Making progress!

Ian is making progress! Let me start out by saying that this time last week he was still a bit jerky & not really able to get his hand to his mouth. Now he is getting it to his mouth (left more than the right b/c the right was splinted w/ the IV while he was in the hossy), grab toys (although not quite as well as before), hold his head up, stay in the jumperoo for about 40 min & roll over from tummy to back & has actually rolled from back to tummy once or twice!

It feels like I am recelebrating all his milestones. Part of me is very sad about that fact. It kills me to think about how active he was a month ago. I miss that little boy so much but I am also very humbled that we have him at home & healthy. It seems like I am experiencing polar opposite feelings, sadness yet extreme joy. I know this is part of parenting.

I don't have any pictures but I do have this video of Ian & Gabi taken on January 13th. They were making each other giggle. This was before he got sick & when I saw it, I started to cry. He doesn't hold himself up as well as he does here but I know he will be at it again. His sisters push him b/c he is always watching what they are doing.

It has really got to be hard. I mean, having a sick baby is one thing, but one with a sickness that has effects like that? Of course you're sad that he's not right back to where he was before. But the great news is he's healthy now and it sounds like he's progressing very quickly! YAY! He'll be back to normal in no time.

Im so glad he is making progress! He will bounce back and in a few months he will be caught up I'm sure, if not sooner!

Ian will catch up and he will excel in everything that he does. In his own time. Remember that you are an awesome mom!
