Go Brayden go

 
Today we checked off an exciting milestone! Brayden may not be crawling, but he is officially "scooting" to wherever he wants to go! I thought he had been doing this before his hospital stay, but he wasn't going very far. Tonight he finally proved he can do it......
 
 
He scooted all the way over to momma from where I put him with his toys while I did some scrapbooking. Scapbooking you say? I have never been crafty at all, but having a terminally ill child brings out all kinds of weird things in you! Anyways, the point of this blog is to announce that Brayden is in fact "mobile" without the assistance of a walker or his gait trainer!!!!! He is also initiating "peek a boo" himself which is a big milestone as well.....
 
As he continues to do new things, I desperately hope that means his tumor is stable, but I also know that he has always been doing new things with this tumor growing in his brain. I wish there was a manual for having a baby with a brain tumor. Most of the time I want time to stop completely so I can enjoy Brayden forever just as he is. The other times I desperately want it to be time for next MRI so I will know if the treatment is working. Not knowing what the future holds is a very difficult thing, and I do my best not to think about it. However, on nights like tonight when he does something new I am forced to wonder how many milestones he will have the opportunity to "check off"......
