Getting stronger

The last few days have seen some nice improvements in Timmy's head and torso control. I have sometimes been able to carefully let go of his head when holding him upright. We are close to being able to use the Bumbo seat again. Hopefully soon.

Yesterday we actually ventured out of the house to meet a friend for lunch -- a half hour drive away. I was nervous about being out that long and especially in the heat. It did really throw off the sleeping routine, but it went really well and we had fun getting a change of scenery.

Also, stay tuned:  on Friday, Mama and Timmy are getting haircuts!

I'm so glad that you were able to get out, and that Timmy has periods of strength! But a haircut! Oh, my!

Dear Lara,

I'm so glad that you were able to get out. My opinion: schedules were meant to be broken!!

BTW, there was a new church directory in my box at work with a note asking me to bring it to you. I'll be in Redlands tomorrow. So, I will just leave it on your porch...I don't want to awaken Timmy if he's sleeping.

God Bless,

Julie Ross

yay for getting out! Sometime's it just what the doctor ordered. And I understand what you mean about throwing off sleeping routines...children (especially Timmy) seem to really do better on routines...but one day will not hurt! :) hope everything is going well...
