"Someday" may come sooner...

Do I think about a day when I don't have to heft Olivia around and she is moving on her own? Sure. Do I think about it being anytime soon. Not really. Not until yesterday, anyway.

You'll have to excuse me, I ball like I baby everytime I talk about it still, but here it goes.

Some of you might remember the 'demo' we were going to try out at therapy last week. Well, it didn't happen last week, but yesterday we got a chance to see how Olivia looks in a Kidwalk. Then I knew if we were lucky enough to have one of these walkers/wheelchairs 'someday' would be a lot sooner.

It looks ordinary enough, but looks are deceiving. It is a combination wheelchair (with the seat folded out) and walker (with the seat folded in). I cannot explain it, but you will have to see the video. Please take the time to watch it. You won't believe it. Imagine my girl prancing through preschool, church, or our front yard this summer. She'll be such a hoot! I believe my mother-in-law said it best when she said, "Look out, Tugger" (our 65lb. dog.)


  1. that is so exciting!! rock it olivia!

  2. Very exciting "step" in the process, yay!


  3. ahhhhh! i love this! can i hire her to take my dog on a walk when she gets the hang of this fantastic machinery?

    really excited for you guys!
