What have I been complaining about exactly? Tired, wornout.......sleepy.

Enough of that. I should be thankful for all that makes my body tired. The 8 therapy appointments a week, the added doctors visits & labs every Tuesday.........

If Caleigh wasn't such a miracle and if we weren't so blessed to have been made her parents then I wouldn't get to kiss her chubby cheeks every morning and enjoy all the little steps that we have been able to share with her.

So with that said, I'm going to suck it up and not whine as much. Ok, try not to whine.

On to Caleigh......

She's achieved a few milestones in the last week. First of all, Caleigh can now get back on her back from her side. So if she is laying on her side, almost on her tummy she can turn herself over onto her back. We clap and say YEA! Then she smiles and kicks her legs. Pretty much anytime we clap and give her positive reinforcement she smiles and kicks. It's so cute! Caleigh has been all smiles lately. It's so nice to see her happy because for so long we would work so hard to get at least a content look on her face. Smiles are now Golden in our house. Caleigh is also turning her head to the left a lot more than she has previously. Her head is always looking to the right side and her head has even became flat on that side because of the position. Ever since we started seeing the Network Care Chiropractor, Caleigh has been turning her head with ease. We have an appointment set up to get an evaluation for a cranial band to help re-shape her head, but I want to learn more about it first. Caleigh's hands have also become more relaxed and open easier. We are beaming and proud of all the subtle things that keep popping up each week.


Yesterday, Eric was working and I decided to take Caleigh down to the park to break in the new stroller. I loaded her up in the car, packed all her accessories and took off. This is the first time that I have taken Caleigh out in the car by myself. It was a huge step! She did great. We sang kid's songs and made it the couple of miles down the road to the park. I decided on a particular park close to the house. In the morning, some firefighters from a station close by come and do their morning workout. It makes me feel better to know that they are there if anything should happen. Peace of mind. So we took off walking and jogging. We did that for about an hour and then rapped it up and headed home. As soon as we got home I laid Caleigh down for a nap and she slept a good hour and a half. It was a very successful time out and it made me feel so normal for that short time.

Thankful for our blessings and Optimistically Positive.......
