We had a very good session at Logan's physical therapy appointment on Monday. Since then he has been crawling everywhere on his hands and knees! Yay!!! Logan was evaluated by the Early Intervention physical therapist yesterday. Based on her observations Logan is no longer delayed for his adjusted age! He is performing mostly as a nine-month-old but is also doing some ten month milestones! She said that she thinks he will be walking by 14 or 15 months. She also believes that he will completely catch up by the time he turns two! I know I say it all the time but he just continues to amaze me! Watch out world, there is nothing this boy can't accomplish if he puts his mind to it!

We had a great birthday week! Logan, his Grandma B., Gramma Jan, Papooli, and I brought cupcakes and a card to the NICU and OB's office to thank them for all of the amazing work they did! They were all very excited to see our big boy! We got to visit with Dr. Ghai, you probably remember hearing that name a lot as we neared Logan's discharge date! He gave Logan one of the best compliments saying, "you'd never know he was a preemie." I was so excited to show off my birthday boy, but as you can see in the picture below going back to the NICU drummed up some intense emotions for the grandmas!

It is unbelievable to me that in just six days Logan will turn one! As you can see he is reminding us on a daily basis just how big he is! I cannot believe that it was a year ago I was innocently teaching my new class of kindergarteners, only to be surprised with preterm labor on the sixth of September! I have heard that it can be quite difficult reliving the "anniversaries" of a preemie's birth. I have been doing really well with it and I think it has to do with what a truly remarkable kiddo we have! He continues to amaze us every day! He has become so much more aware these days. He points to pictures in books when you ask him where things are. He will find people's nose and mouth but will only find eyes on a picture! When you ask him to come to you he will scoot his way there. He is becoming so interactive which makes him even more fun! He is getting onto his hands and knees and rocking, so I believe that a full-on crawl will be any day now!
We are looking forward to Grandma B.'s arrival on Wednesday. On Logan's birthday, his Grandma B., Papooli, Gramma Jan and I are going to bring cupcakes to the NICU and my OB/GYN's office to celebrate with the people that helped our little fighter. Then we are going to meet up with Daddy at the Lincoln Park Zoo! On the 12th we will be having a superhero themed birthday party for the little guy! Complete with capes, thanks to Grandma B.! It should be a very exciting week! Make sure to check back for updates and great pics!
