Walking with crutches

I just wanted you to see how much progress Avery has made with her crutches in the last two months. I need to get soem better pictures, but these will have to do for now.
This was Avery at the end of November. As you can see, she still needed lots of hands-on help to use her crutches.
This was her a couple of weeks ago. She wasn't in the mood to use her crutches that day, so we could only get her to use one and hold daddy's hand, but she can use them all be herself now! And you can see the difference in posture too.

Here she's using one crutch and holding the rail with her other hand. Little Miss Independent! She's doing so well! In her weekly PT session she's even been working on using them to go up and down stairs (which is too scary to watch - I don't know if I'll ever be able to let her do that by herself!!!). Also, she's been working on sitting in a chair and picking her crutches up from the floor, putting them on, and standing up all by herself, and has been doing marvellously at it!! She's even managed to get up off the floor with them with minimal assistance! She is one amazing little girl :) I'll try to get more pictures of all this wonderful stuff she's been doing!
