Blake has more struggles than I would like my almost two year old to have. A toddler should be running around, throwing toys, laughing, playing and making a mess. My toddler however is in a constant fight with his body. His brain tells him what he should be able to do, and his body unfortunately does not always cooperate. It takes Blake a little longer than most children to reach developmental milestones. Blake started crawling when he was 18 months old. He can not walk, or stand unassisted but as of this past month Blake has become more expressive, more curious and has been constantly wanting to pull up on things. Unfortunately Blake has a hard time with his left arm and it's tight muscles tend to make it very difficult and he will usually throw himself back out of frustration and give up. Which is maybe one of the most heartbreaking and hard things Zach and I have witnessed lately. The pure frustration alone can make us feel so bad and wish the hurt away. However after a lot of frustration, determination and persistent practice through repetition, we are ALMOST there!!!

This video is from today's therapy session you can see how hard he works! Such a trooper!

Winter Hibernating!

I don't know if it's been the bipolar weather here in Kentucky, the craze caused the after Christmas commotion or if it's out of pure exhaustion but I have neglected the blog world for sure!

We, here at the Hargis household, have been bundled in tight here at our house. We make few appearances out in the cold, flu infested world these days! We can never be too cautious! Luckily, Blake has made it so far without anything crazy this winter, only a little snot, fussiness, and cuddling maybe once or twice!

Blake is getting so big, I can't believe (or am in denial) that he will be two in April! We still have daily struggles, and he has been showing more and more frustration at times with the function of his left arm. But of course even a bad arm can't keep this boy gates, and even some homemade blockades won't prevent this boy from trying to get wherever he probably shouldn't be! Although Blake's body doesn't always agree with what his brain wants him to do, his intelligence and thought process astound me on a daily basis. He will no matter what get where or what he wants- even if it take him double the time....he is one determined little boy!!!
