I was a little worried he'd not remember how to use it and start all over again. Silly Mommy, always managing to worry over nothing. Alex certainly didn't forget. He LOVES his wheels. This is only his second time in it since getting it late yesterday and he's already figuring it out, his arms are so much stronger than when he borrowed one just like it a couple months ago and he's going fast, fast, fast. Makes a momma's heart so very happy to see her little one soooo happy! Now the only concern? keeping BOTH boys safe while Alex (quickly becoming known as little Mario Andretti) is flying around these parts!!!
For those that aren't familiar you can read about standers here . You might not be able to see it so well in the video but Alex is standing in this mobile stander. He has his "boots" on to keep his feet and ankles stable and he's locked into knee stabilizers as well. His upper back and bottom are supported as well. Standers have a tremendous amount of benefits medically as well as developmentally and socially for those who can not otherwise stand on their own! Alex's arrived late yesterday afternoon and fits him perfectly. We couldn't find any before this one that actually fit him. At 26 inches, he's still a pretty little one and a half year old but with a very BIG spirit!!!
Nicholas also wants to get his hands on these wheels BADLY ha,ha and its a bit challenging keeping him out of the danger zone, ha,ha. Yeah, life's pretty good if this is my biggest concern these days!!!!!
This isn't the best video quality but I just couldn't wait to share so hope you enjoy!!!! I'll be back with more soon!!!!
thanks to our awesome therapist Julie for all of her support in getting this for our little guy
and keeping his brother out of danger and even laughing during our therapy time :)
