So another BIG milestone for Logan he enjoyed a bath for the first time in his entire life. As a newborn he hated them and with his blue spells I couldn’t give him one because I was constantly trying to calm him down not get him worked up. And again after his Glenn his SVC pressures were so high that when he cried his head swelled up so I just gave him sponge baths then as well. So he has been only real baths (like in a bathtub) just in the last few months but with everything that he has been thru new things make him very nervous. And after any surgery he is VERY nervous about being touched certain ways (like he hates his feet messed with because this is where they are always put IVs) and sensitive to new and different noises. So it has taken a while for him to warm up to taking baths. And last Fri. he took a bath and after about 5 mn. he began to not scream. He wasn’t completely comfortable with it but he was completely devastated either.
When he is in the bath he won’t fully relax and insists on staying in the fetal position AND has to have a wub-a-nub (the little animal pacifier thingy) but he isn’t screaming! This is progress!
The other big milestone that we reached is probably tiny to most and ridiculously late for a typical baby is that he rolled over onto his side and stayed there. He has only rolled over to reach something and then he falls right back on to his back. But for the first time that I have ever witnessed he rolled over to snug a blanket, stayed there, and went to sleep!!!
Last week we also had some fluke weather that got just shy of 70 and so Ethan, Logan, and I went for a little trek at the park.
I will let everyone know how our appointment goes tomorrow.
