One year ago

Sorry it has been so long. We've been super busy with weddings, baby showers, wedding showers, and outside fun. Gabe has been doing well. He was Baptized last Sunday. He was actually Baptized in August in the hospital, but last week was the official stuff. We've been doing lots of therapy. Gabe's pecs are incredibly weak, so we are really working on him moving objects to midline and activating his upper body. You really need your pecs to get into any type of crawling position. Poor Gabe just hates being on his belly and using those chest muscles. Hopefully he'll realize that using these muscles will help him. We have also gone to the Down Syndrome clinic at Cincinnati Children's Hosp. to get some extra therapy from the speech therapist on feeding. Gabe did great with a vibrating spoon. Who new that spoon would make such a difference. He still doesn't like the cup, but he's averaging a good 4-5 Tbsp a day with the spoon now. One step closer....

One year ago today, I found out I was going to have a child with Down Syndrome. After all the tears and struggles, look at the cute little guy I've been blessed with. He makes me smile everyday.
