Ms. Jen has indicated to us that she can tell Will holding more of his own body weight when he sits up, when compared to his posture when she first started working with him. Way to go Will! I didn't really get to see that, though. Of course on the night that I was there, Will's muscle tone bounced between that of uncooked and al dente spaghetti... there was nothing in between!
Ironically, Will's favorite part of PT is when Ms. Jen seats herself on a dolly (like the furniture moving kind), leans him against her, moves his feet, and they go walking together. From my perspective, this seemed like the hardest work for him... but my perspective doesn't seem to mean boo! Will seems to take a lot of pride in walking. And even though it is pretty physically demanding on Ms. Jen, Will does so well with walking that she does it for as long as Will will tolerate. It was exciting and tear-inducing for me to see!

So there you go... a typically long-winded view into a small portion of our lives as parents of two very special little boys who continue to work exceptionally hard to overcome their challenges!
