Starting Early Intervention

I can't believe that September is here and summer is over! In a few short months Fall will be ending as well. I am not looking forward to those Winter months since Jacob's time outdoors will be limited so we are trying to get out as much as possible while we still can.

Jacob has been growing like a weed. He is about 21 inches long and I would guess he is approaching 12 pounds. He has started laughing which is so much fun! If I stick my tongue out he copies me and sticks his tongue out and then he laughs. He gets a real kick out of it. He has also started reaching for his toys and playing with them. He has a toy that he can bat at and every time he hits one of the paddles it lights up and plays music. Some nights he could probably bat at it for hours if we let him. These are all things that are right on target for his adjusted age so we are really happy with his progress.

His first Early Intervention session is scheduled for October 6th and he also has his next pediatrician appointment on October 21st. At this appointment, we will start his Synagis shots for RSV and hopefully that will help protect his little lungs this Winter. We are also taking our first road trip with Jacob to Pennsylvania and Ohio on Columbus Day weekend so I will have lots to report on next month!

I have uploaded a few new pictures of Jacob. We took him apple picking this past weekend and he was very well behaved. He was zonked though after the long day as you can tell in one of the pictures.

That is all for September! More to come in October!
