Gregory had his 2nd O.T. session today. We really love it there and he gets to work with Miss. Sara. She's great. Its so great to sit there and know for a full hour his body is getting everything it wants and needs! Such a blessing! I finally feel like we are doing something to help him.
Today she had him sit on this rectangle swing and do puzzles while she pushed him back and forth. Then she set up an obstacle course for him. He had to jump on the trampoline 5 times, then walk on "gum drops" which are like half sphere type things on the ground that have pokey things. (Side note: She pointed out to me when he was done how he wasn't walking on his toes. Something with his sensory nerves in his feet made them want to walk correctly or something like that.) Then he picked up a puzzle piece, crawled through a tunnel, onto a huge bean bag and then put the puzzle piece on the puzzle! So fun!
Then he played in the beans and worked on fine motor skills all while getting input and listening to music therapy. She introduced him to the "brush" where you brush the body. You do it at least 3 times a day and helps all his sensory nerve receptors. We'll do it again next week and then I get to take it home and do it with him!
The hour went by fast and it was so fun!

So, remember last week Gregory's teacher threaten him with having to call me and take him home? And it worked? Well, Monday I did have to go get him . . . she had to follow through . . . he wasn't behaving . . . called me around 9:00 . . . school starts at 8:30. So, home we went . . .thought I'd try and do some sensory stuff with him to get all his heeby jeebys out. We made playdough. He loved it! Until he through a piece on the floor and it took 20 minutes for him to obey me to pick it up. There is more to that story. But lets just leave it at that for now.
So, Gregory goes through these phases of itiching dry skin and then he's fine. He's been fine all summer and now the dry skin is back. Now he's big enough to do the lotion all by himself which is one of my most favorite things to watch and see right now. Ü

This is how you fall asleep when Bobby puts you down for a nap and you poop your pants and don't know what to do and are so tired so you fall asleep standing up so you don't have to lay in your poop. The alternative would be to go get Bobby to change you. Or better yet, go in the potty. Ü

Thank you for giving me Gregory. Not only for obvious reasons, but because I can tell you are doing a work in me. You gave me Gregory to make the woman you created me to be. For that I am so blessed to have Gregory.
I love you so much more then you will ever know! What would I do with out you? You have made me a better person. Thank you. It is an honor to be your mother.
