Our little Mermaid

 Yesterday we picked up Rachel's "mermaid"therapy pants . . . . .
 they are designed to help Rachel keep her knees together when she is going into crawling position . . . . .
 to keep her from doing a full middle split to get into sitting position . . . . .
 (here she has managed to show how the pants are supposed to work for her crawling position)
 and finally to help her build her core muscles as she uses proper sitting and crawling techniques.
SO, twice a day for 20 minutes each time, our little girl becomes a little mermaid in hot pink bike shorts, HA.  We are amazed with each new therapy tool used to help Rachel move forward in her skills and developmental milestones.  The  physical therapists really are creative in coming up with things to get the body to do what it is supposed to and to motivate a little one to want to make the effort believe me Rachel can be stubborn when she doesn't want to WORK at it.
Sassy Thing!

  1. Ben has black hip helpers! Since Ben is a little boy I like to say that they are his penguin pants.
