Butterflies

I’ve been thinking about butterflies a lot lately. Partly because it would have been my sister-in-law’s birthday a few weeks ago and I have always associated butterflies with her. I have also been watching Sammi become MORE. This week he has discovered that he can get around. It isn’t exactly crawling. I also wouldn’t call it scooting. Maybe more like a cross between crawling and flopping. Whatever it is, it gets him to where he wants to go. Today, he managed to get from a seated position into a crawling position all on his own for the first time.

These are milestones that I know I celebrated with my oldest, but I never had to work as hard with him to get to these milestones. I don’t know why Sam is having so much trouble. Neither do the docs. The one test we were depending on to actually give us answers had nothing to say. It was a relief to find out he has nothing wrong, but a little frustrating at the same time. I have seen him start to improve with the help of occupational therapy and he really started doing things when we made sure to add B12 and a multivitamin + iron into his diet. It’s possible that he was just unable to derive certain vitamins in the quantities he needed from my breastmilk and from food.

Whatever it is, I do see him improving. He is still behind, but he is not getting more behind. That is encouraging.

I went running today for the first time in a few weeks. I decided to restart Week 1, Day 1 of C25K. I ran up and down slightly hilly terrain. My legs now hate me. My lungs weren’t so happy, either. Tomorrow, I aim to get to a BodyPump class at my gym. I feel like I am starting to get back on track.
