CRAWLING UPDATE!

Today at playgroup, Max decided to alter his crawling style a bit. He wasn't as high on his hands and knees BUT he lifted his head and moved forward all together! Very exciting!

He did it right during song time, so of course I interrupted everyone and said "Look at Max, look at Max!" Everyone gave him a well deserved round of applause...YAY MAX!

Another little boy suddenly became mobile this week (learning to walk and crawl all in just a few days!!!) so everyone was very excited for this amazing progress for our special kiddos. I love how these parents truly "get it" because they know firsthand how much work goes into reaching each and every milestone. Speaking of, tonight I am attending my first "Parent 2 Parent" support group meeting without Maxwell. (I went once before with Max but that didn't work out too well!) I am really looking forward to meeting more parents of special need children.

Kristy, Dylan and Jonah - we missed you all this morning! And we are gone next Monday for Children's for a gazillion clinic visits (again!). So we will have to get together on our own for sure. These two are making progress by the leaps and bounds ! :)

Now Max and I are off to his first official feeding therapy session. Soooo excited to see how they can help us reach our goals.

Hi Amy,

I am SO, SO, SO bummed we couldn't make it today! And to think of missing that very special moment! Darn!

Please email me and let me know who the other little boy was with the exciting news! I think I can guess who it is...very exciting.

Congratulations Mr. Max. I can't wait to see you again. Have fun at your first feeding therapy. I bet you'll have lots of pictures taken. I can't wait to see them.

Congratulations to all the kids. I am sure they are making many many people smile over everything they keep accomplishing. But ofcourse there is a special WOO HOO! for Mr. Maxwell!!

My son was born three months early, but no other complications. He will be 9 soon and I still get teary eyed when I see him do something special or new.
I always enjoyed our early intervention appointments, because the therapists "got it" along with me. Have fun at your meeting!
