Today Madi got fitted for her very first wheelchair. Everyone was tickled at how little she is. As soon as she saw the chairs, she insisted on sitting in them. The first thing she did was put her hands down to wheel the chairs. She knew just what she needed to do! I think she's going to catch on quick! We chose a pretty, bright pink for her chair. There were lots of color options, but Madi did not really care what we got. I was thinking purple, but the purple they had was not very pretty. My mom and Tami were hooked on pink, so that's what we got! The bummer is that it will take about 3 MONTHS to get. 3 months! That's insanely long! Oh well, there is nothing we can do to speed it up, so there is no reason to worry about it. I want to make her some kind of little cute korker bows to go on her handlebars. Her chair will be a bit different than those in the pictures. She will have higher bars for me to push her, leg guards so her legs do not rub, and a little headrest. Because she has pretty good upper body control, the back height will be just about the same, maybe an inch higher or so.
Conner spent the morning with his grandma, grams, at the Harken's summer movie event. They saw Alvin and the Chipmunks together. He had a good time with her, and it was nice for them to get some time together. I know when we bring the chair home, though, Conner will be all over it!!
