Over 365 days and 5 walkers later, I think we've found the golden one. I've had my eye on the Crocodile walker for quite awhile now.
I didn't want to purchase it without trying it first. It has taken some work to get access to one. Crew's PT was able to make arrangements with the medical supply store to order one for us to try with no obligation to buy.
Well, we finally got it here and it is sweet! It has a sling seat that keeps Crew from falling over. We put him in and he was immediately "Crewsin" all over the place. It didn't take long (uh, a few seconds really) to decide that it is definately worth buying.
Last night I let him wander while I attempted to make pear bread. Later, we found Crew attacking daddy's plant. Notice the pile of dirt below. His big brothers tried to act like they were mad at him. "Crew Xander you should be grounded...." they said. But I could tell that actually they are just as thrilled as I am to see him mobile and making messes. Just like two year olds are suppose to!
Earlier this week, when it wasn't freezin cold outside, Crew was able to take Mr. Crocodile for a spin. Up and down the sidewalk he went. The neighbors are so good about giving him lots of positive attention and praise. He was grinning from ear to ear.
I'm thinking I will cover some of the edges with felt or something to keep my walls and furniture from getting all scraped up. But for now... I'm just happy he's movin!
He can get to the door.... but he can't get out. This has opened up a whole new level of frustration. The blasted walker is blocking the door from opening. He also wants to open all the drawers and cupboards in the kitchen. Oh, this will never end... But still, I am smiling!
