Andrew has probably been working a solid two years now on trying to get his fist into his mouth. The cerebral palsy makes his arms very tight so this is a very difficult task for him to do without a little help. But being the determined little guy he is, he has never stopped trying. In recent weeks, all that determination has paid off. It’s still difficult and he isn’t able to do it every time, but look!:
Noticing that Andrew has developed a fondness for sucking on his fist, Eleanor has really gotten into it too and has been very supportive of Andrew’s efforts:
They love each other very much. Fortunately, there is a lot of love to go around because they now have a brand new baby sister, Jane, to love as well. Baby Jane was born this week at exactly 38 weeks, weighing 6 pounds and 14 ounces. We are elated.
