Crawling!!!

Most parents take it for granted that their child will crawl, speak and walk.  However, some of us cannot assume that our child will even crawl one day.  These are NOT small things to hope for.  They are HUGE!!

Well, GRACE IS NOW CRAWLING ON ALL FOURS...no more commando crawling!!!!!!!  We have been working on this for what seems forever!!  When I picked Grace up from Conductive Education on Tuesday, she crawled out to me.  It was such an amazing feeling.  I wanted to cry.  Of course, I didn't because it would make her cry (she has such a soft heart and cries if someone else does) but I did jump up and down and clap with joy.  It wasn't easy and was/is a lot of work but she is so proud and so am I.

That is so awesome for Gracie, I remember when Evan started doing that, he was about 18 months and I cried like a baby and called my mom. It was great. He still crawls and I encourage it because it is great for weight bearing on his left hand which is most affected. What a great early Christmas present.

Praise the Lord. I'm so proud of sweet (determined) Gracie. She will never give up and neither will we.

You go Gracie girl!!!

Big Congratulations!! I, too, do not take crawling for granted. It was so exciting when Ethan started crawling on all fours. Go Grace!

Go Grace!! OMG...I am sitting here bawling knowing (or imagining) the strength you had to have to hold those tears back. I can hardly wait for that day for Cole...if it ever comes.
