The World's Greatest Science Experiment

I have news. Big news. Big stem-cells-are-working kind of news.

For the past 24+ hours, Elisabeth has been putting pressure on her legs - willingly!

In the past, when lifted up from the floor or crib, Elisabeth would typically keep her legs tucked up under her, offering no support. But now as I lift her, she extends her legs, plants her feet on the floor, and bears some weight on them.

This is huge. Seriously huge!

I feel like I am witnessing a science experiment - the world's greatest science experiment - in my own home, with my own daughter. And I feel lucky. And happy. And excited!

***I'm planning on making a video of it. So stay tuned!
