He Did It!!!!

I can hardly contain myself and write this.  MJ tied shoelaces today during therapy!!!! He did it twice.  Of course it wasn’t in front of me! His therapist told me that even she had to walk away before he finally did it by himself. She had him take a bow in front of the other kids/ therapists and really made it exciting for him.  She gave him a toy from the “treasure box” and he played with it the entire ride home.  He said “mommy, I did my best.” All I could do was smile and give him a thousand hugs and kisses.  When we asked him to tie it again, he couldn’t or rather wouldn’t do it.   Nevertheless I’m thrilled and a celebration is in order.  Woo hoo!
