|One month today!|
|He's been holding his head up for a maximum of about 15 seconds! Doing great. He also attempts to roll over every time we place him on his tummy, so we're certain he is doing it on purpose.|
Daniel's "intake and paperwork" appointment with ECI is exactly a week from today. He will be 6 weeks old when he starts occupational therapy, and we will develop an IFSP (Individualized Family Service Plan...I feel like learning all this new lingo is a full time job) at that time. The organization we're working with slowly adds the therapies in one at a time, so he should be doing all three-- speech, occupational, and physical --by the time he is three months old. I've been told speech therapy isn't really needed at this point since he is feeding so well. So I'm hoping we can add that one last. Since he has Down Syndrome I was told he automatically qualifies for all the therapies we want to try for him. And we want them all, so that's great.
|I attempted to take one of those sibling pictures where the baby is on the older child's tummy and they're both gazing soulfully to the side into the camera (you can find an example of what that is supposed to look like if you scroll down a bit here). This is what happened when I made my very unskilled attempt. I am at least grateful he is holding his head up so well!!!|
