Just Love!

This week there was only love :)  On Monday, Samuel had his first real therapy session at the same PT place I mentioned in the last post... and in addition to the walker, he also got to try a special bicycle!  It has straps to hold in his feet, foot and hand pedals, and helps with mapping the motion of walking.  George has ridden this bike before too, but when I saw Samuel on that bike today I almost cried.  Today, it was only feelings of pure joy!  Not only did he love it, he looked like such a bit boy.  Woo Hoo!

Again, I wish he had the smile to show his enthusiasm :)  Samuel loved this bike! 
In fact, when it was time to get off, he wouldn't.  Go Samuel!

I also want to pass along thanks to Debbie, who has been George's PT since mid November.  She is moving away at the end of the month, so today was George's last session with her.  He will still have PT, but will start with a new therapist next week.  We are sad to see her go!  But, we have big plans to reunite in the future, we're positive that George and her baby girl will hit it off  :)  Ha ha!

Since I'm on the subject, I also have two other therapy thanks to give... one is really old, and the other is new.  The first is to Hannah, who was George and Olivia's Speech Therapist from July '10 - February '11.  She was wonderful!  I think graduation from speech came closely after the pronunciations of "prone stander" and "pulmozyme" :)

The second is very recent, to Monte, who was Samuel's home PT from July '10 - June '11.  In this time period Samuel has gone from stuck on his back, to crawling, and now to cruising.  YEA!
This photo also from February :)

Finally, a big kudos to my beautiful Olivia, who attends all therapies but doesn't get to play with the stuff :)  Poor kid.  Although, she does love her alone time with mommy, or daddy, or Rachel, in the waiting room!  Such a trooper!
