At the age of 3-4 months she could hold her hands together, had a ready smile and would laugh out loud and hold her head up to look around when a caretaker played with her.  At the age of 5-6 months she was said to have rich facial expressions, could locate the direction of sounds when called.  She could stretch out her hands to grasp a toy and made sounds of “nana” when caretakers would talk to her.  At the age of 7-8 months she could roll over and would suck her fingers in her sleep.  At the age of 9-10 months she could hold her own milk bottle with her hands while watching other children playing.  She would giggle and smile when played with.

Lumbar vertebra normal, 2. Sacrococcygeal curve straightening, 3. Congenital subluxation of hips? To check CT, 4. Bilateral femur, tibia and fibula normal.
