Back

So, Piecey and Papa left this morning to fly back to their little ol' log cabin in Wyoming. That means that we are back to the grind. And I just heard that it's suppose to snow again tomorrow. Please...can we please have spring. Like now?! I'm all set with winter. The days of being cooped up in the house with a 2 year old who refuses to nap are getting old. We need fresh spring air! We need walks. Flowers. Runs in the stroller. Days at the park!

Anyway...I'm getting ahead of myself. Let's get back to today.

Dylan had an OT session and finally showed off some of his skills. His OT, Courtney, has been trying to get him to reach up for objects for a while now. I kept telling her that he does it all of the time (He really does! I swear!), but apparently he never really felt like showing off for her. I think today he felt like it.

Here he is about to reach up for the object. Looks so sweet and gentle doesn't he?


Well, not only did he reach up for it, but he grabbed that poor bird in about 2 seconds. He ripped it right out of her hands and shook it to the ground! Priceless.



He also worked on lots of tummy time but was getting quite tired by the end. Hey, this is no easy feat, right?! : )


All in all, I was really pleased with his session. I'm telling you, Dylan is quite the hard worker.

Little by little, we are going to get there.

Wherever "there" may be...

Way to go Dylan! When Sydney was his age I was know for saying to our ECI specialist "She's making a liar out of me". I would swear that Syd did something and when Jan was watching... Nothing. Sigh! I love the action shot! Great pics!

Loren Stow said...

Well done!!
I know exactly what you mean when you say he does things all the time and then when the OT or PT is there, all of a sudden, he doesn't do it!
I just have to laugh about it!
But well done for showing your stuff today!!
