Happy 9 month Birthday Joshua!


So tomorrow Joshua will be 9 months old! Amazing, isn't it? Feels like just yesterday when we found out we were pregnant, even sooner than that when we found out about his Spina Bifida and feels like only minutes since we welcomed him into this world. What a crazy and wonderful and scary and joyful and stressful 9 months this has been. And yet..I can honestly say I would do it all over again just to get a peak at his sweet little smile.

Joshua has had to work hard to get to where he is today. I give the little man a lot of credit. For "typical" babies it's a natural progression of tummy time to rolling over to sitting up supported to sitting up on their very own. Not my little man. He had to work hard for these milestones. He had to put in hours every week at physical and occupation therapy, lots of tummy time (which he hates) and lots of doctors appts.... Yet 9 months later I am a very proud mama to say that my son can do the following:

roll over from front to back
roll over from side to side
sit supported
almost sit unsupported
laugh out loud
say "baba" when he wants to
clap his hands together
almost get out a wave
reach for objects
pass a toy from one hand to the other
pick up cheerios and put them in his mouth
AND sleep 12 hrs per night

What great accomplishments! We are so very proud of you Joshua!
