We finally got the Amtryke. I am so excited about it. This is a cool bike that uses arm and leg strength to move. It will help Gage, with what is called disassociation-using his legs separately, instead of together. A lot of the time when he crawls he does a hop instead of the reciprocal, or normal crawl) Gage loves it and he loves that Cathy brought it to him. (Cathy is one of our Physical Therapists, we now have two that we see. She was able to use money that was alloted her from the Learning Center to buy the bike.) It is on loan for awhile, until we don't need it anymore or until Gage turns three. He can now move it at least 2 rotations without any help from me. and we have only had it 24 hours. WOOHOO.

Gage riding his new bike!

Austin wanting to be in the picture with Gage, and both of them doing funny faces for me.

I love this picture. It makes me so happy. Last night while we were walking down the road I was almost in tears watching him work so hard, and having so much fun. He loves having his own bike. I love that it works him, but he doesn't know it. Go Gage Go!!
