Here Dillon is laying on the floor. He actually got his head to midline (centered, rather than laying on one side) and held it there for several minutes. I quickly put this toy that lights up and plays music over him to give him something to look at instead of the ceiling! Now you have to understand, this is a normal position for normal babies, but Dillon almost NEVER does this!
Dillon had done a wonderful job at looking yesterday too. I can't get a picture of that, but his eyes were coming down and focusing on the pictures with a bright light on them. Mrs. B was here cleaning and she even saw his eyes moving more and just over all more alert.
I was asked to come to a ladies meeting last night and share how God saved me, how I met Josiah, and a little about what happened with Dillon. After I shared my story, the Pastor's wife surprised me with these beautiful roses! (and a box of VERY good chocolate!) It was such a blessing to share our story with the ladies.
So when I came home with the roses, my husband went upstairs and brought me down the tulips he bought me a few days ago and hid on the third floor. They were going to be for Valentine's Day but they started opening so he brought them down early. Isn't he sweet?!
I didn't nickname him "Monkey" for no reason! Here he is at 7.5 months old standing. He got himself pretty much up on his own, the toy was leaning so Daddy pulled it back up right but that is all the help he had.
This was the best thing Dillon could do! I put him to bed and he threw up (ok, that part isn't good.) But when I started cleaning him up he started lifting his head a little. So I stayed with him for several minutes helping, then I ran for the camera. A picture is worth a thousand words, so I'll stop talking and let the pictures talk!
And if a picture is worth a thousands words, surely a video clip with worth a trillion words!
