I've been really excited about Brooklyn's new skill. (which she hasn't deigned to repeat, by the way) But her slow progress leads me to wonder. Would she do this on her own anyway even if I wasn't doing baby yoga, gymnastics, physical and occupational therapy and everything else I can think of? I wonder. And I'll never know because I'm not going to stop and see if her development suffers and then say, oh, I guess it IS helping! That would be dumb.
