Benjamin

Benjamin has been doing so well with his physio. Today we went to the Fraser Valley Child Development (FVCD) centre and he went on the treadmill. How they do this: they suspend him in a harness above the treadmill and then Kim (his physiotherapist) & I move his feet in the walking motion. At times he would even move them by himself. Then we had to show Kim how he has been doing the walking motion by himself when we hold him up. She was very impressed. We tried keeping him in the harness and letting him try walk by himself. AND HE DID IT!!!!!! I was so excited since that was the first time he has really done it all by himself. I wish I had brought my camera along. I'll have to remember it next week.

Here are a few pictures of Benjamin standing by our fridge by himself playing with the magnets. He even let go at one point.
