Manic Monday

Mondays are usually pretty quiet around here. It's not usually a day we have anything scheduled, but yesterday we had an appointment with Sullivan's physical therapist out of Jackson. We see her about once a month and sometimes those meetings are stressful. Sullivan is still several months delayed in gross motor movement and sometimes I feel like we go over the same suggestions and steps over and over. Sullivan has proven time and again though that he's going to do things on his own schedule. He's made alot of leaps in development this month despite a rapid increase in seizure activity about 2 weeks ago. He's now getting up on his hands and knees and rocking back and forth, making forward reaching and backward crawling movements in that position, transitioning in and out of sitting, and pulling up to a kneeling position. Since he had improved so much I wasn't as worried about this appointment, and it went very well especially considering he refused to take a nap that morning (which is rare).

Our air conditioning went out a few days ago and the house was HOT. If you know me you know I don't like being hot at all. So we spent the rest of the afternoon camped out at my parents house while the unit was getting fixed. He got into a little mischief while he was there...

 After going to dinner with some friends we went over and visited with Matthew's family for awhile and watched dancing with the stars. Sullivan loved playing with their dog Pepper and had a big time watching Lily dance around like a nut. It was a pretty busy Monday but it ended about the same way as it always does with one of Sullivan's favorite things.. bath time. I'm not sure which he likes better though... the koala-style ride on my head TO the bath or the actual bath.

  1. Oh how cute he is! I am glad you were able to escape the heat some and visit with your parents Rachel. Sullivan is just so precious, and I enjoy keeping up with his antics. hehe
