When Jessica and I were collecting pictures for our talk at Marquette, we had the opportunity to compare a picture of Namine standing in the bathroom with pretty much the same thing from back in 2014.
Namine has been moving around more on her own, climbing and scooting as much as she can.
I’m glad we got to play in the pool today, because I think the weather will not allow it again.
It’s not the first time Namine has stood up. She’s stood up with her walkers, she’s stood up using other objects. But it was the first time she’s been able to look out the window on her own.
I guess I just missed throwback Thursday, but that’s okay. With all of Namine’s progress in her walker lately, I wanted to show you how far she’s come.
Jessica, Namine and I went to a running store yesterday. Jessica needed a pair of shoes with good arch support, physical therapist’s orders. And the shoes with the best arch support are running (or sports in general) shoes. My dad came along to give advice on which kind would be best. I wasn’t needed; only my wallet was. Running shoes are ‘spensive, I tell ya. But I digress. I was sitting on one of the chairs holding Namine, when she said “More!”
In all the excitement about getting an MRI in preparation for getting her hernias fixed and g-tube removed, I completely forgot to post about Namine’s AFOs. The doctor said they would be ready sometime after Christmas, but I honestly didn’t expect them to be ready this soon. Nonetheless, Jess, my mom, my sister and Namine went to the orthotic clinic today to pick up the new AFOs.
