Motherhood

12 Weeks

So last week I got to spend a lot of extra time with my little guy. Does anyone else use the Wonder Weeks app? According to the app he went through a new developmental “leap” last week and it was so amazing being able to see the changes he went through. Normally he is at daycare all day so if I didn’t have him at home with me I would have missed it all.

He started holding his arm up in the air and staring at it, like he finally figured out what it was and how it works. He smiles and laughs, and also started noticing the dogs and staring at them as well. He is such a joy to be around!

Clubfoot update: His last cast was removed πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌ He also got his brace last week so he had a lot going on, trying to get used to that as well. The first night with the brace was rough, but after that it wasn’t bad at all. I am very thankful for this because I read other clubfoot parents posts about how much trouble they have with the brace. Clubfoot will never actually be “corrected” and he will never actually have a “normal” foot/leg. The casts and brace just keep his foot from turning back in. He wears the brace for the next 5 years and hopefully will not need to be in casts again (like I read about often happening on the “support group”) or have any regression. Good thoughts and prayers!
