I just realized I never updated any videos, nor had I started including Ramya's walking videos. I will start posting those below this post. Look for the posts at the bottom in red :)
I just thought I'd share a few new videos of Madi walking. She got her new HKFOs not too long ago, and she's adjusting quite well. She has less stability in them, but also more movement. She is able to kick her legs out a lot better now. She got her first pair of HKFOs at about 22 months, but outgrew those pretty quickly!
This video was taken last week. You can tell when she started getting tired because she started jumping. Jumping in her HKFOs is one of her favorite things to do, though!
This video is from today. You can tell she has a lot more energy. Towards the end she starts getting bored of her walker and tired, so we switched her to her shopping cart (which is the last video), which she had fun with. The goal is to keep her up standing and practicing, but not to the point she gets frustrated and doesn't want to be up. We change up her activities pretty often to keep her happy and engaged.
... and with her cart...
Here's a video of Madi walking at 6 years old, using HKFOs and arm cruches....
Ramya walking with her HKFOs and walker at 8 years old...
