Burton's 1st poop in the toilet:) I noticed he was pushing and I asked him if he had to poop. He shook his head "yes". Then I asked if he wanted to sit on the toilet. He shook his head "yes" so that's where we went.

We changed around Burton's walker. We took off all the accessories ( the chest pads and seat) because he was two foot pushing while sitting down. This way he's learning to walk the right way. He's still getting used to it but figuring it out.

Our latest trip to Magic Kingdom. Burton like this ride because he got to go on in his wheel chair. We love taking his wheel chair to disney because we get to cut to the front of the lines on some rides:)

Burton's in Jail.

He loves to play with the chairs when he's in his wheel chair or on his pony.

Burton after his EEG today, not a happy camper. He needed to be tired for it so he didn't get his nap and then they sedated him. He was mad when they woke him up, he only got to sleep about 20 min. Poor guy.

Burton has been doing Hippotherapy for 6 weeks now and loves it :) He gets so excited when we put him on the horse. The therapist command is "walk on" when she's ready and as soon as Burton's on he says "on" or after they stop to reposition him. He rides backwards and side saddle, they go through a water box and over a little bridge and he starts laughing. We see that this is helping him so much with his core muscles. He has 7 weeks left in this session. We're taking the summer off because it'll be too hot for him to be out doing it. Hopefully we'll have the $$$$ to do it again in the fall, our goal is to be able to do 2 sessions a year.

We've had some really nice weather here the last few weeks. Burton was able to get out and play in his sand box and enjoy his little pool. This morning he discovered the laundry basket and thought it was perfect to play in.
