Moving ahead..

With the right equipment, we're giving Grace every opportunity
to be the best she can!
Today, Grace got her hip brace.. we're starting with a few hours at nap
time, that she wears it; and then again a few hours at bedtime.
This afternoon, at nap, she wore it for only 45 minutes.. she was fussing a little, so I took it off.  Now she is down for the night, and hopefully will wear it
for a few hours tonight.
She will eventually wear it all night.
This hip brace, will help loosen up her hips a little, and strengthen
her legs/hips.
Here's a pic from nap time:
   so it keeps her legs & hips in the 'frog' position..and for someone who loves to roll on her belly at night..that's what's going to be the toughest part for her... she really can't move in it.  That's the only thing I really don't like about it.  I know she will get used to it, and I'm already used to putting it on & off.. I hope she's just comfortable in it.  But I know it'll help her...

  An evening jaunt to the park tonight, Grace &
Mommy going down the slide...
 And Grace on her first swing ride in the park..
she absolutely LOVED it!!

  She looks so big!!!!
Next week, she gets fitted for a stander.. I think that's going to appear a bit more
daunting (the structure anyway)..but again, it's a step, literally in the right direction
to help her strengthen her core to stand & walk!!
Look at that smile..there's nothing we won't do to help her!!
Thanks for keeping up!
pattie & gary, Grace & maxwell
