Pulling up!

Brady has officially army crawled over to the bathtub and pulled himself up to a stand all by himself! He loves bathtime, but has to wait his turn since the boys can't bathe together with Jaxon's tube. Jax has to be bathed first since it takes so much longer to dress him, care for his tube and get him hooked up to the pump for the night. So Brady has usually played with me in the bathroom while Jax has his turn, but lately Brady is ready to climb in himself! I've been working with him learning how to push up off his knees and onto his feet, but all I've been creating is a baby trying to climb on ME.
Jaxon is starting to show interest in rolling onto his belly (he did it once) but of course only on his left side. He has a very hard time with his right side, which is the side affected by his torticollis. He'll be seeing the chiropractor for the 3rd time this week tomorrow. We're trying to get his neck re-aligned after all the heaving/vomiting he was doing in the past few days. He's getting better over night, but still working on daytime vomiting. The antibiotic is working though, we can definitely tell.

Brady's first unassisted pull to a stand!

Jax is telling Brady to back off because Brady wanted in!
Jax claps when you pour water on him!
Ahhh finally it's Brady's turn!

That is awesome! All day long the boys have been using me as their preferred method of pulling up. The Mommy Jungle Gym, and no one else will do it seems. And the fact that Jax is willing to roll from back to belly, even on his left only, is huge improvement. Evan is the same way and he will also prefer to roll from belly to back on his left as well, but will after much PT work go the other way if that's his only choice.
Sounds like you've had an explosion of developmental milestones in your house this week too! So happy for you!!
