It’s all about that orange and blue, baby! Y’all ain’t ready!
Not sure where I’m going or how I’m going to get there, but I’m outta here! I figured out how to wiggle my way from my chair straps. I surprised everybody when I raised up, on my knees, and peeked over the top of my chair.. Mom was not happy..
I’m not really sure why I’ve become fascinated with my toes.. A few short years ago, I couldn’t even lift my leg up this high because my hips were so stiff. Somehow, my toe has made it’s way to my mouth.. and, this particular day, I couldn’t stop!
Floor time with my siblings is always fun! Even though my floor seat is getting too small; I enjoy sitting eye-to-eye with others. We decided to play a board game. It was Jeremiah’s idea. But, me and Josiah are the ones playing. A friendly game – turned battle. And I won (*evil laugh*).
We picked up my new wheelchair! I have always struggled with self mobility. I was either being carried or pushed around in a stroller. We used an infant stroller (a stroller with the infant carrier attached) until I was 2, maybe 2½. We used it from time-to-time without the carrier; and even less as IContinue reading “ROLLING STONE”
My primary source of mobility was a stroller with an infant carrier attachment. From time-to-time we would remove the carrier and use the stroller by itself. When I wasn’t using the stroller, Dad would carry me or use a Kangaroo chest pouch. I started using an infant walker six months ago. It was the firstContinue reading “THE TRAINER”
I was born weighing 5lbs, 11oz. That’s small compared to my brothers and sister. After 3 days of very little nutrition, I went home weighing 4lbs, 11oz. I probably wore a newborn diaper the first few months of my life. I remember celebrating when I finally reached a size 1. Now weighing a little overContinue reading “THERE’S NO 3½”
There’s a really nice man who makes these standers for children who have trouble walking and standing on their own. The goal is to help with core and leg strength. Because I’m so little, our PT had to cut pool noodles in half to give me extra side support. The black straps [across the back]Continue reading “TAKING A STAND”
I got my first pair of AFO’s, ankle-foot orthosis (a few months ago). My physical therapist at Children’s Hospital of Alabama casted my legs and feet to get a mold measurement for my custom shoes. We could choose a one color print, or a design print with cartoons, superheros, or a sports team. We wentContinue reading “THE AFO”
My brother [Jeremiah] saw blood on my hands, jaw, and chair. I was chewing on my finger at the time. Mom came, rinsed out my mouth, then realized I had a loose tooth. I’ve been to the dentist before. We learned then that my teeth were different. They are discolored, kind of orange tinted; andContinue reading “LOST TOOTH”
