3 months old now, but 4 months at the end of November. I feel as though he gets bigger and bigger every time I blink. He no longer has that newborn baby-ness to him and is starting to know who we are. As he’s getting older we’re starting to work more with his physical, occupational, and speech therapists for his development. Right now we’re working on positioning and I’ve been giving him tons of tummy time so he can work on his neck strength to hold up his head. Since his birth and at all of his appointments, I’ve been told and warned that his milestones will be delayed and his growth slow. For the most part it’s been true, but when those milestones he already reached came (like laughing and smiling) I cried such happy tears and we celebrated like nobody’s business. That’s not to say that milestones for babies with typical chromosomes aren’t as big of a deal, not at all! But we are big on encouraging our little guy and letting him know how proud of him we are with cheering, kissing, and loving on him…24-7, but especially when he does something new. Every day he surprises me with how hard he works at lifting his head, rolling over (which he also learned how to do within the last few weeks) and being active. He is such a strong little boy and I’m so proud of him. And that personality of his…well, these photos don’t even do it justice! He is our strong, silly, and spunky Auggie and we will love him till the end of time, no matter how fast or slow he learns.
