Stander Sammy

Sammy decided to do some more standing on Sunday.  This was his longest stretch in the stander by far.  Usually he can go about 1-2 minutes before he gets uncomfortable.  For this session, he was upright for almost 15 minutes.  The video shows about half of that.

Nice job Sammy!

Sammy Stands!

Happy Easter everyone.  The Mazza boys are having a great time in their 16th month.  Yesterday they celebrated their Aunt Jamie’s birthday.  Today they went to see the Easter Bunny for the first time, and today Sammy got to stand for the first time, using some fancy technology.

The San RAmon Valley Unified School District provides various therapy and development programs for Sammy on a weekly basis.  Today his Physical Therapist, Dawn, came over and helped Sammy get into this contraption that looks a lot like a hospital gurney.  But once he’s strapped in, we can tilt him up and voila – Sammy can stand.  This is great progress for him as he continues to build strength in his body.  It’s important he gets the feeling of being upright on a regular basis, so I’m excited to see him do more of this.

Anyway, enjoy the pictures below!

Can you tell the boys are excited to meet the Easter Bunny?  These are their Easter outfits that Kristen bought.  And no, Sammy’s left foot isn’t broken.  His shoe is just turned around!

Aunt Jamie turned…uh… 29 on Wednesday.  The boys helped her celebrate.
