Awesome Therapy Day

Tyler did awesome in therapy today. The first 30 minutes of therapy he is on "land" and the second half is in "water". Or you can also call the "water", aquatic therapy. Tyler worked hard for Ms. Jenny on land but he really impressed Cory in the pool. Tyler was kicking his legs non-stop and even when his time was up and he was out of the pool he was still kicking. And of course Tyler thought that was funny!

He also did some sit-ups in the pool. Cory would have Tyler sitting in his lap and bring him down to a laying position and Tyler would pull up all by himself holding Cory's hands and was using a lot of his core muscles. Cory also was not supporting Tyler's head this entire time, and Tyler was keeping his chin tucked and not throwing it back (which he does quite often). So that was awesome.

Since he had an awesome day in therapy, I thought I would add a picture of Tyler sitting on his new bench he got for Christmas. He sits on it so nicely, if I say so myself :)

Modified Ball Pit

Tyler got a sandbox for Christmas that we are going to convert into a ball pit and then if we want we can change it into a sandbox. But honestly I hate the thought of sand getting everywhere. I am sure his therapists would love Tyler playing in sand since it is a good sensory thing but I will have to ponder on doing that for awhile. So for know its a ball pit. The only problem is is that the ball pit is still at my parents house because it didn't fit our car with all the other presents. So for now this will have to do.

Caught In a Tight Spot

First of all, I want to wish everyone a

Happy and Healthy New Year!!!

I know I have mentioned before that Tyler loves playing with the window blinds and yes he still enjoys playing with them. The other day we were making dinner and we moved Tyler's chair over to the blinds to occupy him while we finished up dinner. He was having a blast but I think the blinds won this time.
