Weekly Update -- 26 May - 1 June 2008

Yay, I'm 73 weeks old today!

Masinja had a pretty uneventful week this week. About the only exciting thing that happened was that we went and had his 1 year pictures done. Even though he is now 16 months old, his corrected age is 12 months so it seemed more appropriate to have them done this month.

The only other exciting thing this week was the weather, and the tornados that just missed us. We're at the height of the season, so hopefully we won't end up in Kansas with ruby slippers any time soon!

That's all for now.

Take care,

Weekly Update -- 19 - 25 May 2008

Yay, I'm 72 weeks old today!

Masinja had a pretty good week this week. He had PT on Wednesday and it was quite entertaining. His therapist is trying to get him to go out of his comfort zone but he isn't exactly cooperating. She has been working on getting him to take a few steps without holding on to anything. She extended the distance that he had to go between two benches and helped him to "cruise" from one bench to the other a few times. After about the 3rd time he got mad because he didn't want to have to work so hard and he let her know it by yelling at her. She and I both bust out laughing because it was just so cute. After that he must have decided it wasn't so bad because he did it all by himself about half a dozen times.

Masinja also climbed the stairs again. Once he got to the top he decided it was time to go back down again. The only problem was he was trying to go down them head first! His therapist let him attempt it just because she wanted to see what he would do and then she tried to correct him and show him how to crawl down the stairs backwards. He didn't want anything to do with it though because he wanted to do it his way.

Right now he is scheduled to go to PT every two weeks but his therapist said that if he doesn't stand on his own without holding on to anything by the next time that we go he will have to go once a week. She wants to get him walking so we can start getting him caught up. He did officially reach 12 months corrected age this month so it is time that we start encouraging him to walk.

Masinja had a great weekend because T.M. finally came home on Friday. Masinja was so happy to see his Daddy! I'm sure he won't want to let him out of his sight for a few days.

That's all for now.
