Cameron is walking!!

Yesterday Cameron took five steps. Today he took about 10 times that many steps. I think it's safe to say that I have a walker. I have an actual toddler who toddles. And soon he will be running. It's amazing how fast all this happened. But once he started rolling over, getting into a sit, rocking on all fours, crawling backwards and pulling up about a month and a half ago I knew then that he would be walking very soon. Our therapists were thinking it would happen sometime around the begining of September too. Finally! Finally Cameron is on target for most of the motor skill things that the boys should be doing at 17mos of actual age.

Here's video footage of the big event. Sorry it's so dark and grainy, and yes that's Elmo the boys are watching. Hey, whatever works right?

So proud! Isn't it amazing how quick they change! I read every post (0n my phone) and think about comments but hardly ever actually make it to the computer but wanted to tell you that we have been doing a therapy called Vital Stim. I don't know if they offer it where you are. would be glad to talk to you about it. We have been doing it since June and my girls have gone from at most with a miracle taking 2 ounces to always taking aleast 4 ounces...Please let me know if I can give you any more information. I have really seen a difference and would love to help in any way that I can.
