The Twins are Sitting Up!

Parker and I were both present at the twins last physical therapy session and the most amazing thing happened. The girls were able to sit on their own! As you can see from the picture, there were pillows surrounding them so they could brace themselves with their arms when they got a little off balance. You will also see Mandy's hand and the therapist hand helping to hold their heads up, they are still working on strengthening the girls necks. We were all overcome with emotion. At first I thought it was just me getting emotional because of the pregnancy but as I looked at Mandy and the therapist, we were all a little teary eyed. I don't think words could express the joy we all felt as the girls sat on their own.

The therapist now wants to work on laying them down and having them use their own strength to get into sitting position (they have to be put into a sitting position in order to sit up). This is a huge step forward for the twins. They will become more independent and potentially more mobile. We are so excited for the twins and their parents. A lot of effort has gone into them being able to make it this far.
