Seven steps!

18 Nov

That’s how many steps BC took on his own in the living room this morning! We’ve been working very hard at a ‘one step and stop’ technique to allow him to regain his balance after each step instead of propelling forward into what would be better described as ‘falling with style’ than walking.

His steps this morning were very wonky, but every time he got very close to losing his balance, he was able to regain it and continue. I think he could have gone further, but got the giggles because I was so excited ;-). He’s a long way from independent walking, but every step is still like a mini miracle to me – yay to you BC!!

    I remember the day Beaver did it. Isn’t it just the most joyous moment? Onwards Big Chicken, there is a whole world waiting for you – and people around the world proud of your achievement.

    Oh, oh, oh! I know just how you feel! I am so thrilled for BC! You will see, things will pick up from here. He’ll feel your enthusiasm, gain more confidence on his feet and get the feel of a gait and want to do it more, and then he’ll be all over the place!!!!
