One foot in front of the other......

I could try and fool you with the title of this post and a picture of me looking stressed out, and tell you that nursing a baby, in between tube feeding Alex, homework, soccer games, and therapy sessions, that I'm dragging along putting one foot in front of the other. That days and nights all run together, and there is no rest for the weary. I could try and fool you, but then I would be leaving out some very important news....... And one very proud boy!

Alex is starting to walk with assistance, even getting excited, and on occasion asking to walk, in his own little way.





Look mom ONLY ONE HAND!!!!!

wow way to go Alex ! That is so awesome!!!!

Four is challenge with tube feeding one and breast feeding another not to mention the other two. I know what your going thru. Honestly some nights at my house when i have to get up and give my daughter her last tube feed of fluids and I'm too tired to move ... she misses out on 4 oz of fluids. Luckily that doesn't happen very often but I do have my days.

Sounds like your doing great! Good to hear.

My grandson had very low muscle tone and started physical therapy at 6 months. He WALKED at 2 years 2 months and boy did we celebrate. It was so exciting to see him cruising on his own. I'm sure it won't be long and Alex can say "look Mom no hands" as he toddles off by himself. Hurrah for Alex!
