Subject: YEAH! YEAH! HOORAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Woo Hoo!!!!!!! We have had a five star night!!!!!!! Alex decided to walk tonight!!!!!! Oh my gosh I am so excited!!!! My ten year old was hollering at me...hey mom look at Alex while I was trying to get ready to take him to physical therapy. I was like...ok but it better be good, I am in a hurry. (he has a tendency to want to show me everything! He was the little kid that would pick his nose when he was 2 and then HAD to show it to me) So I turn around and look into the living room only to see my little six year old angel trucking towards me all by his self!!!!!!!!!!!! I started bawling hysterically!!!!!!! When he got to me I picked him up and sobbed till he wiggled out of my arms and took off again!!!! And he has been all over the place...I even had a a millisecond where I wondered who's idea it was to teach this kid to walk! (I told him it was time for bed and he looked right at me and walked over to the patio door and let him self outside to play with the puppy.) He also tryed to walk away from me while I was dressing him after pool therapy....here we are walking through the dressing room with me trying to button his shirt.....no way I was letting him stop!!! I was too excited that he was walking!!!! Anyhow, I am on cloud nine!!!! I just hope he doesn't forget while he is sleeping tonight!!!!!!! He did this once before but I was out of town on a business trip and I missed and no one videotaped it or anything. (I videotaped it tonight) But, last time, his aide at school let him walk independently without being near him on asphalt and he wiped out and skinned his nose so he was afraid to walk up till tonight! Anyhow but we were really cautious tonight when we were anywhere near pavement! Oh my, I am just babbling now...I am just so excited! Well, had to share this with all of you!!!!! Hope ya'll had a great day too!!!! I gotta get some sleep now...been up since 4:30AM!! Ugh!! Gnite!
