Very exciting! He’s been doing this consistently for a few weeks. He used to hold his left arm curled up against his chest. This is brand-new. I’ve never seen him lift the left arm past his shoulder.
Aidan had a bit of a setback last summer, he fractured his tibia. It wasn’t a full fracture, he just a couple of small chips off the bone but its still called a fracture. He couldn’t weight bear and at first, recovery was slow. We went back to the pool and he immediately improved. We have been going to the poo all winter with good results. Here is a short video clip showing him jumping up independently in the pool.
I can’t believe a year has gone by since I updated Aidan’s website. It has been a very busy year for our family. Carina started school last April and she is loving it. In the summer of 2016, I also started school — studying to become a Spiral Praxis practitioner. Spiral Praxis is a new paradigm in the field of somatics and its the therapy Aidan has been doing for the last few years. Its a set of techniques designed to accelerate learning. The techniques can be used on anything from yoga to climbing to learning music. A really amazing tool set that can literally change lives. Check it out.
