I have been assured by other CdLS parents that when their child started walking there was a major revolution in their independence. So that is what I'm banking on.. MAJOR. After months of inactivity from our walker due to lack of interest on Ella's part, I decided to unbury it from the pile of toys and stuffed animals it was smothered under to donate to our PT for her to use with other kids. You know.. kids who actually want to learn to walk on their own. Of course Ella saw the walker and it immediately became a prized possession akin to Charlie's broken airplane wing I tried to discard last week.. "But that's my favorite! I was going to play with that after rest time!!! Pleeeeease don't throw it away Mommy! Pwweeaasseee..."
Ella has been pretty excited about rediscovering her new "toy" and I am excited about the idea of her walking independently someday. Unfortunately though, it doesn't seem like the walker is doing much for her posture.. I can't help but sing a little every time..
Don't mind the Ninja/Samurai Warrior battle going on in the background..
