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.
