Essie was very insistent that she wanted a pink Hello Kitty Bike for Christmas. She even sat in Santa’s lap to tell him!
And of course, he delivered.
But it was up to mom and dad to help her learn to ride it. It actually only took her a few practice sessions to get the pedaling down. I was concerned that it might be too difficult since she wears a prosthetic. I’m not sure I could get the motion of pedaling down so quickly with a prosthetic leg!
Steering on the other hand…..well, we’re still working on that skill 🙂
Later tonight she was talking to Tony and he asked her how was the baby shower and she said,
“I eat cake.”
Her first unprompted sentence!
Excitement would be an understatement for my reaction!
Thank you, Jesus, for how far she has come.
Getting that sleeve on is tough and I was wrestling and tugging and the rep several times typed, “are you still there?” I suppose I wasn’t responding to him quickly enough. I wanted to tell him to get in line, but….
Obviously, I did not get that sleeve on correctly. Sigh. Luckily water won’t hurt it, but I bet it was dragging her down while she was swimming!
