Sorry it has been a while since the last update. The pancake breakfast was on Sunday. It went well, and we had a lot of fun!
A couple days ago Caitlin went to visit Timmy and she had a whiteboard that she brought and she asked him to write his name. She put a pen in his hand and he did a line down, then she moved the white board and he did a line across so it formed a 'T'! He did this until he wrote Tim. He got so excited!!!
Tonight when my mom and I was with him we put a pen in his hand and he wrote Tim, then I was joking and asked him to write a funny word, and he started to, he wrote a 'B' and was so excited, he had a huge smile on his face! He was so proud, he answered 'no' when asked if he knew he could do that, and he was so happy that he did it! We are going to buy him a whiteboard and work on this a lot more with him.
This was our first time seeing him since the Giants beat the Braves to go on in the Playoffs, and right when we said "hey Tim, did the Giants win?" He got a huge smile on his face. He was so happy today! He was laughing, and joking around a lot. I love when he is happy.
He likes to do staring contests, and when you say "okay Timmy, 1, 2, 3!" he will close his eyes until you get to 3 then just stare at you and get a smile on his face. Today when I was playing with him I opened my mouth and went "aahhh" and he opened his mouth big like he was trying to copy me. He is doing so much more than the doctors thought he would. I love how far he has come.
