This is the best I've been able to get on video so far...her balance is getting better and better and she loves stopping and starting again! (You see the hip helper shorts on in this video...these ones are a size too big...hip helper shorts are not designed for walking but with our PTs advice we went up a size bigger to use with walking to allow her to have a wide enough stride to walk but also to help support her hips and keep her from splaying them so much when she walks!)
And here is 25 pound Sofia pushing 28 pound Mila in a wagon that is at least 5 pounds!! Crazy girl! I think one day she may be an olympic shotput thrower! LOL.
Mila's gross motor progress is also continuing to amaze us and all her therapists! Her recent progress can't really be explained and almost doesn't seem believable! Thankfully I'm watching it with my own eyes or I might not have believed it! Mila is a miracle in so many ways and I feel as if God is continuing to work miracles in her life! She has only had her gait trainer a couple months (?) and she is already able to use it without the seat prompt AND now, without the chest prompt! We're working on endurance, but we are OH SO PROUD of her!
Here is Mila walking with a wagon push toy. She struggled for a long time to bear weight through her arms to support herself this way. She often used her chest to support her body when standing and walking in her walker....but now her arms are strong enough to do this!
And here is Mila walking using only the frame of her gait trainer! I've seen her try to pull herself up on her walker throughout the day and she actually WANTS to walk!!!! Who IS this girl?? :)
