While we were in Utah, Ty made his walking debut. Ty has always been a little slower in the gross motor areas, but for a while now he has had a better way of getting around...
Ty has also been given the term "failure to thrive". Meaning that he hasn't been gaining any weight, so we have been stuffing his face with all things fattening. His Dr. is concerned that he isn't gaining weight and that he isn't walking. So we were sent to the Early Intervention people to get him tested. We went for his first test today-He has gained 1 pound since the visit to the Dr.
here's the good news:
-They said that overall in all his areas, he is developing just fine
-Early Intervention is FREE
-His muscles aren't strong enough
-And he is too flexible
Which is why it has taken him longer in the gross motor area. So now he gets to do some physical therapy to help him out. I am happy that they think he is doing well and that we can get this physical therapy for him. I will keep updating when I know more...
But Sunday, he made his first real, big move. My mom whipped out some Jello Jigglers and he couldn't hold back any longer, and I amazingly got it on video. This video is currently my favorite video ever because of all the things going on, so here are a few things to notice...1. Obviously, Ty taking his first steps
2. The amount of people cheering Ty on (realizing that this is a very normal moment in my family)
3. Easton sneaking Jello the whole time
