Day 914: New Confidence

Madi & Jack ventured out to Oakville today to wish cousin Abi good luck and farewell as she heads off to her first year of University. It was really nice visiting with family and having a nice meal. Good luck Abi!

Tonight Madi practiced her walking with no one spotting her. In the past she has been dependant on people staying behind her to catch her when she falls. She was very scared of falling. She now has a new confidence and desire to do things herself. We laid cushions on the floor and followed her with a cushion but did not catch her – she is learning to trust in herself when she gets off balance and to lean forwards, put her hands out, bend her knees and try to have a controlled fall.
