Bentley and Abby play softball in June and they love it!! Abby usually starts counting down to June in January! This year Bentley started out with a great game, he hit two home runs in the first game!! He was so excited and we were too. Tonight he hit two more.Abby did great too. This is her first year with the pitching machine. She is still learning but is catching on fast. Owen has even made it to all the games so far. He hasn't made it out of the van, but he is there. That means that Lenn and I are both there too. Bentley and Abby get excited when we can all go to their games. As for an update on Owen: he is still happy and smiling but he has lost weight. Not exciting. He did so well holding his weight for a long time but I knew it couldn't last too long. We have cut his calories as I have mentioned before. He used to get 18 oz. 3 times a day and now he is only tolerating 11 oz. 3 times a day. He has lost about 4 pounds, which doesn't seem like a whole lot but when talking about a three year old it is quite a bit. He still has his chubby cheeks though.
On a good note, his speech therapist is great! She made some colors and shapes for him to learn. It is so fun! We hold up one shape or color and tell him what it is and then another. Then we hold up both and ask him to use his eyes to tell us which one we are asking for. He does really well with his shapes but with his colors he doesn't like to pick the colors that are not his favorite. He is a funny boy! For awhile he didn't like yellow so he literally would not look at it. He loves blue, black, and brown.
His OT/PT always brings tastes or new toys for him, one of the favorites is sour spray candy. Go figure! It makes my lips pucker just thinking about it.
He loves all three of this therapists. When I tell him they are coming he smiles. They are all so good to him and with him. We have been fortunate to have good ones we all like.
