We hope you had a relaxing weekend. Aunt Diane came to visit us for her Birthday weekend. Corey, Diane and I have so much fun together. There is always at least one episode of uncontrollable laughter.
We did a little shopping, we went out to dinner (check out the gallery) and took Diane for a countryside drive to see parts of “Pennsyl-tukey” she’s never seen.
After Corey and I returned home from driving Diane to the train station, we spent some time outside enjoying the spring night. Corey and I walked along the deck and ramp towards the driveway. When we don’t use the walker, I position my body facing Corey’s right, supporting her upper torso as I side step with each forward step she takes.
Tonight, I truly walked beside her. We both faced forward and she stepped heel/toe walking in unison with me. This is a first. We are planning to practice walking on the grass with the hope it will develop her leg strength to walk on the beach this summer!
We also tried a childhood favorite tonight ~ blowing bubbles. Corey held the bubble container with her left hand, dipped the bubble wand with her right and blew through the wand to create a stream of bubbles. You may think this simple little task is easy; however, her coordination and breath control is monumental!
This is Corey;
I liked blowing bubbles because it makes me happy.
It reminds me of when I was little.
I have happy memories of summer.
Going to the beach
swinging on the swings
playing basketball to beat Jonathan
playing baseball and softball
having sleepovers with my neighbor Allison
This summer I want to go to the beach
I want to walk on the sand and the boardwalk all by myself with no help because I finally can
I want to swim
This summer is going to be so much fun because I can finally do more
Who else is ready for summer? xoxo
