I'll let the pictures do the talking....with my captions, of course! :)
q after dropping off Kanyon at school. Killer sleepy face.
klp wearing Daddy's cowboy hat. This may or may not be a little hint at their Halloween costumes
q and Chandler sitting in a bucket...k-i-s-s-i-n-g. Not really. They were just both sitting there and being so cute.
We had PT at the park one day. It was lots of fun! Our PT, Celia, is a part of the Ambucs club that helped build this all access park. We LOVE IT!
klp with his crutches (or "sticks" as we call them). They are very new and he still needs 100% help. They are just starting to work on the rhythm of stepping and putting the crutch down, etc. Not to mention, the balance, and holding on part. We are hoping his left hand will allow him to use both crutches, but we may end up having to just use one if that left arm has too much trouble. Either way, its fun to see him working on the next step (pardon the pun). I remember when they ordered his gait trainer thinking there was NO WAY he was going to be able to walk in that. They started working on it and it wasn't long before he was figuring it out! Same thing with the bigger gait trainer and then the walker. The stakes are a little higher with the crutches because he has to learn how to fall correctly so as not to hurt himself on the crutches. The crutches will also mean more falls in general. So far, everything he's used has offered a lot of support so the falls have been minimal. We have a lot of work to do, strength to build, and just time with this, but I know he'll do great.
he loves hand rails, so he loves getting to hold them and walk. Here he is walking down the stairs.
peek-a-boo Quinny boy!
