The Kidwalk Parade

Still no time for a proper update, so I thought I'd share a couple of videos about what we have been up to around here (and when you see the mess of a house I have been keeping in these videos you will understand why I need to do some of the things I will be doing instead of a more in-depth entry).

First, I would like to share some footage from this morning of what I call the Kidwalk Parade. For those PTs who may be reading, please disregard things like positioning and form. We just got the Kidwalk and have been putting Fletcher in it for short periods of time and just trying to have some fun so he'll like it, and then we are going to start working on form, etc. And fun they were having. I took this video about five to ten minutes into the "parade," so Fletcher is starting to drag a bit (literally and figuratively) as is Audrey (just literally... why, I still am not quite sure).

The second video is also from today. Audrey has been pulling up on things for probably less than a week, and this morning I caught her during what I am pretty sure was her first transition from one object to another. Pretty exciting stuff for this momma.

I think he looks fantastic. I wish Charlie was that happy practicing. I did not give birth to a pleaser--not one little bit.

Audrey is getting so big! And it sounds like she's "talking" too.

Erin - SOO COOL!!!! That is amazing that he has the movements so naturally! His form will improve as he keeps on stepping and moving. I just love how Trevor just drags Audrey around and "runs her over". hehe. Cool guy. It's just a matter of time until they're both walking around giving you a hard time :-) Way to go Fletch!!!!

Children's Rehab team in NO was all about the kid walk. William isn't up to it yet but I hope one day he will be! Fletcher looks awesome!
