For weeks, Joe’s stepping has been mostly of the “left-right-left-fall down” variety. He eventually made it up to seven steps, which was his record as of yesterday morning. By that afternoon, he had managed 16 steps at school, and another 18 in physical therapy!
Today, his teacher sent a note home saying that he’d taken 30 steps!
We haven’t gotten any of these sudden spurts on video, but I did catch this little milestone at PT yesterday: Joe let go of one surface, shuffle-stepped toward another one, and then moved over to it. Hands-free transition!
I don’t know why the audio didn’t pick up, but at the end you can see his therapist say “That’s awesome!”
