Jackson turns 3 today! On his birthday I like to reflect on the events of the past year. He was a fox for Halloween. “What does the fox say?”
He went to many, many doctor’s appoinments, which my girlfriend jokingly calls the “ology” appointments: neurology, urology, ophthamology, and physical medicine and rehabilitation. Jackson had countless hours of PT, OT, speech, aqua therapy, music therapy, and Help Me Grow therapy. Thank you to all of Jackson’s grandparents and Barb for making all of the therapy possible.
He got a big boy bedroom and was in the Cincinnati Reds Opening Day Parade.
Jackson graduated from the Early Intervention class at the Perlman Center to the Toddler Class.
He had a bad seizure in August, which led to a prescription for diastat. We haven’t had to use it and we hope we never do.
He had one trip to the ER about two weeks ago, which is a story for another day.
And *gasp* we registered him for pre-school! He starts next week!
It’s been an exciting year with lots of ups and downs, more ups than downs. I’m looking forward to what this next year will bring.
