Best. Day. Ever!


Look at what we got today! Noelie dosen't fit in the kitchen sink any more so we talked with our physical therapist in the birth to three program. This is what we came up with. It is great! It has 4 different height settings. The back and foot supports move and create all kinds of positions. It is made out of all plastic and mesh so it is easy to clean. It also has four velcro straps that are moveable so he can't slide off. The head support also moves up and down. It also moves closer together. Of course we had to try it out right away! I can't wait to try it out in a kiddy pool or the beach this summer! As you can hopefully see, there is quite a difference between the highest and lowest settings in the tub. The only bad thing is that insurance only pays for one of these every 7 years.

In between his eating I try to fit in therapy sessions. He stood up, with my help, for about 2 minutes! Then I sat him on the floor and tried to get him to sit up on his own. (we have been trying this with birth to three for awhile) The longest he has done it so far was about 20 seconds. Today he did it for 5 minutes! I got 2 minutes of it on video and got pictures!
I can only hope and pray that this progress continues. These two things made it a great day! I am so excited for tomorrow!
