Christy Has A New Toy!

I know, it's been forever since I blogged.  I promise I will resume soon, but the last 5 months have been some of the hardest months of my life.  I know the last time I blogged I posted that our daughter, Jessica, and her husband, Jon found out that their little one was diagnosed at 20 weeks gestation to have Trisomy 18.  Jessica began blogging about her experience, and I recommend that you check out her blog, Mathew's Life.  Matthew was born sleeping on Oct 6 and he was a beautiful, tiny little baby.

The reason for blogging today is to share with you (and her therapists) how well Christy is doing in her walker!  This walker is on loan from Peace Health Children's Therapy where she recieves Physical and Speech therapy on a regular basis! As you can see from the videos, she has grown taller in the last few months and has new knee braces that allow for bending but make it very hard for her to hyper-extent her knees.

This first video she has the wheels all locked so she can only go forward and has slight resistance and she can not turn:

This video shows her "free wheeling" where all wheels can turn/go forwards and backwards and no resistance

This last one is her going away from the camera with wheels locked as they are in the first video
