It was a rainy, awful day here. By three o'clock, the rain had well and truly set in, so Dexter didn't go for his usual walk up and down the path outside his house.
Instead, he moved around the lounge room... He rolled and crawled and slid... Furniture has been moved, to give him more area in which to move and still, Dexter gets himself out of the lounge room! This is fantastic progress! He even did some great sitting, and Lenice is putting these improvements down to the theratogs.
And, Lenice was so pleased by this....
School kids walk past Dexter most days. Dexter gets quite a few stares. Some of the kids have started to wave at Charlotte and some are looking Lenice in the eye now.
The other day, one of the boys walked past, and Dexter took some steps in his walker. This young boy looked right at Lenice and, with genuine happiness said, "I've never seen him take steps, before!" He was proud for Dexter.
