our little blessing

Our son Teak Joseph Head was born on October 28th, 2010. He has been a blessing in our lives even before he was born. We truly feel honored that the Lord chose both of us to be the parents of this special boy. Teak was born with Spina Bifida Myelomeningocele and a minor hearing loss in both ears. Both un-related to each other. These are the curve balls of life. You never know when they are coming, you just keep your head up, step up and hit back with prayer, strength and love.
Welcome to our lives. Teak will one day change the world for the better just the way he has changed us.

6 Months Down

Check your calendars, it has been 6 months since Teak was born. I can hardly believe it. Wow, how a life can change in so little time. It was a good day at start, a beautiful Spring day in Austin. The weather was great. Teak on the other hand was not so great. He was a bit fussy and drooling a LOT so I can only think that he must be getting some more teeth coming in. He had 2 teeth that came in just a few days before he turned 4 months old. They were the 2 bottom teeth. Now, his gums on the top are all puffy and pushing through. Teak has been such a different baby since he learned to sit up on his own around 5 months. He is so much calmer and happier. He just loves to sit up straight with his legs out straight. He doesn't like to fold his legs in at all but has great posture! What a baby boy. We are so thankful that he has stayed so healthy through these 6 months of his life. He is rolling from belly to back only because he hates to be on his belly. We are still working on back to belly but we will get there. He is still seeing a physical therapist once a week and we love her. Simone is wonderful with Teak and truly a joy to work with as well. She is not too opinionated but looks out for Teak and his best interest. Sorry, when you are around a lot of doctors and nurses and therapists you have to learn to weed through their words....remembering that you are the parent of your child and you know them better than anyone. So physical therapy is going great. We do a lot of floor time during the day. It is hard though since all he wants to do is sit, sit, sit.
