Memorial Day was one of the best days we have had in a while. Sam has had some issues with feeding which has really gotten Scott and I down. However... Sam has been making some gross motor gains which have made us very proud. He is trying to crawl using his head as a fifth appendage and he has actually moved forward a bit. But the biggest thing Sam has done was push himself to sitting all by himself. He did this about 7 times yesterday!!! This is a HUGE milestone and one that is indicative of a prognosis that leads to one day being able to walk. Some of the CP scales and research state that if a child can push to sitting independently before the age of 2 there is a 90% chance that child will be an independent walker.
We were so happy that this very special occasion was shared by my dad, who I was on the phone with the first time this happened yesterday morning. I think I blew out his ear drum. Sorry pop... Then our friends Nicole, Jack, Nicole, and Eric came and got to witness for themselves in person. We all had a great day as Sam once again was able to shine his light onto everyone he meets.
Take a look for yourselves to witness this amazing event.
