(Hi Uncle Noah & Aunt Jen)
Things on our end continue to be normal, dare I say. Caelen caught another cold and gave it to me, so we've been sick the last 2 weeks, but Caelen did manage to stay off the oxygen this go round. Yay for little miracles.
All in all, life is good. Caelen is still getting some form of therapy 4 days a week, and we also just started mommy & me swim class, but the jury is out on that one. Good thing is that Caelen LOVES the water, but he hates the class. So I'm still going to take Caelen and we'll follow along when we can, then make up our own routine when it's necessary.
Caelen does love the deck and Brid's water bowl still, but he's gotten much better at her indoor food bowl and has improved his fine motor skills through the utilization of her kibble. He likes to grab handuls then put the pieces back one at a time. Well, sometimes he puts them back. I keep the broom handy. See said motor skills below:
He's also gotten quite good at removing the vent covers and hiding phones, remotes, toys, etc, so Martin fixed that issue with double sided sticky tape recently.
He's also still eating mostly everything but food, but small improvements are being made weekly with our awesome speech therapist Ana. She helped me get an appointment at Kennedy Krieger on July 5th to meet with their feeding team for an evaluation and to see if we qualify for their feeding program. We'll see. In the meantime, here's some pics of non-food crap in his mouth.
Last but not least, Martin plays a game with Caelen where Caelen touches Martin's beer and says, "cold!" Then Caelen laughs. This started out fun but got played one too many times...
We hope everyone had a great holiday weekend, and again, thank you to our armed forces for kicking ass and saving ours' everyday!
Love, Katye, Martin & Caelen
