Wow, there has been a lot going on today!

Carter had an appointment with his Pediatrician today.  Our little guy now weighs 12 lbs. 8 oz.  He's gained one pound in a month!!  The Doc agrees with me, and doesn't think that Carter is having seizures, BUT we're going to have an EEG done anyway just to be sure.  Carter had one small episode on Sunday morning, but has been free and clear ever since (knock on wood).   They're supposed to call me tomorrow with the day and time of the EEG.

Afterwards, Carter had vision therapy and Occupational therapy.  I  don't usually schedule two therapies in one day, but our vision lady needed to see us today and our OT was already scheduled.  It's alright though because Carter rocked in both of them. 

He's still just chugging along developmentally.  He's rolling from side to side all of the time now, and is raising his legs up higher.  I can see that he's getting stronger, but he still doesn't have the strength to lift his head up when he's on his tummy.  It will come though, he just needs to keep practicing.

Glad he's been 'episode' free.
