STEP STEP!!!! HE DID IT!
Today, 9th February 2011 at 6:00pm, Hunter did it. He took a step all by himself, unassisted! We were watching television when he cruised from the table to the foot poof with his hands up in the air... taking two steps without holding onto anything but the sky!! I was watching him the whole time and I couldn't believe what I had just seen! Unfortunately it wasn't like I was holding the video camera when he did this, but it is now permanently imprinted in my mind! I called John right away then my parents. I know it wasn't a fluke because about 5 minutes later Hunter did it again!
I am not sure if I will be able to get it on video but I will try my hardest and it seems that since I was so happy when it happened, Hunter has been trying to do it over and over again.
Keep posted for any updates on videos with Hunter taking this step! Hopefully soon it will be a walk!
The joy you express is noted. Soon he'll be running.ReplyDelete
Special Olympics are in his future. My sister just came back with a group of snowshoers who competed in Thunder bay. :)
Yay, Hunter! We're so proud of you.ReplyDelete
