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...

love to all.

Ohh How adorable your little guy is. We have a little man with SB too. What lesion is grey? I am loving all the moms that have blogs with kids with SB. You all inspire me. It is nice to know we are not alone.

Can't believe what a big boy he's looking like these days. They grow up from babies in a blink of an eye. Such a cutie!!!

Fantastic! He's such a big guy now, it's amazing to see! Thanks for posting all the pics. Grey is a few months ahead of our Abby, so it's really nice to see how well he's getting on *and* get a preview of what'll be happening for Abby all at the same time :-) Can't wait for Abby's stander now (hopefully around May).
