Yesterday while we had Garren on the mat, we had him sitting up, with his feet on the floor. We had him lean back, with his hands to his sides, slightly behind him. Garren sat up, held himself up, for nearly a whole minute. He is getting stronger everyday. I can't wait to sit him up again today and see how he does.
The OT tried something new with Garren yesterday as well. He blew up a balloon, and played balloon volleyball with Garren. Garren was able to keep his eye on the balloon, and raise his hands and hit it when it came his way.
We also met a new speech therapist. She evaluated Garren and went over a lot of information with us. She used big words to describe what is going on with Garren. We're looking forward to seeing how this works out. Last night, Garren spelled to Nancy: "I want to swallow, so I can eat real food."
