Let's Celebrate! Gavin is Sitting Up by Himself!

My son Gavin is 14 months old and has cerebral palsy on his left side. This means that his left hand, arm, and leg are weak, due to a brain injury.

Last night he was on his back and sat up completely! He did it the way that we have all be showing him. He rolled to his strong side and put his right arm out and BAM! I yelled for my husband and Gavin sat up five more times.

He woke up this morning and he's still doing it. We are so happy! Now, for the other side!!

  4. Hey cool!! My son has left sided cerebral palsy as well. He's 3 years old now. And, I remember when he learned to sit up by himself, too. It was SO exciting. I didn't know whether I shout for joy, or cry for joy. :) Yay for Gavin!
