Highlights of this week

Started Nutrivene D on Sunday

Monday, November 13th 2017:

Laksh has started hitting moving objects (his mobile) and stationary objects (his play mat) consistently and with purpose. Great start to the week despite the fact that I am back to work and missed seeing this the first time it happened. But thanks to my darling SIL, I at least was notified via text message right away and also got a video (which I don't know how to add to my blog yet and no time to figure it out as well)

Day 1 of PT and my baby rocked it. After weeks of jumping through hoops and calling the case manager every other day we finally got his PT started. Could not take his pictures during exercises but this is him after, passed out in style. Also him complaining to daddy about how hard his day was in the evening.

 Day 2 of PT and a visit from the social worker which was more or less the weirdest meeting I have ever had. The social worker was unable to find parking in the apartment so we had a counseling of sorts in her car, parked in someone's driveway. Again no pictures from therapy yet but added some pictures just for fun. We aren't doing anything special in therapy yet, just tummy time and range of motion exercises. I have ordered a therapy-ball for him which I want to use to help with some core strengthening exercises that I want to start for him on my own.

Some tummy time at home

My darling baby smiled in response to me and then smiled again and again. Best day of my life. Only regret is I did not capture it but will cherish it for the rest of my life. Note to self, go home from work today and take plenty of smiling pictures but in the meanwhile lets see the trying to hold my bottle and pacifier pictures.

Gripping the hell out of this new toy mummy bought for him yesterday. I couldn't be more proud. Its daddy's day home with him today and seems like they are having an awesome boys day in.
