This Just In....
After almost 3 months of physio and lots of work and a lot of singing (especially "Row, Row, Row Your Boat") I am very excited to announce that we have CRAWLING!!!!
Our physiotherapist had doubts and we had doubts that this would happen. Crawling can be very difficult for kids with hemiplegia and many will go straight to walking. I thought Bennett might do this but something started to click on Thursday night and by Friday night we had our first official crawl. There was lots of cheering and lots of tears on my part. Grandma and Grandpa were here to see it and Mummu and Poppa just missed it.
Life around our house will have to change now. Finally after 17 months of having a baby we actually have to really babyproof. The first step was putting up the gate. Jim wanted me to post a picture just to reassure the grandparents (ps. We also have closet handles).
