WELCOME TO NATHAN'S BLOG!

Nathan is Hebrew and means "gift from God" - we couldn't have been more blessed than to have been chosen as his parents!

Thank you for keeping up-to-date with Nathan. We hope you visit often and enjoy experiencing our son's journey as much as we do. Please feel free to leave comments.

We love hearing from everyone!!!!

Back To Work!

We all love vacations because it affords us an opportunity to be with family and friends and even more importantly it gives us a break from work! Nathan is no exception. While we're away he doesn't have therapy but that all changed when we came home ~ Nathan went back to work too!

These pictures and video are from physical therapy. What we're attempting to strengthen is Nathan's core through balancing. She is also working on strengthening his muscles through the use of medicine balls during play (this one is about 3 pounds).

What you should notice here is Nathan's tongue ~ see how its protruding? That's because he's working so hard. At this time, he can't get everything organized. So, when he's working on one set of muscles others are less engaged.
