Here are a few videos from the past few weeks of all of our little guy's new tricks. :)
He's an aspiring beat-boxer... (he goes on an on...but it's so funny I couldn't stop taping him!)
Pianist...(this one is appropriately shorter)
And He's MOBILE!!! :)
Getting to a sitting position from laying down is BIG for us. Most people think of SB and think "leg weakness" but it's often so much more than that. Jet has good leg strength and muscle town but his torso muscles and even arm muscles are weaker than you'd think. We recently learned that on average SB babies (even in the best cases) are often behind 1 month at least in developmental milestones. Jet's been pretty good keeping up until around 7-9 months and ALOT of milestones (crawling, sitting up on their own, pulling up to stand) start happening around then....usually. Jet's PT doesn't really expect Jet to be on this schedule but we want to stay as close as we can for now. SO we've been working on this for the last month at least and I remember thinking "how do you teach him that?!" but he GOT IT! Not only that but he's moving around the floor and army crawling to get to toys. It's only a matter of time before he's into EVERYTHING. :)
We're so excited at this latest milestone and so proud of our little boy!
