Ok, so I finally got a very short video of Russell taking some steps...He is not the most co-operative child so it was difficult. Now he can take many more steps in a row than is seen here on the video and he does it by himself between furniture and stuff...But in our attempt to capture him taking steps on camera we had to "stage" the event...So this was the best we could get! lol
Notice how when he gets close enough to where he is going he will lung at it from way back instead of walking...Little stinker! We are trying to slowly build his confidence by making him go greater distances when taking steps. Its a slow process...But an exciting one!
My hopes for Russell walking remain the same.
I hope he will be walking by spring. His PT thinks he will be walking well before that time, but I don't want to get my hopes up.
He is taking steps, and it is fantastic and thrilling, so for now we are good with that and very proud of Russell and all his hard work!
And Russell's little friend is growing and getting bigger also...He is not walking quite yet either.
He still remains nameless...We will have to decide on one soon!
We brought him in from the barn the other day to visit Russell...At first he wasn't to sure what to think of his new friend.
But he warmed up to him.
He even touched him!
He was more gentle with his pup than he is with his baby cousin!
Hopefully this time next year these two will be running around playing together!
My boy. He is so darn cute!!
Notice his little boots...I bought them cause they are just like slippers so they are easy to put on if we are just walking across the field to visit my parents...
Well, Brad HATES these boots! He says they are to sissy!
Needless to say, I am quite certain these boots will mysteriously going missing in the near future.
What's with guys wanting their boys to be so rough and tumble?
I think Russell looks adorable in these boots and I could care less how "sissy" he looks!
