"Once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do.
God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows what we know,
and holds us responsible to act." Prov 24:12

Video Update 3

These videos are to show the ways in which Bowen gets himself up and down on his own.  He used to require help when he needed to get up or down but throughout this last year, he has figured out that he can use just about anything to get himself into the position he wants to be.  He will use the couch, his bed, a bookshelf, someone's legs... the list goes on and on.  We are also in the process of applying for a service dog for Bowen.  One of the things the dog will be able to do is provide bracing support for him to get into the positions he wants which will be wonderful!  That means wherever he is at, he will always have a way to get up & down!  Here a few examples of how he does that right now...

How Bowen uses a piece of furniture to get himself down and how he gets me a block to help build a tower.

 How Bowen uses a person's leg to get himself up.

How Bowen uses a person's leg to get himself down & getting me a another block.

And just one more for fun... Bowen showing off his knock it down skills with a giant tower we built.  One of his favorite games!

Video Update 2

Bowen has mastered going up and down the stairs in our house on his own! Here is how he gets down the stairs going to our basement. He really wanted to help me with the laundry so he made his way down.  He is usually faster than this but he knew I was filming him so he decided to take his own sweet time getting down.  Typical!

Video Update 1

I have decided to do a few video posts the next few weeks just to give everyone a little glimpse of what Bowen is doing... all the things he has accomplished lately!  Here is the first one, well three actually.  It's language arts day and Bowen is going to show you how well he does with his ABC's, 123's & shapes!
