A "Walk" in Progress

This is Nina just 2 days ago at Physical Therapy. The walker she will have looks just like this one except picture it in hot pink. Nina has a love/hate relationship with this walker.

Love, because she can really move in it. She can go faster than she was ever able to move before on her own, giving her an immense sense of accomplishment and joy. She is so proud of herself! And she can really go fast!

Hate, because this walker makes her posture be correct and she cannot compensate her movements. There is also this harness type thing that does not allow to scissor her legs when she walks. Basically, this walker makes her work hard!

So here are a few short videos of her as she is a "walk in progress."
