Splish Splash


"Pool...we meet again."

"I don't know about this."

"I'll get in further only if I can wear these cool shades."

Christian had physical therapy in the pool today and it went well. It definitely tired him out and made him relax a little.

PT and OT working Christian out.

Hip rotation to warm up those hips and get him in a sitting position.

Sorry about the cleavage shot but it's not often Christian will relax enough to lay against me like this. So tired after swimming, he's actually snuggling with Mommy.

He's also been moving his arms a lot. In fact, when he woke up today he stretched his arms straight up over his head, both of them! It was so cute!

Christian also had tummy time like usual at night before bed. He started using his left hand to push as if he was trying to push himself up to a roll. He had his head going with it, too. I know this picture looks like I'm torturing him but he's moving his head a slightly back and forth. Besides, it gets him to move his head when his face is flat on the bed.

"If I can just...figure...out how to use these things called arms I would be on my back in no time!"

As for discharge...grrr. We need the doctor's blessing and he's MIA for the week. Wonderful. And the social worker is way over worked so I don't expect him to work on my behalf. Just tell me what needs to be done and I'll do it. I really don't mind. The doctor's assistant said, "It is a possibility," when I asked him if we could discharge next week. Vague much? Anyway, stay tuned.

Aaawwww....little man! Love the swimming pics and makes me mush seeing him snuggling his mummy! And the movements...these are all him doing it, not reflexive, aren't they?! Yippeee....:o)

Annoying, annoying about the discharge.....hope they can find someone to discharge you. Seems just crazy that you're tapping your fingers waiting around for some rubber stamp by the awol Dr?!

Thinking of you guys...
