My Mom and Me

In honor of Mother's Day,
here's a look back at my Mom and me.
I miss her so much!

Circa 1980
I was very sick here...not sure why a pic is being taken! LOL!
I remember laying on the couch for days...and ending up with such a huge knot in my hair at the base of my neck, that mom had to cut the chunk out!
Circa 1987
I know. I know. Nice hair. What was I thinking?
It was the 80's! Shut up! :)
This was on her wedding day, June 10, 1999.

VIDEO - Swimming w/ Laura

Eli does so well in the heated therapy pool at Children's Village. Someday, we hope to have one at home for him.

As you can see in this video, his body is really relaxed. Laura is able to get great stretches out of him, and also movements that he doesn't make "on land". Like here, swaying side to side. That stretches his sides by lengthening them. Good stuff!

Swim Therapy with Laura

Eli did sooooo good! He loves the water.
His PT, Laura, is just so phenominal! We love her. She is
loving, gentle, and safe with him always....especially in the water.
Thank you Laura!

But - it always wipes him out!!!!!

We could barely get him dressed...and he was ready for
a nap while we walked to the car!

May Photo Shoot

Haven't taken pics of him "just being him" in a while.
Decided to do a photo shoot! :)
