It started with a broken bookshelf in Ryder's room on Friday afternoon. Three and a half years of holding lots of books took its final toll. I threw it away, stacked all of the books in the middle of the room, and then decided to start a room make-over.
PS...Rustin had his first Physical Therapy session today and I got some great ideas to work with him on. Our long-term goal is for him to walk 20-ft. without assistance or falling....right now he gets about 3 steps in. Usually we hold his hand when he walks and today we started holding onto a wooden spoon (one end in his hand and one end in our hand)....gradually we'll (Matt or I or whoever is walking with him) let go of the spoon on our end in hopes that he'll keep holding on and continue walking rather than dropping down (as he does now when we let go of his hand)...a mental game of sorts. He is making huge progress, but occasionally still has some tendencies which our Pediatrician wants a Neurologist to see him for. That appointment will not be until the first part of May and we are praying that he is walking full-time when the appointment rolls around.
The little stinker was hanging out in Ryder's room with Matt (remember he's doing the 3-day tape job for my paint project, ha!) after his bath this evening, and I caught him standing at the sink...he was so incredibly proud that he had climbed up there all by himself!
