Let me introduce to you Captain Independent, aka Emmett John. Emmett has been wanting to do everything on his own lately.
His latest success has been putting himself into his carseat. He can even do the buckles all by himself. 🙂
Having said that, it’s not always a quick process. We are having to leave a little bit early so that he can buckle himself in. Today it only took a few minutes and he’s so determined to do this.
Lizze and I do our very best to make sure we support his need for independence, as we think it’s awesome.
Sometimes we have to help him along because we do have to get to our destinations as close to on time as possible. Most of the time he’s okay with help.
He’s come so far and I’m so, so incredibly proud of everything he is. 🙂
That is huge, Rob! My son barely turned five and he is neurotypical and was doing that at 4 years old, a bit at three as well. This means Emmett is catching up to his typical peers in some ways- making good progress!! You gotta love that!
