Sylas showing off...

Today the early intervention therapists came over to visit Sylas. He was awake and active just before they arrived, so what would you expect... Sylas went into a deep sleep when they arrived. Fortunately, he finally did wake up so he could show off his moves. I laugh at myself because I am so proud of what my 3 1/2 week old son can do. He is right on target in all areas of development for a 1-2 month old! I am sure you are thinking "what is a newborn suppose to be doing other than eating, peeing, pooping, and sleeping?". The therapists evaluated a multitude of developmental skills such as his ability to visually track a moving object, focus on my face, make a variety of noises (grunting, crying, ect.), bring hand to mouth, and raise head while lying on stomach. The plan is to "monitor" him for the next few months and the therapists will intervene as needed.


  1. Sounds great! So did they set you up with EI at the hospital or did you have to call? I'm thinking I will be told what to do at the hospital but not quite sure???

  2. So glad to hear that Sylas is doing awesome and kicking butt in all of those developmental areas! And, wow, he is just so darn cute! And I love the spiky hair. Hope to see you in MN!


  3. Congratulations on your beatiful baby boy!! You are going to have such a wonderful journey with him. My daughter is only 13 months old but I love her more than I can every explain and she amazes me daily. I look forward to following Sylas'progress!!

  4. Great to hear that Sylas and the rest of the familiy are doing so well! He is getting more adorable everytime I see a new picture. You sure make cute kids. Can't wait to see you all back in MN soon so I can meet the new addition. The boys are looking forward to a play date!

  5. Don't you just love Ella's Hawaii dress???
