PROGRESS

So Mike is VERY proud of himself, and rightfully so. He made Jude a scooter board for therapy, and to help him move around.

They used it today in therapy, and Jude was lifting his head up a lot. Also, they put a lighted keyboard in front of him, and Jude kept hitting the buttons. The therapist said it's as if Jude has suddenly broken out of his shell, and is so alert. We have noticed that he has been more alert too. He is babbling, smiling, trying to roll, and my favorite thing his happy legs! Happy legs are when Jude gets so excited to see me, that his legs just go crazy. It reminds me of what Emily did about 4 months old, but regardless of age I am just thrilled. It's almost like he is discovering he has legs, and arms. He is reaching for his bottle again, so I bought him a cup with handles today.

Jude still has a long way to go, but progress is GREAT! Now if I can just get Charlotte back. I think the constant attention, and stimulation would be a wonderful thing for Jude.


PS. Volcano baby erupted last night, and then laughed while he, and I took a bath. I had vomit everywhere, ugh! At least he laughed about it, I didn't!

That's great about Jude's progress with his head and legs! So sorry to hear he's still vomiting. That sucks! That's just all you can say about that. Keep it up! You guys are doing a great job. Jude is very lucky to have such great parents that are so involved and persistant in getting him all the assistance he deserves! Jenn
