It’s been a rough couple of months. Solly’s been doing great, but I found myself discouraged with his rate of progress. In fact, after he turned 6 months, it felt like his progress stalled even though he kept getting older. Feeding became a burden and he even stopped growing. After months and months of working hard, I became sad and extremely anxious over this lack of development.
When I get anxious, I freeze: I’m unable to keep moving forward and don’t know what to do next. And so, I stopped writing.
(Bad decision, Camie.)
In reality, we just had a couple minor blips in the feeding department. No big deal and, in fact, these were “normal” blips – normal for any baby. Luckily, we’ve had a great team of feeding specialists – an ENT doctor, a speech therapist, a GI doctor, and a developmental therapist – who’ve worked hard to get us back on track.
I’m now working on a post to update the past couple months of Sol’s life, and will try to finish it up in the next day or so. In the meantime, please enjoy this fun little video of Mr. Solly Giggles Magoo, taken just this past week while we were driving through Banff National Park in Canada:
