We went to the Children's Hospital today to have Gage's first physiotherapy appointment. It went fine ~ kind of a waste of time, but we've been doing the physio like crazy since meeting with the pediatrician a few months ago & the physiotherapist said that he could tell we've been doing it because the bones in his foot are still pretty loose, which is good news. i have one more exercise to do & he's getting me to change the one we've been doing just a bit so that the inside of his foot & heel get a little more stretch. We go to the pediatric orthopedic specialist on November the 12th & we'll know a little more ~ like if they're going to want to treat his foot with casts or special shoes or anything.
G was being his normal cute self, trying to escape the whole time & grabbing everything in sight & throwing it on the ground. He grabbed this big heavy toy & bonked the physiotherapist on the head (the guy was SO good natured) but it made his eyes water...
G also climbed up our whole staircase today. i love this mobile little man. How is it that the baby stage never gets 'old'? This little boy is light & life & joy in this house.

Hey! I'm glad it was ok... I understand about how it might seem like a 'waste' you never see much improvement from one session... esp when you've been doing it at home for so long. I'm going to be sad when we have to switch. I love our girl so much... :( ... i wish I could stay with her... I'm glad Gage is doing so good.. what a cutie in the sink
