Leo last June, 2011 at 13 months old
Today was Leo's one year meeting. The therapists all had to share how Leo has progressed during the last year and what level he is at developmentally now. Bottom line Leo is at about a 9 month level for a lot of areas and even lower for feeding, oral and communication.
Leo is two years old. This could be a depressing situation, but the therapists didn't even give me opportunity to go there. They all kept pointing out how far he has come. How a year ago he just laid there and did nothing. Could not sit up, could not lift up his head, the list could go on and on.
I just picked out a walker for him with our PT's help. He is moving. He is engaging. He has a spark he didn't have a year ago. Yes, we have a long way to go, but I am thankful that God has surrounded us with an awesome group of therapists to cheer us on.
Leo and Emma (the dog) are now working together.
Leo pulled the spatula from the dishwasher and
Emma enjoyed licking off the remnants of our dinner.
