Go Alex, GO!

The first set of pictures was taken today, you can see how much more confident Alex has become in just one day. The second set of pictures was taken on Wednesday. Alex would lean forward, putting his hands on the floor, and reach out for a desired object, then on Thursday, he started to get on his hands and knees, and take "steps" with his hands forward to get closer to the object. He isn't bringing his knees forward, so when he gets as close to the object as he can by "walking" his arms forward he the is on his tummy, but sits back up with the object. What motivates this little man? Lights, music, expensive toys???? No, a feeding syringe, a perfume box, and my iPhone. These are the things that have gotten the boy to move. Crawling in the near future???? Funny thing is he hasn't had therapy with a therapist or me since last Thursday since he has been sick. On their own time.........

That is so interesting cos Matt also started learning to crawl using his hands and taking "steps" with them. Enjoy the movement Alex, enjoy the exploration!!!

Marissa said...

Oh my goodness Alex, way to GO!!

Isn't it funny how kids don't seem to care about their toys? Marissa wants to play with her med supplies, diapers, and basically anything and everything she is not supposed to touch!

You are on your way little Bird, on your terms, on your time!!

What beautiful pictures. He is so loveable and precious. Looks like the crawling is going to come very soon. He is ready to go! Hope he is feeling better. I wish I could be that cute when I don't feel well. Love and Prayers!

Watch out world...Here comes Alex! Keep it up big boy!

Christine said...

Wow Alex! That's great news... It only gets better from here sweetie, you have a whole big world to discover. have fun.

Isn't funny how they love the remotes and the phones. Mine are covered in drool all the time and don't bother giving them the ones that don't work anymore, they're about as interesting as the toys. mmmhmm that reminds me.... If you have cat food or dog food anywhere, make sure you move it, once he starts crawling.... I've had to do that, because if i don't the food flies everywhere... Nathan loves bowls, doesn't care for anything in them so he dumps everything and away he goes with the bowl..

Glad to see your little man is feeling better.

Hugs

Oh that is so awesome!!! Caden always made the MOST progress over the summer months when we had no therapy. I think there's something about it!

Go little man!! Look at you. :)

My Blackberry is about the most motivating thing we own when it comes to getting my Peanut to do anything.

That, and the black Zevex mini backpack. All those zipper pulls - fun fun fun! ;)
