Today at Colin's physical theraphy, Katie (his therapist) was so pleased with Colin's progress. She used words like "amazing" and "wonderful". She even told him that he deserved a gold star! She also told me (more than once) how happy she is with his progress. She said that most babies his age are still troubled with the head tilt and are no where near where he is now.

Whew! That made me feel good. I try to work with him as much as possible with the at-home exercises, but with three kids and working full-time, some nights I am just lucky if I get to hold all of my kids for awhile. To hear that he is doing so well and that she is really impressed with his progress lifts a huge weight off my shoulders. And the superman position he has been doing lately is totally normal for a 6-month old. (Sure he is really 7 1/2 months, but if I remind myself that I am allowed to age-adjust him because he is a preemie, he is really right on target.)

Sometimes it's so hard to believe he went from this:

to this:

in a matter of months.
