Lillian loves being held so that she can pay close attention to everything that is going on around her. She does not walk or speak yet, but can kneel down and crawl around independently. Lillian also can make sounds when she needs something. She still has weak chewing and swallowing skills so eats mainly milk and rice paste. She can hold her own bottle. She loves to smile and to watch people talking. Lillian also likes to be teased and held by her caretakers. She is ready for a family of her own!
