What do you think? Roo's new wheels are awesome, right?

Monday morning I was scheduled to go in early to Roo's school so I could pick up his new bath seat (later post). When I walk in I see a pretty shiny blue KidWalk (walker) close by. So, of course, I start getting SO excited!

Yes! This was Roo's new wheels. His KidWalk had come in! We appreciated the use of the Rifton the school had let us borrow so Roo could get around but he has so much more fun and can actually maneuver his KidWalk a lot easier.

The Rifton (as do most gait trainers and walkers) has wheels that stick out in front and would get stuck on everything. This KidWalk has everything beside or behind him. Now IF he could use his hands he would be able to reach to open doors, turn the t.v. off and on (he has already been checking this option out), and easily get around corners.

This is so great to have this piece of medical equipment as it helps him feel a little more independent and let's me get other things done since he can move around on his own.

Today his daddy went to pick him up from school so I could go work out and when I pull up into the driveway they were outside playing. Roo was rolling around everywhere and quickly. He also was so much happier tonight and actually went to sleep easier.

This is a good work out for HIM and will help him build his muscles!

(p.s. for those few of you that read both of my blogs, sorry for the dup posts. i just wanted to show the KidWalk to those that may not follow Roo's blog...I was so excited.)

That is a very cool looking piece of equipment. I have never seen one of those before. I have had kids that used Riftons and I agree that there are some problems.
