This is a very quick post to share the amazing achievement of Rosie over the festive holidays. It’s been a wonderful break for Rosie and family – so much has happened and I have no idea where to begin. The time we had together was great including a week away in Brecon, Wales where we spent Christmas with Karen’s family – 17 adults and kids in one great big house! I’ve chosen to take the easy option and keep the goings on over the holidays to ourselves. However one bit of news I HAD to share is that Rosie is now up on her feet and walking about with the aid of ‘C3PO’ her awful looking but brilliant walking frame.We’ve really struggled to get Rosie to use this and eventually we decided she just wasn’t going to go for that option. The physio suggested taking ‘C3PO’ to the nursery where there is more space and seeing if the encouragement of her one-to-one Lorraine and staff might make her think again about using it. Well sure enough a couple of days before she finished for the holidays Rosie used the frame and managed to walk about in the outside play area! I had seen a short video and couldn’t believe my eyes but the moment didn’t really hit home with me until I saw her use it in front of me.We decided to take ‘C3PO’ with us to Brecon as the house had big corridors with wooden floors allowing plenty of space to explore. I’ve included a short video below where you can see Rosie walking with the frame. I was seriously beginning to doubt whether she would get to her feet and co-ordinate the feet and hands to balance, then suddenly out of nowhere she’s up and off!It’s a fantastic start to the New Year and who knows we could have her walking by next Christmas! I certainly won’t have so many doubts about her achieving that goal now. Strolling from The Future’s Rosie on Vimeo.
