Proud Mommy

Dylan had his Occupational Therapy lesson yesterday, and I could not have been more proud of him! Ok, so my eyes welled up more than a few times...what can I say? I'm a sap.
Here are the notes from his OT:
"Dylan worked very hard! We worked on different positions - belly on boppy, side lying, back. He is doing better with tracking - even starting to move his head a little to track. He worked on reaching with his arms with therapist support."
I am telling you, this was like a totally different kid from the OT lesson a few weeks ago. He appears to be making some really nice gains and I am feeling so encouraged right now.

It's funny...every time I lie Dylan down on the play gym, his big sister has to lie right next to him. Whenever Dylan is practicing tummy-time, Cassidy practices right along with him. When I finish feeding Dylan, Cass will sneak onto my lap and lie on the pillow just like Dylan does. She has been such an incredible big sister. Better than I could have ever expected.
Here they are lying together:

Yay Dylan!!!! I know it comes as little comfort but Dylan was chosen for you and you for him for a very special reason. You are all in my prayers and thoughts constantly. And don't be surprised about Cass...she has an incredible mother who has shown her everything she knows.

your kids are very cute!

i just found your blog. i have three boys, ages 3, 2, and 7 months. my middle son has Down syndrome, and had an AV canal successfully repaired in 2007, when he was 6 months old. he is now healthy and happy and all of that seems like lifetimes ago.

i know what you're going through, and it is just so hard. all i can say is keep putting one foot in front of the other, and you'll be on the other side of surgery before you know it. i hope everything goes quickly and smoothly for your sweet boy.
