Caleb is not crawling yet, but he loves to stand!
Caleb made it through his first bout of stomach flu last week. He was sick Thursday and Friday, but bounced back like a pro on Saturday. He ate very little on the days he was sick (like all of the rest of us that had it earlier in the week), but he made up for it on Saturday. He is still doing great with the bottle and we still haven't had to put the tube back in! His weight never has varied more than a few ounces.
Caleb's occupational therapist assessed him on Tuesday and he is doing really well. It seemed to us like he has been catching up and now we have proof. He is still behind on gross motor skills, but only by about 1.5 months. He still is unable to go from a sitting position to crawling. He is also behind on his oral skills. He makes lots of noise, but still doesn't make any real consonant sounds. Overall, she is very happy with his progress.
Caleb has a cardiologist appointment on Wednesday, so we will get some feedback on how his heart is doing.
This week, we are going to work on solid foods now that he is doing so well with the bottle. Caleb is very interested in what we eat, but not as keen on baby food. We haven't been spending as much time on the baby food and cereal as we should because of our concentration on the bottle feeding. Now that we have the bottle thing going, we are going to need to start on a cup soon!
My plan is to add a new photo later this morning if Caleb cooperates, so if you are an early reader, I apologize. This weekend was crazy busy and I forgot to get a photo. Caleb did go to his first garage sale, White Cap's game and walked in his first Crop Walk. A photo mom would have taken a picture of at least one of these events, but I forgot!
