Welcome to our journey!

If you are new to our blog, you may want to start with Beginnings - Part 1 and Part 2 to catch you up to speed on Jackson's arrival on December 11th, 2010 (yup, 12/11/10).

Progress and a weekend away

Last Thursday was a busy day for both Jackson and Adam.  I went to work as usual while Adam took Jackson to his reevaluation with Infants and Toddlers.  Overall, the group was happy with Jackson's progress; he's presenting at 3 months in all categories (Cognitive, Communication, Social/Emotional, Adaptive, Fine motor, and Gross motor).  Adam reported back that Jackson performed like a champ and felt the session was less intense than our first evaluation. We will report back in 9 months and we've been approved for more PT (1 hour/week as oppose to a 1/2 hour a week).

After Jackson's evaluation, Adam took the little man to get his blood drawn again to check his thyroid levels and a CBC analysis.  Little man is tough and Daddy did just fine too.

So after all that, Jackson had PT with Karen.  And when I came home from work, I found them like this:

I love how his face gets all scrunched up against your body.  He had a busy day.

We're on a roll with trying new foods...in fact, Jackson has liked whatever we've given him.  He's definitely a fan of sweet potatoes and he tried string beans this weekend.

We took advantage of the long weekend and high-tailed it South to visit with my parents.  We enjoyed some good food, good company, sun...and did I mention good food.  I think I gained 5 pounds back.  Jackson "enjoyed" his first time in the lake and minus near heat stroke, (I exaggerate) he did great on the beach in his little peapod.

Our first trip to the lake was a little nutty with the new baby, but this time was much smoother.  Even though Jackson doesn't nap regularly, he's much more adaptable than he was in February being away from home.  We got him to nap (a little) and he still slept like a champ at night.  Mr. Man is smiling away and we just can't get enough. 

Happy June to you!
