Big Beastie

Crew had his 12-month well-check this morning. He weighed in at a hefty 14 pounds 12 ounces! My little beastie is now fully into 6-9 month clothes. A big accomplishment indeed!

I think we can now call him a "sitter", though we always make sure he has something soft behind him because he's a flinger--loves to fling himself backwards. He is doing some really great things. He is waving hello and bye-bye about 25% of the time now. He even occasionally repeats sounds we make, like "la-la-la" and "da-da-da". Not often, but sometimes; enough to blow our minds.

As far as gross motor concerns, Cerebral Palsy is on the back burner for now. Our personal pediatrician and the traveling neo clinic pediatrician are just not convinced that it's as serious as the neurologist is anticipating. In Dr. J's words, "It's too soon to make an official diagnosis and he is making great progress. We'll wait until Crew declares himself." He's as pleased with Crew's recent accomplishments and as hopeful as we are. He sits!! He reaches!! He grasps and shakes!! He has even passed a toy from one hand to another a few times.

He still has a boogery face. But I love him anyway.
