Several times a day Max practices walking between me and another person. He just loves this "game" (aka therapy) and is gaining more control and balance every day.
He is up to about six steps right now...so great! Even more exciting is that he finally is doing this independently...i.e. I don't have to ask him to walk over to me. If he is at the couch and wants to get to the chair, he sometimes will take a few steps all by himself. So cool!
But last night he took it up to another level! He was walking between me and our friend Sara and having a blast. Then he lost his balance for a moment but he caught himself as he fell. This skill is huge (as fellow special needs parents will attest). So he was then on all fours (as he caught himself with his hands in front of him)...and I'm thinking "Oh my gosh, is he going to do it? Will he actually stand back up by himself?"
AND YES HE DID! Sara and I went nuts...it was sooooo exciting! This is a wonderful milestone for Max...such confidence and determination. Love my kiddo! :)
