Shucks *Edited*

What She Wore: Red, v-neck tee; navy blue running pants; navy blue and gray tennis shoes. I better do some laundry ASAP, or I’m going to be wearing these running pants all weekend.

What She Ate: I haven’t had much yet–it’s been a busy morning.

Well, I was so excited about Charlie’s progress. He’s been picking up his head a ton, he’s been rolling over a lot more, and he’s been rocking out with the eye contact. He’s also making more attempts to grab things that you offer him.

His teacher came yesterday and they had a wonderful time. She really “gets” Charlie and knows how to work with him. He really performed for her and she wrote a glowing report at the end of the session.

I was pumped and couldn’t wait for his OT to come today.

He didn’t do so well for the OT. I do believe my little munchkin has an attitude problem.

She upped the ante. She was bending him this way and that and stretching him like nobody’s business. She wants to get him a special seat, so he can sit and play with toys.

I don’t know why, but this upset me. I guess, when we make progress, I get so excited that I forget that we’re still behind. I feel like he’s doing so well I want to shout from a mountain top and then I get reminded that we’ve still got a big distance to go. Sigh.

Still, progress is good. Maybe I’ll have a cookie.

Ok, in the spirit of celebrating progress, here are some videos. I apologize to those of you who can’t see them. I’ll do my best to describe them.

First, I have Charlie’s creep. He’s actually starting to move across the floor. He stops to gnaw on his hands, but he’s still making progress.

Next, is the reason I will now have to be a lot more careful with Charlie. He’s getting a lot better at rolling himself over. In this video we almost had a major oops with the chair.

  1. Ya, have a cookie, cookies always make everything better :)

    I can’t even imagine going thru the ups and downs like you have to with Charlie, but just remember overall he’s doing great and the OT is just trying to help him be the best he can be!!

    And of course I know I should get out of my comfort zone, but do I want to??? Haha I’m going to, no pain, no gain, right? The worst that can happen is it’s horrible and gives me something to blog about tomorrow :)

  2. If it’s a corner sitter, you will lurv it. Ace had one and once, I sat him in it with a toy and a pile of Cheerios and was able to wash and dry my entire car. It was crazy.

    I agree to a point….we need to push but not overwork…there’s a fine line!
    Sometimes when a child is given too much and he can’t do it he becomes discouraged and quits totally. Well, you know that from teaching. Take the advice of the OT but be watchful.

    Now go have a cookie!

  4. Hi Kate,

    If you have a cookie, it’s gotta be chocolot chip with milk.

    How are you my friend, I haven’t commented for a long time, but have continued to follow your blog after you switched.

    I watch with awe as you work with Charlie, and admire your patience.

    You are blessed to have such a wonderful son. :)Kent

  5. A cookie sounds perfect!
    Because hey Charles the strong is giving eye contact!!! WOW
    I know how important eye contact is. sigh in time he will reach all those milestones and you would wonder what was the big concern.

    I made blondies if you want. I am sharing them because I want them out of my house they taste great (i always make brownies, but this is the first time making blondies and I am quite pleased.)

    Keep strong

    They will get into trouble rolling over for sure! ; ) Enjoy your cookies!

  7. Perhaps Charlie likes the teacher better than the OT. I hope he likes the new chair!!!!
