Happy News

What She Wore: my new Levis; a Saints tee; tennis shoes.

Things have been really good around here. My mom is doing great--she's already making my dad drive her around on errands. Charlie is also doing really well. A while back, the physiatrist told us that there are very few absolutes in the development of a child with a brain injury. Most parents, however, really want to know if their child will eventually walk. Apparently there's a school of thought on this: if your child can sit independently by the age of two, they will probably walk. If your child does not sit independently by the age of four, they probably will not.

Needless to say, we went a little crazy with the sitting practice. When his OT came on Thursday she commented on how much stronger he is. She thinks his sitting is coming along nicely. He still flops over when he loses control of his head, but he can hold a sit for at least a few seconds. Hopefully, will just continue to improve. Also, the OT thinks he's got so much potential that she's going to start asking around to see if any of the PTs she knows would be willing to work with him. Right now PT is booked solid, so the only way we could get someone is if they went out of their way to do it. So, yay! Maybe a PT and definitely some progress. We are moving right along.

And, it's Christmas time, so we went ahead and took some pictures for our card. This one is the silliest, but it's also one of my favorites.
