Well this morning I was in with Daddy and decided now was a great time to create a really - REALLY stinky nappy! HBOT is good for detoxing out all the rubbish in my system and this is the way I get rid of it. Mummy is a bit surprised that it took us 3 weeks worth of HBOT before I started to do this. Normally it works a lot quicker for me. Since we are on the subject, on Saturday I did 7 dirty nappies!

I started today in the swing, to help stimulate my vestibular system. This is what helps me to organise and process all the information I am given during therapy.
I sat up big and tall and keen to start today
I sat up for a drink from the one way straw. Look at my lip seal! I am owning that straw!
Back to the swing with the Z-Vibe for a bit. I really love the vibration of the Z-Vibe
I am starting to nail these frozen blue berries. I chew them up with my big back teeth and swallow them down.
Jessica thinks I should get the hang of sucking from this little food bottle fairly easily. Sometimes I can squeeze it myself too when the mood takes me
I finished the day trying to blow on the recorder. I am much more accepting of new things in my mouth now.
This was my last session with Jessica for this trip. She is going away on holidays so I will see some other therapists for my last week
Today the thought of therapy made me tired.
I worked on some snow angel exercises. When my arms come down by my side I open my legs out
This exercise is for hip stabilisation. I move my legs together to the side to shift the ball off the table. If you do this exercise yourself you can feel how you use both legs to move your body to the side. It will help me be able to stand up tall on my own
I was standing tall here for a while, but I do still tend to flop over.
So Nico bends me right down and puts some pressure on my shoulders. This makes me want to stand up again. It is similar to when a drawer gets stuck and you pull it out some more before you can push it back in.
Standing in the spider, I practiced some stepping. I have a pretty good stepping pattern. Lift, move forward, heel down and lift off on my toe
Mummy and Nico noticed today, that I actually take better steps with out the suit on my legs! I tend to get a bit stuck together around my knees with the suit on
