Awesome Therapy Day

Tyler did awesome in therapy today. The first 30 minutes of therapy he is on "land" and the second half is in "water". Or you can also call the "water", aquatic therapy. Tyler worked hard for Ms. Jenny on land but he really impressed Cory in the pool. Tyler was kicking his legs non-stop and even when his time was up and he was out of the pool he was still kicking. And of course Tyler thought that was funny!

He also did some sit-ups in the pool. Cory would have Tyler sitting in his lap and bring him down to a laying position and Tyler would pull up all by himself holding Cory's hands and was using a lot of his core muscles. Cory also was not supporting Tyler's head this entire time, and Tyler was keeping his chin tucked and not throwing it back (which he does quite often). So that was awesome.

Since he had an awesome day in therapy, I thought I would add a picture of Tyler sitting on his new bench he got for Christmas. He sits on it so nicely, if I say so myself :)

Aqua therapy is the best. Burton's been doing it for about a year now and loves it. I think I have some video on our blog of it.
