Videos from Florida

Hi all. We're back safe and sound from our big Florida vacation. It was actually WAY better than I even imagined. I managed to get over the negative feelings from early on and we all had a fantastic time. I want to write a complete post about our Holiday, but for now I thought I'd upload a couple of videos of the boys jumping into the pool...their new favourite thing to do! As you can see, Ben preferred to keep his mouth WIDE open when jumping in. No matter how many times we told him to close his mouth, he'd just open it up even wider!

And here's a video of Ben at the Fort Myers airport as we waited for our flight (2-hour delay). I couldn't believe what he could do! To me, this video just shows how motivating Daniel is for Ben.


  1. that last video is amazing! i can't believe he can stand independently like that! amazing. lucy definitely is drake's biggest motivator too, but we aren't to standing like that yet. way to go, ben!

  2. Glad you guys had a great time. I love, love, LOVE that last video! I can just imagine how that must have felt to watch. :-)

  3. Wow! way to go Ben! Just as the first post said standing up independently is a high achievement! We are not there yet either but hopefully one day we will. The pool videos were just a riot! I def. believe the pool is one of the best therapies for the tightness in the muscles. Love to see him and Daniel having such fun!! Another great therapy that sometimes gets overshadowed by the not so fun therapies.

  4. Awww, that last one brought tears to my eyes! Way to go Ben. :)

  5. I love all 3 of the videos. It looks like it was a wonderful trip!

    And WOW for independent standing. We are just learning that now too and it is SO exciting.

  6. I'm here from Stacie's blog... loved your comment to her.

    That video of Ben copying Daniel is so amazing! You can see that he KNOWS he can do it, and gets such pure pleasure from success. That's the kind of thing that just melts your heart. Thanks for sharing.

  7. All video's are great.
    Love the water one's...don't you just love their little happy faces. Completely melted my heart!

    The last video so reminded me of Gage.
    Such determination, strength, such hero's.
