Literally.  Two steps forward.  ALEX TOOK HIS FIRST STEPS!!!!!!! 

His PT was here this morning, and his entire group of Early Intervention people (OT, PT, EI Coordinator, Nurse, Dietician) were here for a lunchtime evaluation, and boy did Alex show off!  He started by standing on his own for a long time with Ginny this morning, something he's been doing a little of, but not too much.  Then, she brought out a toy that he likes and he took a couple of steps to get to her and the toy.  Then, at lunch, with everyone there, he was seriously flaunting this newfound ability.  He took at least four steps once, and was just the cutest little man he could be.

So, he's now going down to PT once per week, and we're going to start weaning his night feeds a bit to see if we can increase his eating even more.  And you'd better believe that Dan and I are going to testing this walking thing as much as possible!

Oh, and Aunt Abby...guess whose very colorful outfit Alex was wearing for the very first time for his very first steps?

Look out world, he’s up on his toes! If you haven’t baby-proofed, get on it!
For parents, kids walking is a novelty! 4 months from now you’ll wonder why you ever wanted him to walk, LOL

You know it was because of the outfit that he walked!
I am so proud of my wonderful nephew.
