Christopher is clapping!




I am so excited! Christopher just turned 11 months old and he has started to clap. It is a little different clap, he holds his left arm close to his body, holds out his hand and then pats it with his right hand. We have been working so hard to get him to clap since his 9 month check up. It's difficult for Christopher to move his left hand because he has hemiplegia (paralysis or weakness on one side of the body).
