Sorry for the delay in getting something up about Sylas' doctor appointment. I've been feeling under the weather the last couple of days, but thankfully woke up feeling great on this beautiful Saturday in MN. Ryan, Sylas and I like to do something fun on Saturdays, so we went the the Minneapolis Institute of Arts Museum. I'm not sure if we're the ideal family to go to a museum. Sylas was a gem, but early on he figured out that since the rooms were so empty, they echoed. He kept doing this really drawn out "aaahhhhhh" sound. It sounded like he was singing. We thought it was cute, but I'm not sure how everyone else felt about it. At least he didn't get in trouble. I on the other hand got reprimanded for having a glass of water in the museum and Ryan was scolded for having his finger too close to an Ansel Adams photograph. Troublemakers!
Sylas' pediatrician appointment went well. He's a whopping 14 lbs. 15 oz. and 26 inches long. I actually thought he would weigh more, but the ped. said with all of the crawling he's doing he's burning a lot more calories. Of course he's not even on the charts for his actual age (13 1/2 months), but now he's not even on the charts for his adjusted age (9 1/2 months). Hopefully our little man will get a bigger appetite soon.
As for the question of Sylas having Cerebral Palsy, the doctor did say that Sylas is a bit stiff in his legs and pelvis (which we already knew), but she wants him to see a pediatric neurologist and have him make the diagnosis. We won't see him until sometime in September or October. Until then, we'll just keep working with Sylas and pray that he keeps improving. Thanks to all of those who have been praying for us regarding this issue.
Our Occupational Therapist came out to see Sylas on Wednesday and brought what's called a corner chair. It even has a little desk to go with it. It offers plenty of support for Sylas to play while sitting up. He loves it! Doesn't he look darling?
