Unforgettable Mistake

Okay, so this will probably be one of my favorite mommy moments! I have been stressed out the past couple days because I have been so worried about Judah. He has been doing this head shaking thing. You know when a baby eats baby fruit like peaches, and it is a little tart and so they do the little head shake? Well Judah has done that when he is eating but the scary part is that he has been doing it when he is not eating. It sort of looks like a bobble head. I have been stressing out over it because I thought maybe something was wrong with my sweet little Judah and I even started crying when I was talking to Glenn about it.
I talked to the doctor about it when I took Savannah in for an appointment and he said that it was probably just a slight problem with his nerves connecting to his muscles. But that if it increased he wants to know. That very afternoon he did it again and then the next day. Then I was really scared. The strange thing was that Judah was developing normally in a lot of other ways. He has been making new noises and learning new toys. So it was really hard to know what was going on. Glenn gave us both a blessing and said Judah would be fine and comforted me. But I was still thinking about it quite a bit and thought maybe I should take him in to see the doctor since he had done it twice in 24 hours and that was pretty frequent and I thought back to how many times he has done it and it was probably about 9 times in a month and when I thought of that it seemed really frequent. This has all happened the past three days. Today I was going to call but I was sitting on the couch talking to Judah who was standing by the couch and all of the sudden he did the shake thing. But instead of worrying this time, something clicked in my head. I must have nodded my head. So I did it again. and he did it again! Because his little neck muscles are still developing, what I thought looked like a spasm was really Judah learning how to nod his head! LOL! He has never shaken his head no so I didn't recognize it for what it was and most kids don't know how to nod their heads when they're not developed all the way. So I grabbed my camera and started coaxing him and this is the video I got. I am so grateful my little Judah Boy is healthy and happy and nothing is wrong. I just love this little guy so much!!!
