It's only appropriate that I post about Max's latest miraculous development on this Sunday morning...soon we will head to church and we can truly praise Him for all that he has done with Maxwell!
MAX IS STANDING...and WALKING! Yep, he is standing and walking independently and it is AWESOME! He is so enjoying this new freedom...and I think he is also quite surprised by it too! Sometimes he will stand still for a moment and he'll just look at me like "Mommy, look at me...can you believe it? I'm standing!!!"
This has been extremely exciting for all of us! Right now as I type this, Max is watching his "Signing Time" video. He will walk over to me (a few feet away) and show me each sign that they are doing. How cool is that? Once I acknowledge the sign, he is pleased and returns to the video. So fun!
Right now, he only walks in home environments where there are things he can hold on to and "bounce" off. And there are many, many, many falls when he misjudges space or loses balance. I think yesterday he must have fallen at least 50 times! So I know this is a milestone "in progress" and it will be some time before he is truly walking independently, but just a room length right now fills me with incredible pride and joy!!! He has been doing this for about two weeks and it still shocks me!
GO MAX GO! You are truly a miracle lil' man!
(I'll try and get a video asap. I keep trying but he has fallen each time and it's not pretty!)
