Wilson captured a MAJOR milestone in Rudy’s development on video this afternoon…CRAWLING! I remember being “wowed” when the big sibs all learned to crawl as babies but I still took it for granted…it’s something Rudy has been working on in physical therapy for years!!! He doesn’t quite have the strength to hold his head up yet but he definitely has the concept down. Check him out…
In addition to crawling, Rudy has mastered pulling himself up to the standing position and cruising along the couch or around our bed…he is busy with a capital “B” and we’re all spending a good bit of our day cleaning up after the tornado that is Rudy when he is let loose to explore from this new vantage point! Both crawling and cruising are significant in the process of learning how to walk unsupported and at the rate he’s going right now, I have a good feeling it won’t be long before he takes those first independent steps!!! Go, Rudy, Go!!!
Rudy has also shown great improvement in his speech. He’s highly motivated by music and LOVES to sing which certainly helps promote speech! He’s got a pretty high pop/rock music IQ for a 4 year old thanks to the big sibs…Max has posted a series of fun music videos they’ve made together on Facebook…

We’ve even caught him at the computer singing along with Adele (and, of course, Mama’s got him singing classic Amy Grant!). Let the music blast and the progress be measured in whatever means possible! We take great delight in each and every step forward!!!
