New toy

We finally got Abby's new gait trainer!  It fits her perfectly with plenty of room to grow.  She has been taking consistent steps in it, although not bearing weight yet.  

It has large tires that she can learn to push with her hands.

Now we just need to make sure she's in it enough each day to make progress.  One of the moms I talk to at UCP suggested taking her to the mall in the mornings to walk.  Her son learned to walk by going up and down the halls of their local mall in his gait trainer, with the elderly walkers cheering him on.  

Sounds like a great idea if we could make the time for it!

Love the new digs! I am thinking this is a Kid Walk... right? She looks great in it. I would love to get one for Fletcher. Was it hard to get? Did you have any problem getting insurance to cover it? We are 0 for 2 with our insurance and I am feeling pretty defeated.

Love your new home. We did the same thing for Elizabeth when were working on walking, she took her to the mall in the early hours to walk. You may need an army with you as you have 2 extra to bring along with you.
Levi is so cute, I love his chubbiness. You give me hope for another little one (who may reach chubbiness too).
