He’s a walking man

July 12, 2008

The biggest news in the world of IT Boy is his progress in walking.  He’s gone from cruising, and taking steps around the furniture, to walking distances, and now getting up on his own in the middle of the room and taking off.  It’s been a joy to see, going from wondering if he would ever walk to seeing him do it to chasing after him (he’s not really that fast, nor am I that slow, but still…)  His gait is not perfect – he tends to turn his feet inward (pronate?  prorate?  something) and he looks a little bowlegged.  His PT is wondering if he might need braces around his ankles to give him some support, but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.  He’s up to 11 sessions of his various flavors of therapy per week.  It’s a lot, but progress is being made. 

I always said that before I had kids, when I would fantasize about what it was like to have a kid, one of my visions was always walking around holding the hand of my child.  It happened quickly with Little IT, and IT Boy certainly took his time, but it’s been every bit as rewarding.

    Hurray! That’s wonderful! I guess I should have taken so long writing my comment on your Over the Speed Bump post 🙂

    Congratulations, IT Boy! How wonderful and this news has completely made my day. Addison started out turning her foot when she walked but it went away shortly after I called the doctor and insisted he take a look at her 🙂

    Go IT Boy, go!
