And it continues....

These past few month have been full of craziness! Ted deployed to Iraq in May when Teddy was only 4 1/2 months old. It was sad seeing him leave..he is missing out on so much! In August Teddy was diagnosed with Spastic Diplegia Cerebral Palsy. This effects his muscles which in turn effects how he learns to do simple things as sitting up and walking. He received his leg braces and hand splints a week ago and seems to be adapting well. They have to some modifications on his hand braces still. I have seen a huge difference already as the braces give him more strength to sit up and stand. He attends physical therapy once a week and will be starting speech therapy soon.
Teddy has come a long way....from a 3lb 11 oz. premature baby to a 19 lb spaghetti monster. He is crawling everywhere and my day is spent chasing him around. He has even started to cruise the furniture attempting to climb up. Last weekend we visited a pumpkin patch. It was a bit cold but we had a great time! We can't wait until Halloween so we can take Teddy out for trick 'or treating.
