Sitting Up and Reaching!

First, I want to thank everyone for the prayers, love, and snowflakes for Everly's family and the OI community.  Truly, thank you.  Thank you for your understanding and your kindness.  Thank you for your respect.  Losing a member of the community is so hard, especially a young one.  


The past few days, Isaiah has really shown that he's feeling better after everything he went through two weeks ago.  He's gotten completely back to his normal, and is now even back to challenging himself.  

We first noticed over the weekend that Isaiah was trying to sit up a lot...

I had been sitting him in his Mickey couch quite a bit for snacks, and he'd get pretty mad when I'd pull him out of it to lay down on the floor to play....I kind of love that he is really loving being up.

Yesterday, he was feeling especially strong.  

As soon as I sat him in his high chair for breakfast, he was sitting up, no leaning on the back (except for a few short breaks).  He sat with his head up for the majority of breakfast- that was a first for him. 

And then, before I knew it, he was reaching to get his snack cup.  Reaching!  Pulling forward!!  It was amazing.

And then he did it all again this morning. :)

I should really put that vacuum away, huh? Or use it. ha

We're hopeful Isaiah will continue to push himself in this way so that it can become less and less of a challenge for him.  Hopefully we'll start to see this behavior later in the day as well.  And hopefully it's not hurting his back...

Isn't it great to see though?  We are so very proud of him.  <3
