"He's doing everything a normal toddler should do"

HUGE praise to God for these words just spoken by Seth's physical therapist!! She says she doubts he'll qualify for continued therapy when he's reassessed soon. He's started crawling completely normally instead of scooting; he pulls up on everything, even vertical flat surfaces; he climbs onto the coffee table or the dishwasher door; he walks well with both legs and feet and very little support; all of these are incredible blessings! Just last week she mentioned him possibly needing a brace, but already by this week he is growing out of his idiosyncratic way of crawling and walking.

He's also continuing to eat well. Thank God for His "yes" answer in response to our request that Seth would stop vomiting in the middle of the night. I think the culprit was a different cheaper soy formula. When we switched back to the more expensive one he did fine again. (The cheap one wouldn't mix well, so it makes sense that he was having trouble breaking it down in his tummy too.)

Seth is eating solids and swallowing them as long as he takes small enough bites. He likes the food so much he's tempted to shove in the whole big veggie straw, sweet potato chip, whatever, but then that makes him gag of course. Will does the same thing. :} The therapist worked with him today on learning to take small enough bites that he can handle them going down the back of his throat. He also ate his puréed food really well.

I stand back and see all of this and can hardly believe how good and gracious the Lord has been to us. I realize God's goodness and grace are His character and not dependent on how He chooses to work in our lives, but I'm so grateful He has chosen to work this way in Seth's life!

Love and gratitude,
