a trick up his sleeve

Progress with Bugg has always been slow.
I got used to it.
Maybe a bit too used to it.
Therapy was just discouraging for me and he despised it, too.
I decided to love my special boy just as he was
and I fully accepted him and his disabilities.
Therefore, therapies and pushing him to do more
But then just recently,
we've seen him scootching backwards
and doing crunchies.
And then standing.
And now........

What in the world?!
When did this happen?
It's like Christmas around here!!!

The other night,
I was getting Bugg dressed into his PJs.
I sit him up and pull his shirt off over his head.
Then I help him fall backward.
But on this night, he didn't fall.
He just sat there.
Like a pro.
For 5 looooooong seconds!

I know he gets lots of therapy at school
but THIS!
It's like Bugg was saving it up for this moment
to just blow me out of the water
and say, "Mama! Surprise!"

And then ever so slowly,
he rolls backward into a crunchie,
catching his head just before he hits the carpet.
Like a pilates pose.
That kid.
The miracle worker continues!
And PS: he's up to 2 minutes now.
