The mind is willing, but the flesh is weak.

A little more detail on her brace. Her lower legs are totally free, but the upper legs are held in a split position by the front and back metal bars, and the leg cuffs, which are velcro'd into place. [Spellcheck refuses to accept that spelling of 'velcro'd', but I like it. Take that, spellcheck bitches.]

She's trying to pull herself up - and she'll get there, but I think for now the muscles are a little weak. I'm very glad that she has the memory of standing, and wants to be there again. I'm not sure if she'll walk unassisted in the brace, but all signs point to yes.

that was the brace alexandra had from 0-3months. i only took it off to change her diaper and bathe her. god i thought it was awful at the time. now of course i know its so nothing and much better than a purple cast. baby scarlett looks awesome but then again she also did when she was purple! = perfect child
