Developmentally Blake is moving right along! He has decided he likes to get around EVERYWHERE in our home. Just not the traditional way...I mean really why start now doing things traditionally!?! Instead Blake takes pride in his rolling skills and rolls about throughout the house. From one side of the room...to the other he finds what he wants and then...ready....set....ROLL! It's actually quite a sight to see...and he is fast too!
This is an old video of Blake's rolling to get toys, now he is much quicker- which in turn means Zach and I have some MAJOR baby proofing to do!
Blake currently has a large vocabulary, mostly made up of words that i dont think exist- or at least I don't know the meaning to them! But he constantly says dada, hi, and quite frequently shakes his head no to about everything we say!
Blake is still having some trouble with his left arm/hand. But with lots of stretching, the use of an arm brace and therapy he is using it more and more. Even though I think he would just prefer to use his right for everything!
Speaking of therapy, other than working with his left arm, we are currently working on sitting, we are up to 3 minutes without tumbling, standing with assistance, and of course crawling.
In therapy we also work with everyday things such as eating, picking up foods, he is now learning to use a sippy cup, and much much more! Blake is leaning new skills everyday!
Sometimes it took us a few tries to get it...but with practice...
We got it!!
Blake's newest thing....Raspberries! And not the kind you eat!!
Blake is a constant surprise! Every movement, sound, smile and laugh are true miracles. I thank God every night he allowed me to be his mother. This Mother's Day I will be snuggling close to my miracle baby, and holding close to my heart the memory of my angel Conor!
