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 :)
