Whoa!

Joey had PT today, and he totally kicked butt! I think he got more done in 30 minutes today than he has in the whole time he's been getting therapy. He's had trouble with lifting his head, so we've been working on tummy time a lot. She brought one of those swim noodles to use for tummy time. She cut a small piece and put it under his armpits and propped him up on it. He lifted his head RIGHT AWAY! AND he held it up for almost 10 seconds! I'm so glad she brought that - I was so excited I nearly cried :) She also brought a pinwheel and he followed it 180 degrees. All the way from one side to the other. This is a big deal because he can't move his eyes from side to side yet, but he's starting to do it. And he stays focused on objects a lot better than he ever has. So he locked on to the pinwheel and followed it all the way over. I'm soooo happy!!!!!!!

ALSO - September is National Hydrocephalus Awareness month!!! Spread the word!
