Bertrand is happier than ever. He is making new vocalizations, clearly recognizing faces, and playing little games with us. He is totally into peek-a-boo and tickle monster, even with Victoria. He is tolerating her and other kids better than ever. In fact, he showed more interest in baby cousin Gabrielle than Victoria did!
Bertrand is eating solid foods. In July, after his tonsillectomy, he had an understandable set back, but now he is doing better than ever. For the past week he has been eating (a finely chopped version) of what we've eaten every night! And, we've engaged his teachers to work on him with more textures during snack time too.
Bertrand is on the cusp of sitting unaided. This has been his oldest and first therapy goal, and he is closer than ever to accomplishing it! We're videotaping every therapy session because we've convinced it will happen by December. Just wait and see.
We've tweaked many little things over the past few months (supplements, seizure meds, diet, etc.), but hands down none of this would be possible without Bertrand's amazing therapists. Miss A and Miss V are without a doubt the greatest contributors to Bertrand's recent progress... and our happiness. So, to Miss A, Miss V, and everyone else helping with and cheering for B:
