Sitting, Pushing Up, and Satting 97...

Hello to all the Jacob followers out there. It's been a fun week with the "Big Guy" and lots of things are beginning to click in his little brain (and muscles). Jacob has been sitting with support and very steady for about a week. He could sit with support at the beginning of September, but would topple over if you left him for even a second. Now, he can sit and "catch" himself with his arms, except when he falls backwards. :) He loves this skill and even attempts to let go and lifts his arms occasionally. We're so proud of his progress. He works so hard!

In the last post we had a video of Jacob pushing up and wow...that skill has gotten better and better. He is lasting anywhere from one or two minutes up and playing with items in front of him. It's kinda cute how hard he has to work just to do this...you can hear him make little grunting noises as he is "working" and then when he lays back down he kinda catches his breath. Silly right lung...let's show it who's boss!!!

The last picture I will leave you with is this one from today... During naps Jacob is put on the sat monitor just to make sure his O2 is good while we're not around. It's set to alarm when he goes below 93 or 94. Well....this is how I found Jacob when he woke up from his nap...

Can you see his face???? Who knows how long the oxygen was off his nose...but obviously it wasn't a problem. The sat monitor never went off... and he was satting 97! :)
Oxygen Schmoxygen...Psssshhhhaaaa!
Thanks for checking in with us. Have a blessed day! So glad God has a sense of humor....
