Today, I decided to update the look of my blog. I like the new look better. It makes it easier for me to look at the page and see his slide show and ticker. Today begins the countdown to Tommy's first birthday. In less than a month, my little fighter is going to be a year old! It does not feel like a year. It feels like weeks ago he was born. Maybe it's because wee one still sleeps beside me in a bassinet. I know he isn't going to be in there much longer. He is starting to get too long. I don't want him sleeping with his legs curled up after all of the physical therapy we have done to stretch him out! Speaking of PT, he's been doing remarkable in that area! Look what we have accomplished this week.
Here he is sitting up for a few seconds on his own. Not long, but he did hold his balance for the first time!
This is him playing on his tummy for the first time! He even lifted his head a few times!
The tummy is a really big deal. When we started therapy six months ago, he would hyperventilate the second we tried to roll him over. It has been a lot of hard work for all of us, especially him. I hope by his first birthday, he will be able to lift his head and play on his tummy, and be able to sit on his own. He will probably get a crib for his birthday. I've never made a big deal out of any of my other boys birthdays, but after all we have been through with Tommy, I wouldn't feel right without some sort of celebration. I've got a few more days to plan it!
