If he can't do it, no one can.
That's a little chant we say sometimes. Except, Sophie likes the version that ends in "...we'll throw him in a garbage can".
And he is literally our little man. Just check out these pictures...
On the very day he was born, Brandon nicknamed him Button (after Benjamin Button). Especially when he had a little wrinkled forehead. Everyone that meets him, thinks he looks like a little man. I agree. His name fits him perfectly.
Charlie is 7 months old today. He is babbling (says dadadadada), army crawling all over the place, pulling to a high kneel, transitioning to the sitting position, working on perfecting the pincer grasp, eating soft regular foods and likes to dance. He loves to play with the Little People Happy Sounds Home for long periods of time (he likes to open and close the refrigerator door and toilet lid). He is much amused by his sisters and loves to be in the mix of it. He is a great baby. Very laid back and happy.
And he had his first (and hopefully last) EEG on Wednesday. He was freaking me out with some crazy head bobbing. It started a little over a week ago. And he was doing it consistently every day and various times throughout the day. This was the same age Sophie started with her head drops. Except I didn't think they were anything until she had her first jackknife seizure 3 weeks later.
I tried to ignore the odd movements he was making. Because they were more like head bobs rather than head drops. But my heart just couldn't take it anymore. So I called Sophie's neuro on Tuesday and they got us in the next day! He had a one hour EEG and then we met with the neuro immediately after (we weren't suppose to have an official appt for another week but his other patient didn't show up). He looked over the EEG and said it was NORMAL!!! He did a full exam and everything looked great. I know that is a lot to go through for some piece of mind but it was definitely worth it. Because I was driving myself nuts.
Here are some random pictures over the past couple of months...
