Colin's Progress in PT

Every once in awhile we are surprised with an email from Colin's physical therapist at school telling us about something exciting he is working on or accomplishing.  When I get emails like this lately, I can't help but think "JUST one year ago Colin started walking".  She wanted to tell us that he has been working on the trapeze and he has been able to hold on and swing for a few seconds with assistance.  Love seeing how strong he's becoming!


In the next video, she told us not to mind her excited squeaky voice (she said she gets just as excited as when her kids were making these sorts of accomplishments) but she was so happy because it takes a lot of balance and core strength in order to jump consecutively the way he does at the end of the video.  Not only do I love the accomplishments he is making in the video, but I also the love the fact he just keeps going back to the "start line" to try again.

LOVE IT! Jumping is fabulous. It is amazing just how quickly things come together after sweating so much blood and tears! Congrats.
