Mark's Progress

There are days that I want to cry when I'm doing Mark's therapy. On these days he's uncooperative and cries very easily. It makes me cry because I know I have to do it, but I hate seeing him struggle.  

Today he had physical therapy, and I was a little nervous because it was during his nap time. But after bribing him with some m&ms, he started transferring from chair to chair like a little champ. And I am happy to report that he is still on track with his gross motor skills for a 11 1/2 month old. (His age is adjusted back 10 weeks for his prematurity.) Whoo hooo! That's two months in a row that I got this great news! For a kiddo that has been delayed since well birth, this is awesome news for me.

So while it takes a tough Mommy to do the therapy, I'm glad a have the stomach for it. (Notice I said Mommy? Yeah Daddy isn't tough enough to endure the struggle.) I can see how much his hard work is paying off. And I hate to break the news to him, but I will never give up on him, so do your mommy favor and quit fighting it!

  2. I think if you bribed me with m&m's, especially peanut ones, I'd gladly have therapy!! Perhaps your hands are more gentle than daddy's, it's usually the case.

    Have a great day, CJ xx
