Just a quick post to announce…
BRAXTON IS OFFICALLY CRAWLING!!!!!
Soooo exciting!! I sat him down and next thing I know he crawled FORWARD over to a nearby toy. I moved him back and watched him do it again. I did it at least 5 times hahah I am so incredibly proud of little man! Sent the video to his speech and PT and PT supervisor and they’re all so proud of him too.
What a great day!
Messages from all of Brax’s therapists on his new milestone 🙂
I know I’ve said this before, but Braxton is making significant strides toward becoming mobile. So exciting for us and him! He is fully able to get himself sitting from laying down on his back, rolling both ways, he can get himself in to a crawling position either from laying or sitting, he can even get himself back into a sit from a crawling position! He’s definitely mastered the crawling backwards which is developmentally the correct order he should be doing things. That means forward crawling isn’t far away! We’ve been able to get him to crawl forward a few “steps,” and you can see in his face he knows what to do, but he just can’t seem to communicate that to his big ol’ thighs to move forward haha So just backward movement for now. It’s great though, to be able to see him get from point A to point B with intent. I even caught him trying to pull himself up on the couch to stand. He got as far as kneeling then didn’t know where to go from there. Uh-oh, he’s reading to run. I can’t wait! 🙂 I forgot what it was like to have a mobile little one running around since big sis is 6 now. Lay Brax down, go to the kitchen to get his feed ready, come back 5 minutes later and he’s on the other side of the room haha, I love it! He’s getting pretty quick at rolling and scooting backwards. For a kid who wasn’t supposed to make it out of the hospital, he’s come so far and is doing so great. Extremely proud of our little man. Keep it up, Braxton!!

First time I caught Brax reaching up to try and get himself up
Look at me, Mom!
Pulled himself up to a kneel, thinking about standing
Reaching for the couch, tongue out and everything
Brax loves to lift up like he’s about to bear crawl across the room
Crawl, reach, kneel 🙂
And we’re off!!! Ok, not really, but he’s sooooo close!! Braxton is just absolutely determined to get up and get going. He’s able to get himself up to all fours and rock back and forth. He’s just started picking his hands up and trying to move them forward. I’ve even caught him pushing up from his feet like he wants to stand up or something. Dad saw him get from all fours back to a sitting position! That’s HUGE!! So far, just scooting around backwards and sideways and rolling around for now, but developmentally that is right on track. He’s behind developmentally, but he is still doing everything in order, and that’s a good thing. Any day now, I’m sure I’ll be back to report that he’s taken off. Until then we sit and wait!
