Go Madi Go!

I just had to share my amazing little girl with you!  Here is a video of Madi riding her NEW Amtryke.  She LOVES it!  When I showed it to her and told her it was hers, she got very excited and shouted, "Mine, mine, mine!".  It was really cute.  As you can see in the video below, Madi petals the handlebars with her hands to propell the tricycle.  I can also push to help her.  She cannot push with her legs, but we got her one where her legs move also when she petals with her hands.  She has a leg strap to help keep her knees/legs in, and the foot petals have straps to hold her feet in.  The movement of her legs helps with her bone development, circulation, and all of that good stuff, even though she's not 'pushing'.  She still needs some help to make herself go, but she is learning very quickly.  She is doing so awesome!


And speaking of how Madi gets around, here she is in her stander/parapodium with her walker.  We are teaching her to use her walker to get around.  Eventually she will get RGO's (reciprocating gate orthotic- pardon my spelling on that) to "walk" but this is getting her ready.  

P.S.  Sorry for the crummy videos. I can't find my camera and had to use my dumb camera phone.
