Original Blog Post: January 24, 2011- Standing Progress

 Caedmon must be in the middle of a developmental growth spurt because he's been doing so many awesome things in the past five days. 

He's missed a week of aquatherapy because of illness so when he went this last Thursday I was not expecting much, just maybe catching up to where he had been before he missed.  But, almost right away, he stood in the water by himself, totally oblivious to the fact that his therapist had moved away from him, watching the ladies one pool over using medicine balls in their aquatherapy class.  He then took almost two steps forward before losing his balance!

Later that same day, Caedmon was 'driving' his ride-on train toy(another new development, being able to push with his feet), when he stood up with only his leg strength and announced, 'I'm standing!'  He did it a couple more times for effect with a huge smile on his face.  It was a tear-jerker moment.
Then on Saturday at church he decided he wanted to 'help' me stand up from the floor.  He pulled himself up to stand next to me then completely let go of me and pushed me with both his hands, perfectly balanced.  He pushed three times before pushing himself over.  I was telling Adam about it a little later and Adam told Caedmon to 'Help Mommy again.'  (I happened to be on the floor again.)  And Caedmon pulled himself up again and did it. 
We can't wait to see what the coming week brings!
