2 more weeks!

Today was Joey's final helmet adjustment! We go back in 2 weeks for his final molding & graduation. I can't believe how fast the past 13 weeks has gone! And the difference in the shape of his head is amazing! I just hope his head doesn't regress back very much. The therapist there said that sometimes infants with Down syndrome head's regress back more due to how soft their bones can be. I don't know, Joey seems pretty hardheaded to me!

Speaking of Joey's being hardheaded, his little temper is coming out more and more everyday! If he doesn't get what he wants, he lets you know!

It's beautiful to see their own personalities emerge. Congratulations on a handsome boy!

Christina was SO passive as an infant, I had to check if she was awake sometimes. . .well, as a toddler, and pre-schooler, her preferences are definitely known! I have to remind myself to be grateful sometimes. . .like when she's refusing to work with the speech therapist!

Great to hear that he doesn't have long until the helmet is gone.

Glad to hear Joey is almost done with his helmet. I'm sure he'll be happy to stop wearing it :)
