abe getting stronger

Abe gave an exceptional performance yesterday a.m in OT. He was using big brother Hill as his stairs! (I tried several times to edit to make it shorter, but couldn't get it to work)

He was super determined and not nearly as miserable as some of the faces he managed to make. Pay special attention to his left leg and arm. It takes so much to get them to move, but every time that he does- new connections are happening!

Thank you Mickey, Hill, Wick, Issy and Avery for all of your help. :) We are so proud of this little guy. Keep praying- we SEE Him working daily.

Huddy was cracking up at him laying on Hill's head! I found myself pushing with him and cheering, "C'mon, Abe. You can do it!" We love that boy!

Ok, I'm very annoyed because I've come on here several times today to see this video and I get nothing but "buffering" for like ten minutes.... Ugh!

I'll keep trying, I'm sure it's amazing and I'm dying to see Abe in motion!

Ahhhh.....

Tymm said...

Abe, Abe, Abe!

Man we love you!! What an inspiring video! I'd say you have no idea what a wonderful family you have - but you probably do!

You guys always brighten our day - I can't wait to show Meron that video!!

We're rooting for you here in Atlanta Abey!!

May the everlasting treasures of His promises continue to softly fall from Heaven to your heart enfolding, blessing, and warming you with Hope!

May He multiply your joy, provide bountiful rest, draw you closer to Him daily as brings new connectors to Abe's body! May we continue to revel in His mysterious ways and rejoice in His perfect plan for this little man and his family! How we rejoice with you in God's displaying Himself in and through Abe! What a precious gift!

What a beautiful reflection of our living Lord your family is to all He places in your path. And, how precious Abe and his family are greatly loved and treasured by the Most High God!

What a determined little guy! Praying for him! I added a playlist to my blog with several of my favorite worship songs. As Abe made it over Hill, Mighty to Save was playing along with your Rocky music. God is Mighty to Save sweet Abe!

Oh Emily! I am in tears watching. Abe's courage and determination are such a great reminder for all of us of how we should climb the "hills" before us.

Something tells me two things...
