Jumpin Jumpin Jumpin!!!

Ryan has discovered the joy of bouncing! About 3 months ago I purchased a Merry Muscles jumper for him. It was developed by a PT so its better for their joints / muscles than regular jumpers and is slightly inclined so will support his head. Well it didn't work out so well at the start, he cried to get out and would fling himself over the side to avoid being upright. We tried again this week and hes a totally different baby in it now. He now LOVES bouncing and has a big smile on his face when in it. Hes learning to use his legs to bounce and turn around so this will help him bear weight, and when I held him up on the floor the other day he bounced a few times whereas normally he barely bears any weight, his legs would be like limp noodles.
Oh and thats the new place for his fingers at all times, he getting his molars on both sides poor kid.

Also some pics of Ryan with his therapist Susan working on sitting. They are all very pleased with his progress at the moment.
