children in our care, and we were excited to celebrate sweet Lilyana. She looked adorable in her purple birthday hat, and she devoured her strawberry cupcake. We are thankful to have the opportunity to love and care for Lilyana.
