A therapists Dream...

Today we had our second session of OT. We have been working on sitting with hands on his legs, reaching for toys slightly above mid-line, shifting weight will on tummy by reaching up off the ground and pushing buttons. When Carla came today I was VERY excited. Josh and I have both been working very hard on these skills with Malachi. When Carla went over our "homework" she had Malachi do each task. And he did them ALL. She was thrilled and impressed. She also said that He was a therapists dream. Yeah Malachi! We are so proud of him and how far he has come! He still has a LONG LONG way to go, but we are making progress and thats all I can ask for! She said that he is supporting more and more weight in his arms. We got some new things to work on. We are supposed to put him on his knees and have him bear weight on his arms while pushing against a foot stool. We are still working on getting his trunk strength up. Keep up the great work Malachi! We are so proud of you baby!

All right PeeWee! Think you could have a talk with Christopher? He is the "therapists nightmare" LOL!

You are looking good with your glasses. You look like you are gaining weight. Big strong boy. Hugs to all!

Rock on lil man, rock on :) We'll be thinking of you all tomorrow and will anxiously await the pictures from Malachi's first Buddy Walk. Wish we could be there but alas, life has happened again. I'll touch base with you about our BW a little later-it's scheduled for 10/24/09 so we've got some time :) Enjoy your weekend!

I am so glad you found my blog! I am new to finding people and enjoying every second of it. Malachi is beautiful! My Justin just turned one. I remember working on the sitting skills and bearing weight on hands and knees. He still struggles with that one... but they will both get there! Let's follow each other!
