First Steps

Lately Carson has developed a strong desire to be on his feet more. More than ever he is cruising along furniture to get to his destination instead of dropping to the floor to crawl there. One of his favorite activities is walking back and forth from the couch to me, or between Nate and I. Currently he uses his sticks (fore-arm crutches) to get around and he is doing very well with them. Obviously these primitive steps are just the beginning. We hope that with his determination and hard work he will be able to turn these steps into walking independently. Regardless, we are so proud of him!

THAT IS AMAZING! Truly such a wonderful accomplishment! That is EXACTLY if not BETTER than Jet did when he first took his first steps - hands high in the air falling into our arms. :) A wonderful start. GO Carson GO!
