So, this happened...

I could hardly believe my eyes! The occupational therapist came to our house (like every other week) and wanted to work on trying to get him to sit on his own.
Well he did!

For 3 minutes!
On his own!!!
Now for a boy who couldn't be carried like a normal child for over a year because he didn't have enough head control or trunk support, THIS is AMAZING!
For a long time we had to cradle him in both arms, or have him upright but have both arms on him to support his head. For a little bit, I grieved. I was envious of parents that could just carry their 8-10 month old into a store, on their hip, and plop them into a cart seat like it was no big deal. I didn't think I would ever be able to do that.
I still can't. He now weighs over 30 pounds and still doesn't have the endurance to last a whole shopping trip; but that's ok. I have learned to not compare our life, him, or myself to any other family, kid or mom that I see because I know that none of them have gone what we have gone through...(except for the other families with kiddos like him that I know through Facebook)
For him, at 3.5 years old, this is HUGE and I am so proud of him. He has come so far and we have seen him grow at an even faster rate now that he is in school. We love you buddy!
