She liked colorful toys that made sounds and could visually follow a moving toy with her eyes.  She laughed when talked to and teased.  Emily was described as a sensible child who doesn’t usually cry.  She is obedient and goes to sleep easily after playing in bed for a moment.  Emily is described as a smart baby who is quiet and fond of playing games. She can lay on her stomach and hold her head up, locate the direction of sounds and follow moving objects around the room turning her head from side to side.

In a July 2015 update it was reported that: “Her development is still very delay. We have provided her therapy everyday. Now she can follow the sound and moving stuff. She still can’t sit, grasp, make any sound.”
