Earlier, I posted videos of Malachi prop sitting for a full minute and also commando crawling around on his beloved new alphabet mat. And yesterday, I posted a full description of the many changes I saw in Malachi during our fourth trip to the Anat Baniel Method Center in California.
Today I have something really special. As I watched Malachi crawl around a few days ago, I remembered a video I tried to take for a very generous friend who sent us a new iPad for Malachi. I had wanted to show how the iPad was enough of a motivating force for Malachi to inch forward. And it was, but the video is so sad. Malachi looks more like a man dying of thirst crawling towards an oasis than a self-motivated and empowered little boy, so I decided not to send it.
But perhaps I took that video for a useful and joyful purpose after all. See for yourself:
The first video was taken Aug. 6, a couple weeks after returning from our third trip to the ABM Center.
This one was taken Sept. 16, a couple weeks after returning from our fourth trip.
This seems to me a remarkable difference in little more than a month. What do you think?
