I have been trying to get Grayden to clap for the longest time now. Up until today he would put his hands together if I asked him to clap; however he would keep his hands fisted or he would bang two objects together. Well today, out of nowhere he started clapping while we were at therapy. We weren't even prompting him and now he has been doing it all night!!
I guess he didn't think the clapping skill was good enough for today, so he also learned how to get himself out of a sitting position. Anat always talks about how the most optimal movements are those that are reversible and if you can go one way, you should be able to go the other way with ease. Although, he should really get into sitting before he learns to get out of it, it is still fun to see him do this because I'm hoping it means getting into sitting won't be far behind!! (Also, I don't put him in sitting very often because we really try to keep him in positions he can get himself into, but he learned how to do this anyway!)
And this one is just for giggles. I can never have enough of those!!
