"Look what I can do!"



Joshua using his walker. Crawling is still his preferred mode of transportation because it is much faster, but now that he has discovered how fun it is to "crash" into things, he is using his walker a lot more!



Evan uses a mouth stick to count and sort and to press buttons on the computer. Here he is counting the teddy grahams for the valentines that he made for his preschool class.



Evan LOVES to play with cars. Occasionally he will sit and use his hands to play, but when he REALLY gets into it, he will lay down and use his mouth. Note how well he uses his mouth to maneuver things. Also note how he uses one hand to move them other when moving the cars into position with his hands. It really is fascinating to watch him!

Your boys are just precious!! And amazing! My kiddos with AMC are affected differently. I love watching other kids and how they adapt! You are doing a fabulous job, Valerie!!

omg I am just STUNNED at Evans speech and Joshuas walking!! It is incredible how you have taught them to be ABLE, capable, just kids. I am so impressed, especially with Evans speech. Hard to imagine him in that crib so long, alone. what a gift you all are to one another.
Does Evan use a touch screen for the computer? I am going to be doing a giveaway on my blog very soon, and working on a touch screen to give away. If I get it, you need to enter. :) I would be so tickled to see him win it.

I know it's been a while since you posted this, but I had always meant to comment on these videos!!! Evan and Joshua are AMAZING!! They are doing so well. I especially loved watching Evan move the teddy grams with the stick/brush in his mouth - was that a paint brush? He did so well, and I love how he just had to move that crumb. Reminded me so much of my Ethan! It would be so neat to see what kind of artwork Evan can do someday with a paint brush. Already he seems to have so much precision and control!!! Thanks again for sharing this. Love you guys!

You have 2 through-and-through little boys there (I'm sure your other 2 are classic mischief makers as well) ! I love how Joshua used his walked as a battering ram- what a stinker. And Evan's such a smart lil' guy! I loved watching him with the cars... you can just see it- nothing will stand in their way. I'm SO glad to know you and your sweet family :)
