Ditching the crutches

 
Mariah walks great inside.


Outside she falls a lot on uneven ground.
  So we had tried forearm crutches, but were not happy with how slow she walked and how bent over she was.  It was worse than the falling!

Mariah's new PT suggested a Kaye walker with all terrain tires for outside ONLY.  She loaned us a used one to try out and the consensus is that we LOVE it.  She's so much faster and more upright than with the crutches!  We will be ordering a custom one just for her on Friday with the all terrain tires so she can go even faster!  The only problem is, she can't decide if she wants to get a yellow one or keep the nice shiny style with red handles... 

Oh and LOOK!  She finally has enough hair for REAL ponytails!!

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life; but those who make their journey home across time and miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them,are carried on the wings of destiny; and placed among us by God's very own hands. --Kristi Larson
