Letting Go




Recently Leah has been getting a bit more adventurous in her mobility. She is doing awesome cruising around and walking with her push toys. She LOVES to walk holding our hands!

While in standing she has started to let go a bit more. She was originally letting go and plopping on her butt. Now, she will let go and stand for about 30 seconds. She thinks it's the funniest thing ever!

Today, she even got to standing by herself! I'm sure it was sort of a fluke, but I'm also sure I'm going to start seeing it more and more. It was very exciting!

I'm trying to not think too much about walking soon, but I'd like to think we are not too far off!

Hi there! Just found your blog. My son, Max, had a stroke at birth, he's now 6. Your adorable Leah is doing soooo well! It is amazing that she has words and she seems like she will be walking, soon! Standing by herself and feeling sure of her balance is the important first step. I hope she is adjusting to her DAFOs, Max has them too. They're really supportive, he walks well in them. Adding you to my blog roll! Come visit sometime.

That's great news! It sure is exciting to see them trying new stuff. It's amazing how quick they improve too. Well done Leah!

Naah! Not a fluke! Very exciting and indicative of more good things to come. I know it's scary to be happy when you're expecting another disappointment at every turn. Standing alone is a good thing!
