God doesn't give children with special needs to strong people; He gives children with special needs to ordinary, weak people and then gives them strength. Raising a child with special needs doesn't take a special family, it makes a special family.

Lots of progress!!

Well today was the first time since my surgery that Ms. Nicole, my physical therapist, came to see me. She was so proud of what I can do now!! Since they fixed my shunt my head feels so much lighter that now I can pick it up when I'm on my belly. She was so excited at how well I am doing now. She worked me so hard that I took a 2 hour nap after she left!! (I NEVER take naps that long!!)

Am I a big boy or what?!?! Mommy has been trying to teach me to drink from my sippy cup and now I'm a pro at it! She has to put juice in it instead of water to get me to drink from it....water is no fun!!

Here I am in my Bumbo Seat. Ms. Nicole told Mommy it would help me get strong so I can sit on my own, but I used to always fall over. But since the doctor fixed my shunt, I can sit up in it like a big boy! It's so much more fun sitting up instead of laying on the floor all the time. Before you know it I will be strong enough to sit up on my own!!
