Walking tall

One day, about a year ago, Hope decided to cruise. Seemingly out of nowhere, she put one hand over another, moved her feet and scampered across an ottoman.

One day, a few weeks ago, Hope realized she didn't need the ottoman. She let go of her push cart and started walking excitedly to Mo.

Since then, her confidence is increasing and she's taking more steps on her own. At therapy this week, Hope walked about a dozen or more steps. Now, she's walking a bit more every day, even if she still resembles a drunken sailor.

We're awfully proud.

Yippee! I love her full-body approach -- she does nothing halfway! I can see it all now -- just about the time you're fully engaged in New Baby Care, Hope will be all over the house . . . You go, girl!

Love from Grandma K.
