We've been asked how Jonny is doing. So I thought I'd give you a photo explanation.
|Standing on one foot.|
He is doing really well with this and can do all kinds of things standing now.
|Doing tricks. |
He has learned to do several tricks using his arms.
|Holding himself up.|
This one is helpful in getting dressed...that is when he doesn't have his leg off to the side.
|Getting on the stairs.|
|Going UP the stairs.|
Though it is blurry, you can see his left leg is being held out.
He doesn't even try to put weight on it.
|Proudly posing for a picture.|
|Scooting down the hall.|
He just drags himself. We tried to get him to crawl one legged
like his friend Isaac, but he won't do that.
|Getting up on his bed.|
He just uses his arms and hops.
|Posing again...he was really liking the attention!|
|He can pull himself into the playroom now.|
|And he uses the rocking chair to play with the trains.|
|As we were leaving, he decided to show me this stunt!|
He pulled himself up using the bars at the end of the bed,
and then before I could stay stop...
|He did this.!|
|Then he rolled out and stood by the ladder!|
Crazy boy...and none of it hurt!
|Getting ready to go back down stairs. |
He often tries to go as fast as he can!
|And sometimes, he has to grab on quick to keep from slipping.|
The other day I saw him holding onto the rail and HOPPING down the stairs!
|Once at the bottom, he just hops into the chair.|
|All done! |
What an excursion that was!
Besides now doing the stairs and pretty much getting around normally, he can now also get himself in and out of the van. This is a huge relief on Mommy and he likes having that freedom too! One thing is for certain, he will have very strong arms!!
