Andrew doing his first #StandingBridge . When ever we wanted to get into knee flexion and hip extension, we needed to lay him down and perform #WallSquats Yesterday was the first day he was able maintain knee flexion in a standing position. I was able to get some hip/lumbar and t spine extension off of the knee flexion but the second attempt he started to fatigue and go to his kyphotic curve. We're going to keep working on this. Much thanks to his father , Bob, for keeping up with his progress at home. We couldn't have gotten here without that. Andrew is adapting to the obstacles we put in front of him. Every obstacle we challenge him with has no fluff and is with the intention to strengthen the details.
The more connections he makes, the more he trusts himself and listens to my cues. First month:unresponsive to cues but was coming to me with a new action or movement that brought us closer to this point......4 months later: Andrew is responding to cues with out Dad's help and trusting himself to feel for more connections. This is a learning process for Andrew, Bob, and myself. A learning process that I fall in love with every time I see improvement. He knows exactly what my intentions are and seeing that light him up energizes me. He often says "show Bobby!" referring to his older brother who comes to visit and check on Andrew's progress. When the intent is pure , the fun is pure. I'm very lucky to be working with Andrew and the Jones family. Thank you to #FunctionalPatterns for allowing me to create a real passion with a real sense of purpose. @themyohacker @functionalpatterns @functionalpatternsatx
