Happy New Year!
I seem to be suffering from writer's block and can't think of anything exciting to post about. Recently Barbara's little Right-Hemi Bennett started walking on his own. Seeing his cute videos made me think about how excited we were when Austin started walking. The above video link (it's about 2 minutes long) was taken after Thanksgiving in 2005 so he had turned 2 about a month earlier. Amazingly he hadn't even been walking with assistance until that summer as he just wouldn't pick up those little legs. It was quick work once he decided he wanted to be upright. He could get anywhere by first back scooting and later butt scooting. I wish I had video of that, because that was just a neat yet strange sight to see. He always wore out his booty left pockets because he favored his left butt cheek. Austin still has struggles but my goodness to know how much worse things could have been and how far he has come just makes my heart sing.
