Using the Walker!

HERE is today's reminder to enter the giveaway contest if you haven't yet already!

I finally got some decent videos of Dean using his walker! Well, kind of decent, save the junk he keeps running into in the second one.

As you can see, Dean often turns the walker a bit. Jen is hoping to get one that has hip guides in it so that it will kind of keep him square. But it's fun to see him motivated to walk and rely on a device to do it (since he usually doesn't seem to be a fan of "help" of any kind! Wonder where he got that from :)). Yesterday at church, he actually took two steps on his own! It was very exciting. It's still going to be a bit of a marathon rather than a sprint to get to full walking, but Dean is well on his way!

He's doing great, Ali:) Nathaniel could not even weight bear on his feet until 2 1/2 and didn't walk until 3---that was on GH...
