Adele's big day.

I know. I'm sorry. It's been too long. Turns out those two additional PT sessions took up way more time than I anticipated and combined with getting very little sleep lately, I haven't had much energy to get anything done in the evenings. If you think this poor blog has been neglected, you should see the state of my house...

ANYWAY, my Mum is visiting this week and that's exciting for us, so I was planning to try to catch up on this, and a number of other things while she's here.

Fiona is very excited!

A couple of weeks ago Adele got a new AFO (ankle-foot orthotic) for her left leg - it comes all the way up to under her knee and allows her foot to lift up, but prevents it from tilting down. This is to stop her dragging her toes along behind her when using her walker. Well, today the extra PT, new AFO, and wanting to show off for Granny all came together and she took.... HER FIRST STEPS!! I don't know about you but I wasn't sure she'd ever get round to it, and I can't quite believe it happened!

She was so proud of herself, it was really fun to see. She is old enough that she understands a lot now, and she really knew what she was doing and wanted to do it over and over again. She kept saying "walk more" then she wanted to see the movie I made of her walking. Needless to say, I have many, many movies of her walking, so here's one for your enjoyment :-)

In other news, this month I had a birthday. Not a big one... though next year you'll all be invited to a super party!

Fiona got very, very excited about Valentines day. Her class at daycare had a party and she made each of her friends a card...

And when not being exhausting, the girls played, watched movies, and were cute...

I don't really have any other news! I'll try to take pictures while my Mum is here at least. And as Adele takes more steps, I'm sure there will be many more videos of that!
