This is pretty awesome! Sissy took this one at school. He is really cruising in the beginning, but then he gets stuck and totally gives up, watch his body language! Poor little guy, Caylee didn’t know it then, but he was sick, he threw up just an hour or so later. Poor Pooh Bear!
I love the way this gait trainer moves with him so fluidly! He is getting to be a speed demon in it! I LOVE it!
The first time out in public in the Kidwalk. Josh saw every square foot of Old Navy, a couple of times over! LOL! He LOVED it and was the most motivated he’s been in it yet!!! Definitely loved having the FREEDOM to go and see whatever HE wanted to see! Way to go Pooh Bear, mama is so PROUD of you!!!!
This is Joshua’s first time in his new gait trainer, yesterday at PT. It’s called a Kidwalk and made by Prime Engineering, if you want to google them.
I’ll take more video of his first real outing soon!
This was Joshua’s second time to go bowling, and he definitely knew what to do this time! As soon as I got him out of his wheelchair, he started heading towards where the balls are! He has a definite preference for pink bowling balls, which is funny, because he doesn’t show this preference for pink anywhere else.
We went out to eat before bowling and I got the BEST shot of Joshua and his Daddy, Kevin.
People watched us a lot, the way we all go up to bowl with Josh, helping him out, cheering for him. Some just smile, some say how cute he is, but there was one lady next to us just had such a question on her face. I think she thought it was cool the way we all gather round him and act as if he is the *star* of our family (which he is), but I don’t think she has seen this in action much; a family out with their child with a disability, doing normal family stuff. We are happy, we laugh, we tell Joshua how awesome and cute he is. This is our life. I hope that she remembers Joshua the next time she sees another child with a disability, and presumes to feel sorry for them, or that they are less than another child. That could not be further from the truth!
