Working hard today

Man my baby boy is doing so good. His OT came today, I was hoping he was up for it because although he's been acting ok. He still coughs and has a hard time clearing his lungs. We had to stop a couple of times and do a little CPT, or pound the junk up and then suck it out. But he did so good. I can't believe that even though his siezures have increased a little, he still seems to be getting stronger. They still don't think he will ever walk, or even crawl, but if he could just sit up on his own. I really want that, so when we go visit friends like Zoey, or some new friends we met that are close to us, he can sit up and play with them. But that will be a long way off. He still can't hold his head up all the way by himself, and he can't roll over. He doesn't play with toys or reach for stuff, but he's starting to smile again so we'll take that, its still progress.

Come on, got to get that head up.

Hi mom, I'm a big boy

Sitting so tall

Sittin with my feet on the ground, thanks to Marsha's help.

Don't you love those little benches? My PT gave me an extra one of her's to use for Blair. Blair sits on it and I pull up her piano to it and she will sit there and play on it. She will kind of stand and then sit back. We are so grateful she let us borrow it!

Hugs - Tiff
