Nathan is now over the age of 24 months. (Gross motor development) He officially jumps off things – steps, the edge of the van & a toy. He started jumping off the bottom step yesterday & I nearly hit the ground I was so shocked! We’ve been waiting a very long time, trying to encourage without nagging, giving him lots of safe opportunities to jump, and then, without any fanfare, he JUMPS off the step.
I might be a little proud.
Ok, we even put his jump on our prayer list at church today as something we were happy about. I can’t believe that he has finally done it, 3 weeks before his school transition meeting. At least we have something to hold on to & celebrate as we wait to hear what else he is not doing.
Milestones. They mean everything when they are hard to accomplish.
