UPI News Service, 02/23/2016
Joey and Rory Feek continue to look on the bright side amid Joey's battle with terminal cancer sharing their first video of daughter Indiana speaking.
The adorable clip posted across their social media channels Sunday features Indiana saying phrases such as "Mama" and "Dada" without the use of sign language, a significant feat for the 2-year-old who was born with Down syndrome.
"'Look papa, no hands'!!! I took Indy to the grocery store this afternoon and by the time we got home she was saying sounds back to me without using sign language," Rory wrote alongside the video on Instagram.
Soon afterwards, the country singing duo posted another heartwarming video Sunday of Indiana playing outside and enjoying some warm weather. "One more. Indiana signing and soaking up the sun to a Firekid song," they wrote captioning the post.
The videos come days after the family celebrated Indiana's second birthday with Rory mentioning how blessed he feels for Joey to spend more time their daughter Indiana. "For the most part, Indiana's big day was nothing but joy and more joy. She has a way of bringing even the most painful parts of life back into perspective, Rory wrote on Friday.
Joey was diagnosed with terminal cervical cancer in 2014 with Rory updating fans on her health status on the couple's official website. In November, the terminally ill Joey was placed under hospice care a month after she stopped treatment because the disease was spreading aggressively.
