I don't know about you, but I love SO many things about this video. The top 3 are:
1. Mason is TOLERATING his Kidwalk! This week he has shown extreme interest in being upright and has tolerated it far longer than he ever has (normally his max is 5-10 minutes). This week he is pushing an hour! He wasn't even complaining when it was time to get out - I only had to remove him because it was time for a feed. This is definitely a first for him :) Up to this point his main activity in the Kidwalk has been hanging droopily in it and crying. And in the past, if he has ever moved it, it's because he was screaming and kicking so hard it accidentally moves back. So, that he is happy in it is HUGE!! :D
2. Mason is taking INTENTIONAL steps in his Kidwalk! Yes it's backwards but you have to start somewhere. I think he does actually want to go forward because he wants to see his favorite videos on TV. But at least he understands that his legs are what he has to use to make it go. He has never made that connection and acted on it before!!
3. Mason is moving IN RESPONSE to me saying, "GO!" This means, he understands what "go" means, and even though he's had a nasty draining ear/sinus infection, he can hear me saying it without his hearing aids in! :D
We are so happy that he is making progress in this area, even when he doesn't feel well. We are even more excited to see how he feels about it when his ears are better :)
