Check Out The Results Of 15 Months Of Treadmill Therapy!

It’s hard to believe it’s been 15 months since Noah’s physical therapist first put him on a treadmill to help him learn to walk! Man, time really does fly.

It’s amazing how far Noah has come since we first started, and how well he can walk after just 15 months of treadmill therapy. We’re obviously huge fans of treadmill therapy and our son is a living testimony that treadmill therapy for kids really works!

5 Benefits Of Using A Therapy Dog When Learning To Walk

When Noah was born one of the fist things someone said to me “There’s never been a better time in the history of the world for someone to be born with Down syndrome!” I think that’s a fantastic (and true) quote, and I couldn’t agree more. There are so many resources (and research) available today to help children with Down syndrome reach their full potential, all of which will only continue to grow as we head into the future. So that quote will continue to be more true as time goes on.

How awesome!

cute baby dancing in car seat down syndrome

It’s A Dance Party In The Back Seat!

One of my favorite things about our little boy is how much he likes to dance! I absolutely love it, and could honestly watch him do it all day. What’s really funny is much of a hip-hop fan he is. I’m not kidding!

If a hip-hop song is on (in this case, Kris Kross) he’ll dance his little face (and feet!) off and when it’s over, or if I change the station or turn the volume down he’ll say “more” “more “more” until I turn it back on!

It’s seriously the. cutest. thing. ever!

4 Activities to Help Your Child Stand On Their Own

We’re proud to announce that Noah reached another major milestone toady…standing up on his own! Most children actually stand on their own (without help from people or objects, which he has been able to do for a while) before taking their first steps, but not our little guy! In fact, we recently posted a video of him trying to stand on his on, but not quite being able to.  This is probably due to his desire to be moving rather than stand still. Kids are going to achieve their milestones in their own time and in their own order which is fine by me, why follow the “rules.”
