Walking is Hard work!

I took this video of Maggie trying to use her walker. It's the Kidwalk. She loved it at first but we've been having some problems of late. About  1/2 of the time she has been really freaking out when she gets in to it. We can't figure out why, but being in the upright position is very frightening for her.

 Today was better and she was in it for about 15 minutes or more. She seemed like she was gong to freak out, but she didn't. She was smiling and really trying hard to make it work.

This is about three minutes long and you can see how much work she is doing just to be in this position. There's not much walking in this one, we are working on just getting her used to the walker and the upright position itself after those meltdowns.

For those of us who learned the typical way, let me remind you that walking is HARD  WORK! Check out the concentration on this kid.

Maggie is a stud!



  1. Wish I was there!

    In the several years of seeing Maggie in photos, I think this is the 2nd time of seeing her in video. It's like a whole new way of knowing! Loved hearing your voice, too. - Funny when you quickly said "it won't fall over!"

    I'm guessing this piece of equipment was a long time coming....? Hoping to see more Maggie movement!

  2. I love this -- love seeing Maggie working so hard -- and it doesn't surprise that she does so!

    Go, Maggie!
