It seems that Samuel's intestinal issues aren't as pressing as we originally thought. In fact, we have yet to hear anything back from the GI doctor or the ACH surgeons. I imagine that if this was a very serious issue, they would be responding more quickly. (I'll take that as good news!)
When Samuel began therapy, he was not impressed....many tears and much screaming! Thankfully, we have seen progress in his willingness the last couple of weeks. Tears aren't as frequent and he is able to accomplish a lot more. I'm less concerned about the physical realm now that he is taking steps (YAY!!!!!) My focus has shifted to getting him caught up socially. Can you blame the kid for being behind since he's spent an entire year cooped up with JUST me and Michael? The big things we are working on are clapping, pointing, and nodding.
Samuel's 15 mo. check-up is in a few weeks. My goal has been to get him to 20 lbs by the time he is 12 months adjusted age. We are SOOOO close...I can feel it!
Here are some pictures of Samuel's adventure on our city's splashpad:
We hope you are enjoying summer as much as we are!
