Big Things

I have a few big things to share!

One:  Cooper is going to be on a poster advertising the Jumbo Gumbo Cookoff for the Allen School.  If anyone knows how to insert a PDF file onto here, I will share it.  Seriously, let me know.

Two:  Yesterday at school, Cooper got on the treadmill for the first time!  He wasn't really walking, but his physical therapist wanted him to get used to the harness and the feel of it.  He didn't fuss or cry at all!  Big boy!

Really concentrating here.

Three:  Yesterday, he had a medical home clinic appointment.  If you recall, they kinda oversee his care and help get stuff done.  For example, they are going to get Cooper in to see the hand specialist at Children's.  The splints we had made are not cutting it, mainly because he takes them off almost immediately after we put them on him, asleep or not.  They also couldn't believe how big he had gotten in such a short amount of time.  I mean, he's grown by about 40% since they last saw him.  Now that he is in the 50th percentile for weight for his age, we're going to back off of his calorie intake a bit.  They want him to maintain his weight, but stop growing quite so fast.  For the first time EVER, the word "overweight" was thrown around in discussing Cooper.  He's not, but they're worried that if he keeps gaining weight at the rate he's gaining, he could be.

One more clinic appointment this afternoon, and it's a big one.  He's going to get another hearing test, so hopefully we'll get some actual answers about that today.
