Therapy Updates

Whew...I know it's been a few days without posting, but please bear with me as I get into a new routine of teaching and preparing lessons and working on them at night. I had to update real quick tonight because I actually start to feel anxious if I don't get an update out there!!

Colin has taken off with the crawling. I almost feel like we've downplayed it a little bit because it was something we have waited so long for and then all of a sudden it's here! We get excited over all of the little things, including the fact that he does not sit still and he is starting to explore the house! It's so exciting and it makes me teary to see him enjoy his newfound freedom.

Guess what is also improving?

Colin is starting to get more and more comfortable bearing weight on his legs and standing! He will tolerate it more and more and even allow us to take our hands away for a quick few seconds. It's really exciting! The other day, Miss Kathy (PT) decided to try something new. She starting walking around Colin stamping her feet saying "step. step. step. step." over and over again. She would ask Colin if he wanted to try and with assistance, he starting stepping all over the place. He LOVES doing this and asks for more when you put him back down! It's challenging, but it's so cute and funny. Here's a quick video of "stepping".

Wow - that was so great to watch! Go Colin! I wouldn't be surprised if the peer pressure in school gets him motivated too, as he'll want to do what the other kids are doing - I am convinced that is why Tommy took off so fast! Colin will be on the move before you know it. He looks so proud of himself too! P.S. I feel anxious too if I don't update as well...though no one is pressuring me except myself!
