Seeing is Believing

Yesterday one of Polly’s therapists brought her a walker.  She got it from the school she worked at.  They never had anyone small enough to use it before now.

Polly has taken a few steps over the weekend, cruising furniture, holding on to an adult’s hands, gingerly stepping out.

Now she is walking.  Polly enjoys walking with the walker…

I am ecstatic.

Today S took it with them to the therapy center and everyone was blown away with her little walking self.

One lady said it was an Easter miracle.  OK, maybe I wouldn’t go that far, but I know what she means.

This is the kid who only started crawling about two months ago.  The kid who finally decided to climb some stairs in the last few weeks.  The kid who refused to lift her legs while standing.

If the stander wasn’t on loan, Polly and I could finally give it a good butt whoopin’.

 And she’s so proud.  Just look at that smile!

Sometimes, seeing is believing.

    Wow! she is awesome!! Nothing beats that look of success on a child.
    Hope your Easter went well and that God has brought healing to your hurting heart. Remember to give him your “death” to give it life again.

    Miss you.

    I saw your new siggy pic at downsyn and just HAD to come check out your blog to see if you’d posted a story to go with the pic. 🙂 I guess I just need to check in here more often! 🙂 Oh, Gillian!!! I am so excited for you!!! YAY! YAY! YAY! for Miss Polly. I have a pic of Em with a walker very similar to that one, just last fall. I remember the first time seeing her use it to take steps…. it was SUCH a big accomplishment! I bawled! 🙂 Precious memories….Sending hugs and high fives to Polly (and Mom!), birthday wishes to Zoya, and much love to your entire family.
    God bless you!
