Let the games begin!

Dearest Malakai,

I haven't written you for so long my angel! I have been so busy and computer problems have been driving me round the bend...

But here I am now!

Well! You are just doing so well! We went for our follow-up-assessment at the Baby Therapy Center on Monday and all three therapists (speech, physical and occupational) tell us that you are still on track for all your milestones.

"On track mom?" Well yes my angel - it just means that you are not falling behind with any of your milestones at this point.

Today we started your Occupational Therapy (OT) and it was such fun!

"Why did I have to start that if I am on track mommy?" I'm glad you asked baby! Because we want to make sure that you stay on track for as long as possible. To do this, we need to start OT now - but OT is a really long word for 'playing games'! We let you spend time on your tummy, getting to know the difference between your head, arms and back... We also play a fun game hitting a beach ball and then letting you push up on a pillow. I must say that I can already see an improvement in your sitting! Well done my boy! You just take all these new movements and games in your stride, smiling and playing along!

I am truly blessed to have you as my son - a more content little monkey would be hard to find! That's not to say that you don't get grumpy sometimes - which you do and you sure let me know! But your grumpyness is never without a good reason, and I am often left apologising to you for whatever silly thing I was doing that made you grumpy in the first place!

I will take pictures of your OT-Games soon and post them for everyone to see!

I am so happy to have you in my life - you are so amazing and my love for you could not be more humbling and awesome and amazing and awe-inspiring!

You and your dad continue to be my pathway, my light and my soft place to fall. Thank you.

You are all my Reasons for Being.
Love,
Mom
