Isaac's Stander

Yesterday we took Isaac to the therapy center so that he could be fitted for a stander. The center is loaning this to us for a couple of weeks. Then hopefully soon we will get one of our very own! This was the first time he had ever been to the center! He has always received home based therapy due to being very prone to respiratory infection. His PT took him for a ride in the stander up and down the hallway so that he could check the place out.

At first he looked like he wasn't too sure what to think.

Then he started playing with his silver crinkly paper and then life didn't seem so bad.

He started coming unglued after hearing some unfamiliar noises. I started singing the ABC song and he smiled right away and started waving at me.

At home he enjoyed standing in it while watching his favorite Baby Einstein video and playing with his favorite toys. This is the good life!!

Awesome! Austin just started going to PT @ the clinic too. It's like hey there's a whole world out there beyond my living room??

Good job on tolerating that stander Isaac!!! You'll be a Pro in no time.

Yeah, Isaac! You look so cute in your new little shoes,since I haven't seen you in shoes before, mostly socks and bare feetsies. I hope you like the feeling of standing up. Maybe, the world seems different from that perspective. I can't wait to see you in your new stander, soon.

Love, your Gammy
