It's Fun to Play at the Y M C A

Thank you, he is adorable :D haha. I finally took him to the gym to go swimming tonight. It was lots of fun! We swam from 7 until 7:30 (which is perfect because his bedtime is 8) and he laughed and giggled and smiled and kicked and had a great time in the water. As soon as we got him out of the water he fussed until he was dried, dressed and in his car seat. He just crashed, the second I put him in it. We transfered him from car seat to crib as soon as we got home and he hasn't made a peep. Which is fantastic! I really enjoyed myself, I think we're going to go on Thursday too. And I'm considering taking an aquafit class for me. It's Tuesdays & Thursdays too, right after Skyler's swim time.

And yes I think the glasses are helping his strabismus too! He is getting better at reaching for things when he wears them. I think he has better depth perception because he is using both eyes instead of just one. Plus they are so cute on him of course. He is the cutest baby. In my eyes at least. And while he has stopped doing the head shaking thing he is back to his old chewing nothing thing. He occasionally starts chewing even though his mouth is empty. I think I read somewhere that that could also be a seizure. /Sigh. Here's hoping we just make it to Friday heh.

I've had my own issues too, over the last few days my wrist has started doing that thing again where it's locked up inside. I don't know what exactly is wrong with it, but it feels like the bones are locking together, if I bend it or put any weight on it the pain is excrutiating. My old boss (the chiropractor) used to just take my hand and flick the wrist back into place or something, but he is in Toronto now, so I am debating what to do with it. Live with the pain? Physio? Wrist brace? Cortisone shots? Mind you I have had physio for my wrists before, and braces too. I used to have carpal tunnel pretty bad in both wrists and physio helped a lot, but this pain feels different. Way more hurty heh heh. Anyway, I hope you all are in better shape than I am. (i.e. not falling apart haha)

That's great news about his strabismus and depth perception. Zaven never had strabismus but his depth perception suffered anyway because even though his eyes were properly aligned, he wasn't using one of them as much. He doesn't have a problem telling where something is if it's stationary but he's never liked things moving rapidly towards his face (like in a lot of sports) because he can't tell how far away it is.

Let's hope the chewing isn't as bad as it sounds. What's so hard about this is that both of those behaviors could be serious or could be nothing other than quirks. All kids have them. But Friday will be here very soon and hopefully you'll get happy answers.

That sounds like so much fun. That's awesome that Sky isn't afraid of the water.

That's good news about his glasses. And you're right, they look so cute on him!
