Kyla 9/365


KayTar has gross motor (physical) delays and she also has a poor sense of balance. She is in weekly physical therapy because of this. For Christmas, one of her cousins got a Princess scooter that KayTar wanted to try so badly, but for the life of her she could not keep her balance on it or get the thing to move forward. She was so upset about that scooter, she talked about it for weeks. Last week in PT, she worked on a scooter board and scooted herself all the way from one room to the next successfully, with the therapist holding on to her. Yesterday in our backyard, she got on BubTar's old 3-wheeled Spiderman scooter and made it go all by herself! It was very exciting for her, and for us. I love the way this photo captured the tiniest bit of motion in her right foot, pushing that scooter all by herself, finally.

That is awesome and what a great picture! There is no way at all that Lainey could do that. Not even with a months' worth of daily practice. Go KayTar!
