Wow...Things have gotten SO busy around here. I thought our plate was full before, but nope....apparently there was room for more, and we filled it! Things have been crazy, exhausting and so much fun. Miss Maddie is moving right along, and re-affirming her Rockstar status on a daily basis. Last week she got some new wheels...Her walker finally came in!
Now, if you're thinking "It looks exactly like her old walker," You are right! It's identical, except for one major difference...This Kaye walker has swivel wheels on the front. This is a big deal...No more dragging, and lifting to make turns. This walker turns VERY quickly, simply by shifting her weight. Our PT brought it by last Thursday, and we put her in it right away. My sweet little girl was instantly transformed into a drunken sailor. She swayed, and stumbled...She giggled and did donuts in the driveway. Then she tried to walk straight and got mad when she couldn't...It would have been hilarious, if we hadn't felt so frustrated for her. I was really concerned. I didn't want her to get frustrated and abandon it, and I didn't want to push too hard. SO, I gave it a day and tried again...and she did a little better. Then over the weekend we brought it to church, Target, and Home Depot...by Sunday night, she had it down. (Click Here for video)
I am so proud of this little girl. She is a determined, fiesty, little thing...and I love that about her! She fell so many times over the weekend, and every time she got back up and tried again. One of the falls was almost a face-plant on the driveway...and it scared both of us. With tears in her eyes, she looked up at me and said "Mama, I scared...I fall down." I picked her up and asked her if she wanted to go inside. She said "No...I want more walk." I honestly don't know if I'll ever be as strong as my little girl, but I truly hope to be one day.
Another new development around here has been the start of Pre-T-Ball!
I'm cracking up right now at this one...He totally has the glove on the wrong hand!
We have been so excited about this! Mason has been practicing his swing for weeks...
Even Maddie has gotten in on the action...
Ever since Mason wore his first baseball cap at 6 months, I have been looking forward to t-ball! And I'm telling you, I was not disappointed! It was the funniest thing I have ever seen. The "team" is a group of boys and girls, ages 3 and 4. There are no rules, and pretty much everyone on the field has no idea what they are doing...It's hilarious. And the best part was...Mason loved it! Here's a few of my favorite moments...
The moments of anticipation...
The moments of chaos... (Click Here for video)
Mason decided he would rather field the ball then run to third.
The moments of frustration... (Click Here for video)
OK...so I know I should be teaching him not to get upset, but this little fit, had me rolling!
Even the moments when I looked up only to see my little guy is quickly becoming a big guy...
And then there was this moment... (Click Here for video)
Yep...This girl's got some moves!
SO...Lots of new things going on around here, and the bugs couldn't be happier.
It's gonna be a busy spring, but if these past few weeks are any indicator of what's to come, I think it'll be the best one yet.
