One of William's 3-year-old birthday pictures - special thanks to Liesa and Laci (PTs), and to Kimberly at JCP Portrait Studio, who always does such a great job taking all of the children's pictures!

Okay, a few explanations...several weeks ago I told William's PTs that my goal for him was that he would be standing independently by his birthday, at least long enough for me to get a picture. As you can see, we succeeded! I am so excited! He is holding a stand for about 45 seconds at a time! If you're wondering what's on his foot, it is a temporary foot lift that we happened to be trying at the time of his pictures to see if it would help with the length difference. And, last but not least, no, his pants aren't too short...they're long shorts!

Here are his other photos:

Isn't he just so precious?

  1. Way to go, William! Those are great pictures, and what an accomplishment stand for one!

  2. He is absolutely adorable! How do you stop yourself from grabbing those little cheeks all day long?!

    And standing by himself - hurray!

    Glad he's home from the hospital. My middle boy spent two nights last week in ours - no fun.

    Happy Birthday to William :D

  3. What a precious boy! Good job, William!

    I am elated! What wonderful pic's of William! Not only is he a "Trooper" but he is a joy and an inspiration! Luv u William!! William, the Lord gave you the BEST smile! A person can't help but smile when you smile....its contagious! Glad you are back home. Keep up the excellent work and I think you just might have a "fan club" following...... I know I am one! Thank you to your Mommy and Daddy for sharing your journey with us. You are doing so much to remind us just how wonderful the Lord is! I must sign this with "Hugs and Kisses" as I am so proud of you for many reasons but also because Mommy got her picture!
    Hugs and Kisses to you and all your siblings as this is a "team" effort!
