Laelia can now knee walk!!! She took her first steps (on her knees) on 8/15/11!!!

So amazing!!!

I had doctors tell me when she was born that she would never walk. We fired them!

Now we fly to Philadelphia for the best doctor: Dr. van Bosse!!!

Laelia can knee walk!!!

They said NEVER! Ooooooooooh!! They gave up on a baby!! Grrrrrrrr! She’s going to dance on their desks one day. DANCE I SAY!

This demands a celebration so we’re going to have a party! Details pending. Everyone’s invited!

Here are four videos because I went a bit video crazy. (I’m crying in the background for some of these. Please ignore. :’))




Laelia likes to walk!


Laelia goes boom. :)


We took this one for Daddy. :)


Laelia sets a goal and then walks towards it! Love this!!!

    You are amazing. Keep up the good work.
    One day she will do the happy dance on those Dr’s desks. I hope you record it too! You’re an amazing mama Alexis ((HUGS))

    This is great! It just goes to show how important it is to *not give up*. You guys are doing a wonderful job of that.

    I’m curious- how much weight is she pushing? Is that to build her strength or just to increase traction so the cart doesn’t get away from her?

    Baggins–it’s for increasing traction. Without it the cart just slides away from her too easily.
