The other day, the city came around to trim some trees. Austin could not see what they were cutting on the other side of our hedge (it is really tall) so he got on his swing and started to move his legs back and forth to make it go. This is HUGE for Austin! We have been trying for a long time to get him to do this, it has been really, really tough for him to master that coordination. I was so PROUD of him and I almost started to cry! I know that sounds really silly but seriously, it really touched my heart.
I asked him later how he figured it out and he said he just wanted to see the men cut the trees and that was the only way he could. It doesn't really matter why really, I was only curious to know why all of sudden he could swing by himself. He LOVES to play on the swing and it is nice to see a big smile on his face.
*HUGS* to all! :)
