Exciting things happening

I know it has been a while since I posted. We have been super busy and I've felt icky, I guess the pollen. I went to bed early 2 nights and that is when I usually do my posting. So much has been going on and I need to do about 3 posts but I'll just give you the best news tonight!!

We changed Asa PT up again. I needed to free up some time. We've been going 2 days a week for 30 minutes each and while Asa has benefited, it is hard. With summer coming up I didn't want to be gone 3 days in a row for therapy. So we bumped him back up to a single, 45 minute session. We'll see how it goes but I hope Asa's able to give us some good work and not tire out.

So today we went to PT. Asa has loved to be up and walking and he walked part of the way into the therapy gym. Walked, with support, of course. But Ms. Nancy had a little walker out for him to try. I admit, I wasn't a believer it would work. What do you think? Do you think he held onto that little walker? Did he grin so big and start stepping? Did he push the walker out in front of him with very little support? Did Asa do it......

YEP!! He took right off! At his best, Ms. Nancy was only holding him by the back of his pants!!!! He went back and forth across the therapy gym 3 times. And how amazing that I had my camera with me! He got tired and I'm not sure how long he could go but I was amazed at his first try!!

Some other good things, Gracie got her hair cut off. Ball season has started. Gracie played 2 games Sat. and one tonight. They lost 1 and won 2. Cade played one game on Sat. They won. Asa saw the ped for a well-child (I could do a whole post on that in itself!). Dr. Woods was impressed with his progress! Some bloodwork came back good, still I can't help but question.
We are having a yard sale this weekend. Hopefully we get enough to cover our trip to Houston.
So see it's been crazy here!!! And it doesn't look to be ending anytime soon!

Christy said... !! I had to look at those pics twice to make sure what I was seeing!! Yay, Asa!!

To answer your question about the lactase def...I have no idea what it points to!! Another thing to try and figure out.

I am so happy for Asa. Does he wear a benik vest?
