Joey finally did it! On April 7, 2010, he sat up all by himself for the first time. And he did it in grand fashion! We were at the Occupational therapists office being evaluated for occupational therapy. The therapist was going through the list of gross motor skills and fine motor skills and making notes at which skills Joey has, or has yet to acheive. I was explaining to him that no Joey has not yet sit up, without leaning on at least a hand, on his own. Joey was on a floor mat in front of us, being run through various tests like a lab rat. As the therapist was crossing out the section of his form that listed various activities from the sitting position, Joey all of a sudden pushed himself backwards and into a sit position and then sat all the way up and clapped his hands. It was as if he was saying "liar" look at me! He sat so very straight and clapped like he was so proud of himself. I almost cried. I was so proud of him and stoked! We have been waiting for this day for a long time! We were finally able to break out the "I Did It" tee shirt we ordered from Jen. I ordered one back in August when she first came up with the campaign but was saving it for this very milestone.
