Well, it’s been three months since I blogged, and this time, I just don’t even have an excuse. I guess I could say that I’ve been busy with Little Man or just with having two grandbabies in general, but really, I don’t have any excuse at all.
So what has been going on? Well, one of Little Man’s favorite Christmas gifts has been his Elmo doll. I’m not sure if it’s the music, the fact that Elmo is cuddly, or that Little Man wants to eat Elmo’s eyes and nose, but he just hugs and holds Elmo any time we hand it to him.
Another favorite is his exer-saucer. He has learned how to hit the buttons to make the music, how to jump up and down in it (to the endless delight of his mommy!), and that he can chew on the bird or fish (not sure what that thing is, really) hanging from one of the uprights. He spends A Lot of time in his exer-saucer!
Little Man had quite a bit of trouble with constipation. We were beginning to worry about it causing a bigger issue, so his doctor finally recommended something for him that got him moving, so to speak. After about a week, his big, round, buddha belly had really flattened out. I know he felt so much better! A bonus to that happening was that he was finally able to get his feet. This was something that he had been trying to do for weeks!
He continues to have a Physical Therapist, as well as a special instructor who comes to work with him, and he now has Occupational and Speech Therapists who come work with him. He is still making strides. They might be small ones, but for him they are great! He now holds himself up much better and loves to look at himself in the mirror!
Little Man and The Princess have been getting to know each other and have been becoming friends.
