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.

Oh yes, that is right, Teak Joseph is crawling and it happened before he was even 9 months old. Take that Spina Bifida!!! He is still pretty cautious but working his way into full blown. He knows hot to do it and does it beautifully on all fours. I was so excited to show his physical therapist, she was excited to see it.
He started off doing these bounces around the floor. He would keep both knees in or one knee in and one leg out and then bounce or actually hop around the room with his arms flailing through the air. It was quite funny to watch especially when he was after a dog or a the cat.
Goodness, people were right about them getting into everything, but again, I am so thankful that we have this problem. This is not a bad problem to have when your little one has SB.
Teak loves to chase the cat. I want to get him on video going after Stella. It is hilarious. He smiles at her and talks to her and then starts after her. She is scared of him for the most part. She only lets him get to a certain closeness then she is done and gets the heck out of dodge.
He first started out towards the dog's water bowl. He had already poured it on himself a couple times so he knew the fun times it brought and the amount of crazy it did to his mother. This child is very motivated by everything that he isn't supposed to have. All of a sudden the toys that he was playing with were so juvenile to him...at least that is how his face looked when I offered them to him to coax him away from the water bowl or dad's playstation or our cell phone charger cords.
In any sense, he is crawling. Check out the video, it took us pulling along a charger cord for him to move but hey it worked. No judgments please. It wasn't plugged in and he only played with it for a bit then it was politely taken away.
