I have recently found it easier and less strain on my back to put Noah's braces on each morning by sitting him on the edge of the bed with his feet hanging off the side and then I sit down on the floor to put his braces on. All of the sudden recently when getting up, Noah started extending his hand to me to help me up. He really isn't strong enough to help me up but I said thank you and took his hand anyway and could feel him actually pulling and trying hard to help me up. It made my heart swell with pride and love for him. He is so tender and kind hearted. He now extends his hand to me (without prompting) every single morning and even though it's not actually helping, it's the thought that counts. He tries to help and more importantly to me as a Mother, he wants to help. Such a sweet, sweet boy!
