Ali is coping so well with her eye and leg disabilities—she’s even standing on her own!

Teen Mom 2‘s Leah Messer, 18, and her new husband, Corey Simms, 20, are going through a tough time in their relationship, but there is one bright spot in their lives: Baby Aliannah is adapting well to her new eyeglasses and leg braces! 16-month-old Ali, who was born with eye, leg and arm disabilities, is making amazing progress since we last saw her visit the doctor!

“Aliannah has made so much progress since doctors told Leah they thought she might never walk,” a family source tells OK! this week. “She wears the braces as if they’re just part of her—and now she can stand on her own. Plus, her eyes don’t even look crossed now.” That’s such great news!

And dealing with Ali’s health issues took such an emotional toll on poor Leah, but the family friend confides that things are looking up, saying, “Leah is relaxed now that she’s seeing improvement in Aliannah every day.”
