Kaylee Dances to Elmo

Kaylee was so cute this morning.  She was playing with her little Elmo toy and shaking her hips.  I love to see her dancing.  It gives me hope that I will someday have my little cheerleader.  I was in dance and cheerleading and I always wanted a daughter that would share the same love for dancing.  

Of course, I know kids do their own thing, but I think I can hope that I will have my little dancer for a few years while she is little. 

The therapist says that her love for dancing will really help her want to walk.  Maybe we can find a dance class where she is allowed to use her walker if she still needs it as a toddler.

On another note, I did speak with the service coordinator from the Regional Center.  He recommended a place in Poway (the next town) that sells gently used medical and handicapped assistance items.  I am going to try to see if I can find them on the web today (he didn't have the name of the biz).  They may have the posterior pedi walker I am looking for.  All her therapists agree that she will probably take off and run with a walker.  She is in to everything already, so I can only imagine.

The service coordinator also said to let him know all her measurements for orthotics and we can order them through the Regional Center.  Apparently, it's difficult to get a good fit for the shoe in an infant size and they have a place that does it.   Kaylee is still pronating her feet, which we thought over time it may correct itself, but it hasn't.  PT is going to see how she walks with hard bottom shoes before she makes a final decision.

Well, we are off to Costco in a few.  Going to do some cleaning and cake making today.  Have some friends and family that could use a little pick me up, so I am going to try out the cupcakes in a jar.  My friend Sharon makes delicious cupcakes in a jar and the most beautiful cakes I have ever seen, so we are using her recipe.  I may try a GFCF version too.

We just started using the jump start orthotics with Connor at the recommendation of his PT at school. He pronates also. He walks so much better with them...more heel-toe than shuffle. Good luck!
