John learning to ride

John & Emma sharing cookies - AUGUST 2009

This is an older video from August 2009, but I though it was cute and wanted to share. This was when John started to become verbal again after starting his treatment.

John is Walking

John took his first two steps on Oct. 19th. Last Monday, November 9th he started walking totally independently. All it took was the therapist showing him how to get back up when he was in the middle of the room and didn't have anything to pull up onto and it was like he got it and hasn't stopped since. Occasionally he crawls when he wants to go really fast, but most of the time he is walking now.

I thought for the GAMT mommies and any future mommies I would make a brief outline of his major milestones. I am also working on getting his levels from Duke from the start of his treatment so that I can post those along with the dates.

Major Milestones

Rolled Over
- Nov. 7, 2008 (apx. 5 1/2 months old). However, he only did this for a few days and then it stopped and it wasn't until working in therapy that he kinda started to roll again, but only from his back to belly if he really tried.

Started Treatment - July 2, 2009 (apx. 13 months old)

Crawling - apx. 14 months old

Cruising - apx. 15 months old

Walking - took 1st steps on Oct. 19, 2009 (almost 17 months old). Started walking more than crawling Nov. 9, 2009.
