Thankful Thursday: Braxton is Walking!

Yes, you read that title correctly! Braxton is making amazing progress with walking.  I picked him up from daycare the other day and his teacher said, “Look what your son is doing!” She grabbed him by one hand and he started WALKING with her!!!! I quickly came to my senses and said “No, no, waaiiitt! I have to get this on video!” And here you go:

Yayyyyyy!!!! We’ve been walking him around at home a little more and his teacher told me today that they make him walk everywhere.  They are so patient with him and if he takes longer than the other kids, it’s totally okay! I am soooo sooo thankful for this incredible accomplishment.  I’ve cried lots of happy tears.  With every milestone, I think back to the hospital in the first few days of Braxton’s life and think how the doctor’s didn’t even give him but a few weeks to live and here he is rolling, sitting, crawling, standing, and finally walking.  First steps are always awesome, but when everyone counted your child out before he even had a chance, first steps are a miracle.  I take nothing for granted. Braxton has worked so hard and continues to do so each and every day.  His hard work is definitely paying off and I am so incredibly proud of Braxton.

So is his sister. Aileen drew a congratulatory card for Braxton after I showed her the video of him walking.

Such a proud sister <3

Such a proud sister ❤

And if that wasn’t enough, today, they channeled their superhero powers and practiced together. ❤

Some serious @tinysuperheroes work going on! Super Sidekick Aileen helping Super Braxton walk!
