Still Waiting....

We are still waiting for Maddie's braces to be fitted. Appt in 2 weeks. In the meantime, though she is pulling up on certain pieces of furniture, and cruising a little bit. She is getting much more stable on her little feet, but not very balanced.

I am quite excited to see this new milestone achieved. She is such a joy and a trooper, and I know she is dying to run around the house with the other girls.

I still don't know how long it will take to get her walking independently. That's up to her, but I know she is motivated. :) She will probably start with a walker of some kind to help her learn how to balance. Balance is tough for her, I assume because she has limited sensation in her feet. She doesn't seem to know where they are going to land when we are helping her cruise around. It is improving, however.

Thank you all for reading, and for your prayers.....


  1. That's great and wow pulling up and that motivation and desire!!

    I have not forgotten about posting something about braces and my experiences..I am not going to make excuses for why I haven't done it yet. I will be praying that your daughter gets her braces soon and you all can start working with her to talk, it will give her such great independence to get around on foot by herself.

  4. Hope all goes well with the braces. You sound really upbeat. All my love, Aunt Ginny
