It has been almost 4 months since Cliff's surgery! My how the time flies. The past two weeks Cliff has been doing awesome! He seems to be getting better with keeping his balance, which is totally awesome! He is amazing!
We went to Cliff's Special Needs Nutritionist last week and received wonderful news! Cliff weighs 29 pounds 4 ounces, is 35 inches tall and is now in the 10th percentile! The Dr said that he is doing so well that if he continues to gain weight and grow over the next eight weeks we can begin weaning him off of the Boost Kid's Essentials! This is HUGE for us! Cliff has been on a pediatric protein formula since he was one! So it is hard for me to imagine Cliff's life without it!
Cliff stood at Harper's play kitchen and pretended to drink water! I totally freaked out over this because for him to stand up and only use one hand to hold himself up and then tip his head back to pretend he is drinking is huge for him! These little moments are considered milestones in our house. We celebrate what may seem like the tiniest things to most people because for Cliff, these moments are huge, life changing, another step on the path towards overcoming Cerebral Palsy.
And if the last picture was not enough, Cliff stood at our coffee table! Tall and only using his hands for extra balance. He is amazing. These moments make Ross and I burst with pride.
Cliff rode his bike around the lake, which he has totally taken off on, by the way!
He rode, rode and rode some more! We are going to take the handle off of it very soon, once he can learn to steer a little better!
Cliff is amazing. Our miracle. Everyday he is our reminder of how wonderful God is. We are so proud of him! Thank you all for your continued prayers and kind words. They keep us going!
