Chris and I want Colin to walk so badly so that every little thing he does that shows he is taking a "step" in the right direction makes us super excited. Yesterday during the transition meeting, it came up that Colin still isn't independent walking yet despite the fact that we explained that he is walking with minimal assistance. Someone brought up in the meeting about whether or not we would need to get him special equipment (whether it be "medical" equipment or simply a stroller) so that he could get around at school if he still wasn't walking by the time he started. Oh the look I must have had on my face! I quickly started saying that if someone would just hold his hand, he would walk! I do NOT want that option even surfacing again! As Chris and I said, we don't need him becoming comfortable getting pushed around everywhere he goes!
Anyway, Colin must have had a birdie in his ear because he had physical therapy today and she did a lot of work with one handed walking which he really hasn't done much of lately, or at all. Since that session, I have been able to walk a few short paces only holding on to one hand and he seems much more confident than he did before. We are getting so much closer and I just can't wait!!
