Yesterday, Cooper's PT said that he doesn't need the stander anymore! His legs are strong enough now that they're fully capable of standing for minutes at a time yet. He's still not able to stand independently but the stander isn't going to help with that anyways. Here's the thing, now that his legs are strong enough, he has to learn what they're for!
We're working on furniture cruising which is a new move for him. So, I have my hands on his hips and move one leg and he pulls the other one along. He'll get it!
He's just an amazing kid! He works so hard for the things that most kids do without much thought. His PT thinks that he'll be furniture cruising and walking behind push toys by his 2nd birthday which is November 1st. I guess I'll be buying him one of those kid vacuum cleaners or a lawn mover for his birthday! Yay!
And, I am throwing him the BIGGEST party when he starts to walk! He'll deserve it for all of his hard work!
