Eon has been standing from the floor independently for awhile. He's even picking things up from the floor while standing and unfastening his shoes. However, he only does it at home. I think he's too busy checking out the sights when we go somewhere.
That changed at VBS the other night, however. He was crawling around the church foyer playing with some kids while I was talking to some friends. I heard someone say, "Wow! Look at Eon." I glanced over and saw him standing in the middle of the room with a big grin on his face. Several other people noticed and exclaimed over him. I even had a quite a few people tell me about it later. They were all grinning and obviously excited for him.
It occurred to me that all of his typical peers started walking in the last few months and no one seemed to notice. It was a complete non-event to everyone except the parents. Eon stands once in public and causes quite a stir. Everyone notices and cheers.
We are blessed to be part of such a caring group of people who love our son and celebrate his abilities with us!
