Christopher's "Exercise Lady"





Here is our little spunk in action. We are so lucky to have such a wonderful PT working with Christopher every week. She is AMAZING! Her name is Laura,but Spenc likes to call her " the exercise lady"! We just love her, and so does Christopher. The coolest thing is seeing how much she truly loves him back.
Laura comes to our house once a week for an hour, and it's amazing the progress he is making every week. We might have to slow it down to every other week soon though. It's a little bittersweet because we wouldn't get see Laura as much... we would really miss the interaction Christopher get's with her. But, the sweet of it is that he is improving so much he may not qualify for weekly visits. I cannot complain about that.
See,he is doing pretty much everything other than walking, and that is going to take some time of course. Laura seems pretty confidant that he'll be walking by the time he's 3... how cool is that! We just need to work on strengthning his leg muscles as much as possible, and that job is up to us. He is so much stronger than he was even last month. He walks with Daddy holding his Hands. He knows the process of walking we just need a little more strength in those cute little legs. Anyways, there's a little update on our little guy. Oh, and he is talking up a storm too. The cutest is when we call his name from another room and he replies with "what?" Sooo cute.
Sorry if some of the pictures are a little blurry, took them on my phone.

Wow! What wonderful news. I am so thrilled. I remember with 'Adree's people' as Aunt Larin called them (the infant specialist) they did the same thing with her and i really missed the visit but it felt so great to know that she didn't need visits as often.
So proud of the little guy.
