What a whirlwind October has been for Mason. From healthy at first to shunt failure and two surgeries to healing again. He had a checkup with Neurosurgery today and everything is looking great with the new shunt parts. Mason is 9 1/2 months old and quite the sweet, determined little man. I just love this smile! Still no baby teeth, but he is so proud of his prop-sit skills. After smiling for the camera he noticed this toy peeking out from under the chair and spun around to get it. After sitting himself back up a bit he noticed a green block – still out of reach. Drat!
So this evening after his bath he decided it’s time to really put some effort into pulling up into a sitting position using the furniture. In case you were wondering, that is the next step before pulling into a kneeling position. And don’t ask me how he does all this when he can’t feel anything below his bellybutton because I have no idea!
This is life with Spina Bifida –
full of determination,
seeing miracles in action!
