Mitchell is the SWEETEST baby. He coos, and LOVES to be held and snuggled. He smiles at times, can grab ahold of toys for 1-5 seconds. Favorite toys are lights, music (prefers baby Einstein) and he loves measuring spoons! He rolls over occasionally, and can sit with lots of support. Loves the swing outside and taking a bath in his bath chair. He eats puree baby foods, (still makes himself gag if you're not careful) and fruits are definitely his favorite. We go to therapy twice a week for PT (physical therapy) and OT (occupational therapy) and have in home therapy twice a week. I am one educated mom!
I have to admit Mitchell still struggles with being happy and probably cries 6 hours a day. He wakes up usually twice a night, and it takes 15-60 min. to get him back in bed. We've been wrapping him really tight again, and he's slept through the night twice in the last 2 weeks!
We had a little party at the park for Mitchy and my friends really pulled through for me. It's so hard not to feel like a bad mom, or really want to do things for someone who doesn't care. I made cupcakes, and Mitchell scored on the gifts. Pictures to come...
I really wanted Mitchell to get to eat something special for his b-day so we made PUDDING. I recorded this video, so you can see how absolutely sweet Mitchell is. He is so precious, and we are so lucky to have this sweet little boy in our home, I had to share part of him with you!
