Grey Get's A Stander
Just last week Grey's stander arrived and so far he's loved every time he's been in it...We'll except the first time... when he just continually screamed at Gabe, (the orthopedic guy) while we has being strapped in. We'll today Grey's used to it and actually seems to enjoy it. The stander is used to help Grey bear weight on his legs and yeah know, stand upright.(obviously) but it is also great for him to be upright so he can develop cognitively. You see, kids his age are up all the time, standing, walking, etc. Grey can't do that yet, and so he see's the world from his "perched army crawl position" most of the time. Getting him upright changes his view, helps him see and learn things differently. So at the moment he "stands" for 20 minutes at a time a couple times a day. So far he's been very happy, so we'll see how long that lasts.
here's a few more pics of him in it.
don't even remind us...
Grey turns 1 on friday!!
are you kidding me? I can't even believe a years gone by already.
Much more on that later. :)
love to all.
