What She Is Up To Today

The Theratogs have really helped Nina with stability and posture. I really think this has helped her feel more confident in her walking. And she really wants to walk...maybe because we have promised any toy she wants, but the point is she wants it. This morning the first words I heard were, "Mom, I want to walk, can we practice?" Sure thing girl! So we got her "gear" on and look at her! We started small, and we kept increasing the distance.
I have a walking helper and she walks all the time with it, but she has the security of me catching her if she falls. This is all her though! And this is what walking is all about!
It amazes me that it has only been 3 months since her rhizotomy!

Of course we were watching Signing Time!


  1. LOVE IT!!!! I wonder, what if she had a fun little "job" to do? Like make a game of taking an object from point A (that she can easily get to standing with the walker) and set it on the couch? That would keep her hands/mind a little more occupied, and she'd be less likely to lunge. How would she do with something like that? Or, like a pin the tail on the donkey kind of concept. If she likes dogs, make a dog face and have her take the nose to it, etc.

  2. WOW!!!!! (I feel like I say that alot now when I comment on your blog)...but this is just amazing to me. Just amazing. Love, love, love it!
