Physical Therapy and Walking Wings

We have recently started up with a new physical therapist with Early Steps.  She thinks Liam may be walking soon and this is very exciting and scary all at the same time.  Ahh!

Liam can stand up from the sitting position on his own (pretty awesome) and will take 2-3 steps on his own and then fall down.  He is cautious in his falling and does it in like slow motion.  His new PT suggested trying Walking Wings with Liam last week and we were able to try them out today.

Liam had a tough time relaxing and putting weight on his feet.  He would do it at times and take a few steps but we aren't sure he is 100% ready to do this with him on a daily basis.  We will try it again next week.

My PT suggested putting a sturdy structure in the middle of his play yard that we could place toys on.  Right now all of his toys are on the ground so he just falls to his toys to get them but if we move his toys to his level he will walk to them.  So that is what we are working on this week, stay tuned!
