A Little Something Extra

Look, ma!


All of a sudden last night, Micah seemed to "get it." He figured out that he could put his hands on his knees and prop with them to sit (he can't put them on the ground... his arms are so short he ends up at a 45-degree angle). He wasn't doing his typical smiling last night. You could tell he was concentrating hard. I'm so proud of him!
Sorry the video is so dark. My laptop is in the repair yard (aka my brother's house) and we don't have video editing software on the spare computer.

YAY Micah! Just waiting for the right moment huh? Shorter arms (and legs) does make balancing harder, way to problem solve!

Micah! Way to go! I am so proud of you! There are so many more toys that you'll be able to play with now. And, don't worry, it gets easier every day and your arms learn the protective reflexes pretty quickly. I hear that you might be down in Atlanta this spring. I hope that I get to finally meet you in person. Take care and great job!

Love,
Bennett Harper

Yay Micah!! It always seems like when you're just at the end of your frustration rope (parents) that kids think, hmmm, maybe I should just go ahead and do that trick. LOL!
