I captured video today of Jadon taking his rt. arm in his left hand and trying to push buttons with it. He has been picking up that arm with his left one more and more lately but this is the first time I had seen him do something like that. I could not believe it! He stood there long enough that I was actually able to get two different videos of him. You will have to excuse the arguing kids in the background. I was afraid if I told them to be quiet it would catch Jadon's attention and the moment would be gone.
By sharing our story and our experiences with this birth injury we will hopefully educate people. Knowledge is power. Our hope is that you will read this blog, share it with your friends, and they will share with their friends. Then in some small way we have prevented other families from having to go through what we have.

We are seeing more and more progress. It happens slowly but every little improvement is encouraging to us. One thing that really tickles me is when Jadon has something in his hand and wants to pick up something else. He will tuck a toy or his precious lovey under his injured arm so he can pick up the other toy. We were so impressed the first time we saw him do this. What a smart boy!! It has taken me forever to get a good picture to show you of Jadon doing this. He is usually too quick. Well, this morning I caught him as he was still waking up. He has his lovey in his hand and I handed him his morning tippy of milk. He tucked his lovey and took the tippy from me. Since he was enjoying his version of the morning cup of coffee he was still for a few minutes so I snapped away!
I also thought I would share a pictures of our kids with their Easter eggs. Jadon "helped". :) My husband called this picture "Three hams with eggs".
