Cooper's hyptonia and neuro follow-up...

This video was taking on St. Patty's day so no worries that he's out in the world looking like a leprachaun! Cooper has been so active these last few weeks! He's an avid (commando) crawler these days and is now (finally) able to push himself up from the floor into a standing position! He's also (finally) feeding himself which is awesome because now we can eat together! He's also mastering his eating with utensil skills which is super adorable :) We went to the neuro today for a check-up and he was impressed with Coop's recent physical gains. He also doesn't see walking in Cooper's future until he's 2 but ya know, you gotta just not worry about those types of things when you have a special needs baby. You can't boggle yourself down with timetables because he'll do it when he's ready AND not before... He gave us a new set of tests to have done to try to figure out the cause of the hypotonia. One of the tests is a needle being inserted into one of his muscles to test for impulses, maybe I'm not explaining it right! Here's a video of Cooper crawling and then pushing himself up into a sitting position :)

  1. I guess I should have also said that this is Joshua formerly of The Parent Hood, which I haven't updated since last September. I hated to abandon it, but updating there and on Facebook got to be an insane task with two jobs and two kids. Anyway, just wanted to pipe that in so it didn't look like some random person coming by.

  6. I'm so proud of Cooper for all he can do! I wouldn't be surprised if the walking comes sooner than the doctor thinks.
    Send that adorable leprechaun to my house any time! He's cute however he is dressed. xoxo
