Busy, Busy, Busy

This is going to be a short and sweet post as I am completely running on empty and need to get to bed.

Life has been fun, hectic, exciting and tiring all at once.

All of our visitors have left us now which has left us all feeling a bit flat. Their departure was followed straight away by our next ABR clinic. The clinic ran really well and we are starting to see some exciting changes in Caitlin. She has begun to use her right arm to support herself when you push her over to her side. It is still weak but she now has the ability to get her arm out and away from her body rather than tuck it in and under and she can take some of her weight through it. This is a big step in the right direction!!! Unfortunately the left arm is not there yet but we will continue to work on it. She is also sitting a lot better on her pelvis now. Such small gains with so much still to work on but we will happily take whatever we can.

I can't believe that Caitlin is going to hit the double figures this weekend. She will be ten on Sunday. I have been trying to work out what she wants to do but so far, she wants to do everything I am offering. It looks like we are going to the pool for a swim, meeting Nan, Grumps, Ant, Beve and Paya for a picnic and then going out for dinner. I think we might need to refine this a little bit. I love the fact that she can let us know what she wants, she is so clever!

Grace is flat out as usual. Mum and Dad took the girls camping on the weekend in the caravan and they both had a ball. Grace made a park full of new friends and Mum and Dad only saw her at meal times. She came home completely exhausted.

Tom is doing the backward caterpillar and he is getting up on all fours but he hasn't figured out how to go forward yet - it won't be long though. He is sitting up by himself for short periods of time but he gets quite frustrated because he wants to move around. He is really showing his personality now and he still melts my heart every day.

Legs is busy at work and is starting to think about what to do with his long service next year .............

Well, that's it for now. I will put up some photos when I can find five minutes so you can see how much Tom has grown.

By for now
