PT Update

We just left our weekly PT appointment and Sydney has been cut back from once a week to once every other week!! Yay!! We still need to work on stretching her neck muscles and crawling but over all she is looking so much better!

Band Update

Today was Sydney’s appointment for her band adjustment.  Everything went well…her head has grown 3cm in two weeks!  The technician confirmed that Sydney only has 4 more weeks left in her band!  That means we’ll go back for one more adjustment in 2 weeks then go back for the final appointment 2 weeks after that.  Yay!  Her head looks so much better now.
I won a photography session from a Mother’s Day contest a local photographer held and we went a couple weekends ago to have the pictures done…here are a few from the session:

Florida and Head Check

Sydney took her first long distance trip this past week!  We drove to Florida for several reasons: Sydney’s Great-Grandmother’s 80th birthday party, visit with Aunt Brandi, Uncle Stacey, Mikala and Mason, visit with Grandpa Frank, and to visit with Grandma and Grandpa Basham and Chrissy.  We drove to Brandi and Stacey’s last Thursday…it was a long drive but Sydney did great!  She was really good and we stopped every few hours for food and to get her out of her car seat for a bit.  Saturday we attended Grandma Gladys’ 80th birthday party.  Man, when I’m 80 I hope I’m as active as she it!  She was out on the dance floor shaking a leg and having a great time. 

Sunday we left Brandi and Stacey’s and drove across the state to Steve’s parent’s house.  We spent some time with them and Chrissy and then drove back to Virginia Tuesday.  Sydney did really well on the way back home too.

Today was Sydney’s 2 week head check.  She didn’t have any head growth these past two weeks.  Everything still looks good and she will be in the band another 4-6 weeks.  In 4-6 weeks we’ll get new pictures taken and discuss the options for a second band.  The technician’s will be able to tell us if they think a second band would even be beneficial.  So as of right now it looks like Sydney will get her band off as her first birthday present!!
We have more teeth!  Sydney has three visible teeth and it appears that the top right one is trying to come through AND the tooth next to her top left one is trying to make an appearance too!
