Playing outside and PT fun!


We had a taste of spring this week - YAY! Bryan loved playing outside!

It's a little challenging to find activities that Bryan can do outside. Right now it is wet, muddy, and the ground is cold. We also live in a country sub - so let's just say the grass isn't the manicured type that is made for crawling around on :)

We have Bryan's modified tricycle. My bike has a kid's seat on it and he loves taking rides on that. Just this weekend we purchased a baby/toddler swing for the play structure. I am hoping when we get Bryan's walker figured out that it can also give him some freedom/some more to do outside.


Bryan tried rock climbing. He is quite an easy going child and usually is willing to participate is just about any activity the PT suggests. He didn't like rock climbing 


Bryan got to walk around in the johnny-jump-up type contraption again this week.

He likes it - but was getting tired by that point in the appointment.

Bryan did get to shoot a basket!


Bryan did walk along the parallel bars.


The PT raised him up high so he could "fly"!


And flying helped him reach toys off the top shelf!

----------------------------
We don't see Bryan's neurologist and PM&R doctor again until May. 

We are still "in line" waiting for a genetic testing appointment.

Bryan has been taking a few more independent steps. The doctor said it could be a "false positive" - just due to good nutrition and getting a chance to move around. We are trying not to get too hopeful - but it is hard. The PT thinks Bryan may be getting stronger. She continues to wonder about polio. The last time we saw the PM&R doctor he told Bryan "You are a mystery".

We continue to LOVE and enjoy our JOY FILLED little boy - we are blessed!

We are trying to "be still" and trust God with the future.

Blessings, Sandy
