Cerebral Palsy does NOT define Jame
I wanted to share a picture update and let you celebrate with me all the wonderful progress my Grandson James has made in the past few months. We measure each milestone in inches rather than miles. However, Mr. James is showing all of us he is determined to be a typical little pre-school boy with all the joy and enthusiasm that only James can display!
James deserves a Big Gold Star!

Spiderman likes to shop too
James and Daddy play Guitar Hero
James taking Therapeutic Horse Back Riding lessons
He just thinks it's fun! PaPaw is looking to buy a pony just for James!
James' ability to sit up, keep balanced, and use his arms and hands is major progress!
Oh, the simple movements you and I take for granted!
Here he is standing with walker and balances with left hand while pushing elevator button with right hand!!
I love his Chef's attire...Woodie on the Patootie
underwear which means James is 95% potty trained during the day!!
Think about how difficult it would be to potty train a child that can't walk or stand independently!
It's a work-out for me to try and hold him up while pulling his undies up & down. He can hold on to the sink nowadays with pretty good success while his underwear is maneuvered. He's telling us he has to go potty...whoop whoop!!!
James is in the green trunks. Can you tell who the child is with CP???
He looks like all the other little boys in the pool!
Blow bubbles James!! Good Job!
James requested I take his picture from this angle!
I had parked myself in the shade...thank you very much!
This gal doesn't sit in the sun!
Ice Cream makes any day brighter especially for little boys.
This is a picture of James' awesome parents; who move heaven and earth every day making sure James has every advantage possible in their goal of giving James a life well loved!
After-all, isn't that what we all want in the end?
