Harper had a great, albeit brief, appointment with Dr. Trainor earlier this week. Dr. Trainor, a physiatrist who specializes in helping kids with rehabilitation needs, says we should expect Harper to be independently ambulatory – meaning she’ll be able to walk on her own. Harper will likely need bracing on her feet to help straighten and strengthen them so she can start learning to walk. To aid in walking and standing, Dr. Trainor suggested we help Harper strengthen her upper body as much as possible now so she’ll be ready in a few months. We’ve already been working on that some with her physical therapist who says she’s got really good upper body strength already.

Here are some new photos to enjoy.
