Early Intervention Day ????

We were supposed to hear from our new theraphist this week, but so far, nothing! I'm starting to think that I may have to call and setit up myself. I wouldn't be so pushy about it, but Lola needs to learn to walk already!! I took the kids outside today because it was so nice, and I had to carry her around or I had to bend over tohold her hand while she walked and I was exhausted. I just want her to walk!! Paula had mentioned something about braces a while back and I'm thinking that may be a good idea. Her legs turn in when she walks and her ankles do, too. Braces would help correct that. I'm willing to try anything at this point! Don't get me wrong, I'll carry my baby as long as she needs me to, but GAWD she's heavy!!! My arms are aching. Hey, at least I'll get lots of exercise this Spring/Summer. :D

Braces might be the right thing....as exhausting as it is, bending over to hold her hand is a good thing too...whatever gets her doing a little more on her own is good.

Also, be careful of your own body as you haul and lift her...watch how you use your wrists when you lift and your back. I gave myself carpal tunnel that still sometimes resurfaces when I was lifting Gideon a lot pre-walking.

Both my kids were pigeon-toed and the doctor told us to stay away from the braces and they'd fix themselves eventually.

Both kids learned to walk and now follow me around and ask me questions and talk to me all the time so be careful what you wish for.

Thanks, Carlie. I can already feel my body breaking. LOL!! I have to wear MY brace on my right hand and my left isn't far behind. Blah! :)
