If you ask anyone who knows me or somewhat knows me, they’ll tell you that one of my favorite free time activities – behind spending time with my amazing husband and little man – is attending garage sales.
It’s a reality that Jordan isn’t going to be like other kids with a nervous system that allows their legs to move easier than his legs. He will be putting those super boots on, which will allow him to dream of whatever he wants to go after despite the need for a little assistance. When I really think about it, we all depend on something to get us to where we want to go whether it’s braces, wheelchair, bus, or car.
Last week, Jordan took some giant steps for his small little world. He had been pushing himself back into a seated position, but when we discussed the maneuver with his physical therapist, she asked that we discourage him from going into the splits because of the pressure it put on his hips.
It was about a year ago when Randy and I were trying to decide what kind of items we should add to our baby shower registry. We started to think of the items our little peanut may need or what may be helpful for his development.
Jordan has been doing well with his super boots. I am amazed at how these boots have given him freedom. As Randy and I were getting ready to go to work last week, Jordan was playing in his little area and tipped over.
