Making Progress

Our early intervention OT, Carlon, came to visit this morning. Crew weighs 9 pounds, 9 ounces! It's so hard for me to believe that he was ever 1 and a half pounds. He is more than 6 times the size that he was when he was born and more than twice the size that he was when I brought him home in February! That's crazy!

He is a shameless flirt, which is really amusing. He is extremely sociable, which has always been one of his defining characteristics. He likes tummy time a (very little) bit more, now that he has figured out that he can slurp on his hands to pass the time. He is bringing his hands to his mouth very frequently and has started "talking" to us in the last few weeks. He is making some pseudo-laugh sounds that one day are going to turn into a full belly laugh, I just know it! He still doesn't like to hold objects in his hands for very long. He drops them after holding them for a few seconds, but that's still an improvement from what he was doing before.

He has a 3-4 hour appointment this Friday at the neonatal follow-up clinic. Doctors, doctors, everywhere. Appointments, appointments, all the time.
