A Trip to the Children's Museum and a Video of Madi Walking

This morning we went to the Children's Museum with Hope Kids.  We had an awesome time and Madi was VERY excited to meet Ezra, an adorable little girl that lives locally, has spina bifida, and also has a very cool pink 'zoom' chair.  They were very cute together. 

I had been debating if we should bring Madi's HKFOs or wheelchair, and ended up deciding on HKFOs.  I'm glad I did.  There was a lot she could stand up and play with and she was very very motivated to walk.  She wanted to walk everywhere!  She is getting really fast.  I had to take a video just to show her off.  I had asked Ron to take off part of her HKFOs in the back I felt she didn't need, which he did, and she has a better range of motion and is able to take much higher and longer steps.  Here are some pictures, as well as a video of her walking.

My local friend is part of hope kids and told us there were other kiddos with SB in the group, so we applied :). They are great!
