The Pay Off
Well, I cried in Auditory-Verbal therapy last week and I did it again this morning in Physical therapy! And, no, I don't think it's the pregnancy hormones! It is absolutely amazing to see the changes in our little boy. Things are really coming together for him. Last week in AVT, he was so expressionative with Krissa and willing to verbalize about everything! Such a change from our silent boy!
This morning in PT was similar with many good changes. First of all, William is pretty reserved and it generally takes him a bit to warm up to people. He actually treated Laci like she wasn't so bad today. And he worked hard for her: standing on his own without hyperextending his knees, standing up and sitting down on his own without using anything to pull up on, and maintaining a squatting position for several minutes. The change is remarkable! Last week, Liesa adjusted his orthotics, making several cuts and changes. He has actually enjoyed wearing them since. I am very excited to see the upcoming changes! It makes all the trips completely worthwhile!
