YAY! This is so cool!

Matthew is 2 months, 2 weeks, and a few days old. He's doing really great, except last week we got a diagnosis of torticollis, which isn't terribly serious, but it's going to require physical therapy. It was hard for me to deal with for a few days, but now I'm okay, just ready to get started with it! We have our first appointment next Wednesday.

This photo is a really good illustration of what's "wrong" with him. Basically, the muscle on the right side of his neck is weaker and shorter than the one on the left side of his neck, so he can't really lift his head up from the right side. The physical therapy will lengthen and strengthen that muscle, and he should make a 100% recovery.

I took this one yesterday - he was having a really good neck day, it's not such a great picture of him, but I wanted proof of how well he was holding his head up, cause from my understanding there will be good days and bad days - I wanted proof of a good day for the bad days!

Bath time with Mama!

My smiley boy!
