Loving It Outside

The weather has been good to us lately and we have been enjoying the time outside.

Christina did wonderful in the gait trainer outside. She has much more room to use to navigate around.

It has also been amusing to watch Christina take steps in the snow. I don't know if it is the mushy snow or just because it is different Christina's steps are very purposeful. For those who do not know what I mean you would have to see it. She was a little timid when I held her on the snow bank, but once she realized what we were doing the snow bank was not long enough.

The Wissota Winter Classic was on Saturday and we went, but Christina was a little tired so we did not stay long. Her teeth were also bothersome most of the weekend and I am sure that contributed to her not wanting to stay also. Christina respite friend Aushleana joined us there.

Christina and I also talked to aunt Carmen this weekend. Christina prefers holding the phone as opposed to using the computer.

Playing Outside

It was a great weekend.

Thursday therapy was canceled so Christina and I had extra play time. Christina also made a new friend, Jen. Friday was more play and a trip to the mall. Along with the usual activities Christina enjoyed singing with several other children. I don't know if the other children notice Christina watching them. It makes me smile watching her watch the other kids when they join her in play. No one seemed to mind my being off key. Saturday the little pool was closed, but we played in the big pool for a little while. The big pool is not as warm as the little pool so we did not stay in as long. Saturday was also the Wissota Winter Classic. We went, but did not stay long. Most of the activities are not geared for the younger crowd. And Christina was on the tired side.

Sunday was lots of fun for everyone. We all played outside and went for a walk. Christina enjoyed walking in the snow in our snow fort. And again I can't express well enough how wonderful Christina does in the gait trainer outside. It is not as easy with her boots on, but she gives it her best. Christina walked up and down the deck so many times she deserved a big shoulder ride.

On another note:
Christina has her surgery creeping up on us fast. It is very noticeable the Botox is wearing off. And the Phenol Blocks are not far behind.

Parent teacher conferences are coming up also. It is always enjoyable to hear how well Christina does in school. The conference also gives us the chance to learn other items to work on with Christina.

The telethon was an experience again. Christina was her smiley self making everyone smile. She was mistaken for Moriah, the current feature child, often.

Sunday we played outside for quite awhile. We went for a walk, sat in the snow, and did a little sledding. The snow I've been piling up on the steps worked out well for Christina's sled. Christina looked so cute all bundled up.

Thank you to all who took part in Starfest 2011 and to all who donated.

Christina was her happy self for most of the day on Saturday. Towards the end of the telethon Christina had enough and she told us. Unfortunately she did not want to take part with the other children gathered around while Warren sang "Thank God For the Children".

Sunday we made up for lost play time. Christina was in a super good mood and thought it would be fun to pick on dad. Everything I suggested we play, Christina did not want to do. Then half an hour or so later she would walk over to whatever I suggested earlier and wanted to play. Anything from reading, cooking, gait trainer, etc. the princess only wanted to play if it was her idea.

Christina did agree with me when we went outside. Christina looks very cute all bundled up.
