Tanner's back to work

This should have actually been posted yesterday but Mommy and Daddy were feeling a bit under the weather and went to bed by 8pm. So, Tanner's occupational therapist was on vacation for a month and we had our first therapy session since she's been back yesterday. Tanner loves exercising!! We did his exercises with him when she was gone but she always has cool new ones. Here's Tanner enjoying some ball exercises.

Tanner is back to him happy self since his stay in the hospital. We've seen a few weird eye twitches and blinks but they don't seem to be anything to worry about unless they start to cluster together frequently. We're still a little nervous and keep a close eye on them. Tanner has been pretty vocal for a few months now but he's becoming quite a chatterbox. If he's not eating or sleeping he's chirping at us all day. It's funny because you can see how pleased he is with himself. I think he has a little personal game going on with himself to see how loud he can get. Sometimes I think he surprises himself and he looks startled. Then he smiles and kind of giggles at himself. He's really been entertaining to say the least. Tomorrow we have an appointment with the pediatric oral surgeon. I'm not really sure if this is who were are supposed to see for his abnormal gums and tooth growth but I didn't really know where to start. He has 2 extra frenums connecting his upper lip to his gums. His gums are also very rigid and lumpy. I'm not sure if there is anything that can be done for him or not. I'm hoping something can be done to give his tooth eruption and growth some normalcy. So, we shall see tomorrow. I'll let you all know how it goes. Have a great night!

Love the pictures! Tanner looks like he is really strong. Let me know how the oral surgeon goes. We are going to have to look into something for Riley also.
