Music therapy looks like fun, and to be able to do it with a friend = more fun!

I would imagine knowing the Anderson family in person is pretty special. Just like knowing the Higgins is. ;)

Original Entry:
Good Times...
So it has been a while again.  I have all kinds of stuff to put up about Owen's progress. The seizures continue about the same as in the last post.  We are still trying to make the final decision on school next year.  But for this post I just want to put up some great pictures of the fun that we have had this summer with Owen's other special friends.

You have seen Owen's friend Mya in previous posts.  She doesn't have hydrocephalus, but she is special in her own way.  Owen and Mya definitely enjoy each other and this summer they have teamed up for music therapy lessons with Ms. Julie.  I thought I'd share some highlights from those sessions. 

Firstly, Mya got to meet Jigsaw and I think they both enjoyed that very much:

Music therapy is fun for everyone, Sammy and I enjoy it as well.  Here is some of the action from our sessions:

And Jigsaw learning to "bump" the tamborine to play with us:

And how cute is this?  Both Mya and Owen love to touch, and so they are caught holding hands, not once, but twice:

That second picture is from an outing at the mall. Owen goes there for practice in his walker (video on another day) and Mya joined us in her tricycle.

And you can also see Owen showing off his new stroller.  He finally has the strength to sit up in a regular stroller, which has been a blessing to Mommy's back.  It's a Britax Blink and it goes up to 55 pounds.  I'm loving it!

Tomorrow is our last music therapy session for the summer. It has been so much fun that I'm going to be sad to see it over.

And yesterday we had another treat.  If you remember a while ago Owen got to meet Avery (blog here ) and her Mom.  Yesterday we got to meet the rest of Avery's family for a day of fun in the sun.  We had some fun in the pool:

Owen REALLY liked the rainbow beach blanket they brought with them:

So, we'll get back to the medical stuff later, today was just about the summertime fun!
