A Journey with Love and Laughter

Read about our family as we journey through life as a family, with siblings, school and spina bifida, and lots of fun and laughter along the way!

First steps!

The day finally came.
The day that I knew would come once Nick gained confidence in his ability.

With his higher braces and some parent coaching to take it one step at a time, he did it! Independent steps!
Of course I had to get a video and make him do it again

I knew that he could do it!
Nick is so proud of himself as well. As long as he stops and stabilizes himself I think that he can keep going. But of course he gets excited and just wants to get there and just goes.

Being able to take these 5 steps opens up new things for Nick.
He can do a lot by reaching and walking and holding onto things, but by taking independent steps and being stable enough to take those steps opens up possibilities!

I am so excited!
6 years and his first independent steps!
