Aly reached another milestone today!! She stood on her own for close to a minute. Yay! And guess what? I was there to witness it, right in front of her, clapping and cheering her on, while she beamed proudly at me. Double yay!
It just happened. One moment she was holding on to her walker, the next moment she let go of her hand. We kept really quiet at the beginning because everytime she realised she was standing on her own, she will collapse into a heap. I attributed it to a confidence issue. But after a while, she was smiling at us and we decided to just clap for her and go “wowwwwww!” This time, she made the decision to bask in the attention and stood still for a really long time (“long time” is to be taken in context).
Good job Aly! I’m so proud of you! 🙂
