This morning, Sy's Physical Therapist brought out a walker for him to test drive. I admit I was a little skeptical. Sylas doesn't really like trying to walk holding on to our hands and he really doesn't like walking behind push toys. He's also very interested in the mechanics of things and I was sure that the wheels of the walker would be more fascinating than actually walking.
I was wrong.
Our little Bug was intrigued from the moment he laid eyes on his new wheels. Before he even knew what the walker was, he started calling it a "tractor." Since moving to Wisconsin, Sylas has a new found love of tractors, so of course he wanted to try out his new tractor. In no time, he was cruising around the wood floors like he's been doing it his whole life.
As hard as I try, I don't think I can put into words the joy that has filled my heart today. To see my son, who once weighed a mere 15 ounces, walk, is breathtaking.
I am in awe of what God has done.
