When Willow first entered her institute  she could raise her head, clench her fists and would cry when hungry or wet. At the age of 6 months she liked to play with both of her hands in front of her and she could grasp toys. At the age of 1 year she could sit alone, crawl and stand for a moment with help. She could pass toys between her hands and would look around to see who was calling her name. At the age of 1.5 years she could stand alone, walk with someone holding her hand, shared toys with others, babbled and imitated adults. At the age of 2 years she could walk alone. When she fell she would pick herself back up. She liked to take the toys in and out of the play room and was able to pick up tiny objects with her fingers. At the age of 3 years Willow made great progress and rarely fell down. She could go up and down stairs and liked pulling a small trailer around. She could scribble with a pencil, undress and learned to use the potty herself.
