Luke loves his tunnel – he loves feeling the texture, crawling through, and just hanging out in there, including when we rock him in there side by side.
Today we had a joint therapy session with Luke’s OT and DT today and we pulled out the tunnel, which he just loved! He even crawled out, climbed a slide, slid down and went back into his tunnel. Here is a clip of that:
We are so grateful for his therapists, and if you have read some of my other posts, I am a huge advocate of Early Intervention, which provides 4 out of Luke’s 5 weekly therapies. We have an awesome team of therapists, many who have had extensive experience with children with Down syndrome. With their help, Luke was able to start off doing baby led weaning which developed his self-feeding and fine motor skills and I became so much more knowledgeable about how to integrate therapy into play- using simple things like bead necklaces at the dollar store and even making OT sensory/fine motor lap tables.
Thank you to all the therapists out there who work with families like us so our children can be the best that they can be!
