Josiah got to sit up in a "big boy" seat this morning. OT game to see him and decided it was time to try him in a seat. He did really well with it and was very comfortable. Watching them do this reminds me of the fact that Josiah has experienced so little in his life so far. I never thought that it would be such a big day when my son got to sit up in a seat for the first time. Most babies experience that for the first time when they are strapped into their car seat for their trip home
from the hospital at 3 days old.
The best thing about him being put in a seat was that it gave leverage in the holding argument. While I was watching the therapists put him in the seat I thought to myself... if we can get him out of bed and into this seat why can't we get Josiah out of bed and put him in my arms? So I asked that very question to Josiah's nurse and she agreed with me! She went to bat for me with the MD's and won! Which means I got to hold Josiah today! It was the first time in 25 days! What a wonderful day!
