Halia is eating, sleeping, pooping, growing, and discovering how to shove her hands into her mouth. I notice that her neck is getting pretty strong already. Her hair is getting really light-coloured and her eyes are turning blue.

Jade is doing well. She's still having seizures and some days are better than others, but we're seeing progress in her development again. The ketogenic diet is definitely working, but I think that we need to do some more fine-tuning. She seems to crash in between meals. Maybe she needs more food to produce more ketones?
Today was not great seizure-wise, but it has been great, language-wise. She's repeating almost everything she hears and is using words that we didn't even know she knew.

It has been a little upsetting to me that she's almost three and still isn't potty trained, but she's had a pretty good excuse. She's making efforts, though, and today was a good example of that. We have her in panties almost all day now. She still isn't telling us when she needs to go to the potty, but she's taking control of the situation and is figuring out her own way to deal with nature's call.
This afternoon, when she had to go, instead of telling us, she improvised and made her own potty. Seriously. I didn't realize what she was doing when she took a puppy-training pad and put it over the musical instrument basket. With her pants still on, she squatted over the makeshift potty and went.
Other than the wet pants, I'd say it worked pretty well!
