Yesterday for the first time Sam pulled to stand and walked to the middle of the room with no prompting... he did it just because. No one was encouraging him, no one was saying "here Sam...walk to me Sam",...nope he just decided that he wanted to walk and he did. I about fell off my chair and Andrew was screaming at the top of his lungs. We have been working on "walking" for a very very long time...years in fact... all the while knowing that Sam would walk when Sam was good and ready to walk. He is soooo close and I almost feel the need to hold my breath... this is so huge. Below is a video from his physical therapy session this morning...just look at him go. Fingers crossed, Sam will be an official full-time walker by his 6th birthday. Way to go Sam!
