MY DAUGHTER, SKYLAR DAVIS, POSTED THIS ON FACEBOOK YESTERDAY MORNING---MANY CHILDREN WITH 1-P36 DELETION SYNDROME NEVER WALK, AND HAVE EXTREMELY LIMITED COGNITIVE SKILLS---OUR LITTLE EDDIE JETT IS A RULE-BREAKER. ONE SMALL STEP FOR MOST FIVE YEAR OLDS...ONE BIG STEP FOR EDDIE JETT!
IN TEARS!!! Eddie just did such a big boy thing for me!! I was putting Anna's shoes on and realized one was missing, and I remembered Eddie had it in the bathroom earlier so I showed him the one I had and said "Will you bring me the other one? It's in the bathroom, go grab it and bring it back!". He looked puzzled for a second, then a little light lit up in his eyes, and he took off running to the bathroom! He was in there about a minute when I decided he got distracted like usual and just gave up, and just when I was about to get up to go get it myself, he came trotting down the hall with the proudest smile on his face and Anna's little pink shoe in his hand, arm extended out to me :D I just started yelling and praising him, he was sooooo excited that he just kept taking it back and handing it to me so I'd clap and yell all over again! I know your little ones learned to do this sort of thing when they were 2, but I've waited 5 long years and I am proud as punch!! I know he won't consistently do this type of thing for me, but it's a start, and a very big one at that ♥ — with Jody French.
