Tummy time!

If you saw this picture, you'd think it was of some crazy procedure, right?

Well, you'd be wrong. The doctors finally approved tummy time for Timmy for the first time since he was about a week old. It took a nurse, an occupational therapist, and a physical therapist (along with two parents looking on) to figure out how to do it. But finally (with the help of a Boppy pillow and four different z-flow pillows in three sizes), Timmy made it onto his belly!

The secret is mashing divets in the z-flows for T's trach, for his j-tube, his g-tube, and his knees. You also have to make sure the duck on his pacifier is upside down so that it doesn't keep falling out of his mouth. Once we got him situated, he loved it!
