Pictures of Pony Walker & More

Last post I asked if anyone had used a Pony Walker to help their child learn to walk as Wysdom is still not really interested in standing. I got a couple of comments asking for a picture of it. So here it is plus a few other pics of Wysdom.

So here is the pony walker.

Wysdom is sleeping now so that is why he is missing. He gets to sit on a little cushion and the idea is that he uses his feet to move the walker and then can become more mobile.

We have only had him in it a few times. He doesn't seem to mind it, however not sure if it will help or not. It is so new that we will keep trying. We do have an appointment for casting for his new SMO's in two weeks.

This is Blyss and Wysdom playing with each other. This position often ends up in someone crying from getting hit in the head by Wysdom head.

This is my little sweetie eating wipes. Yup he is loving it and was even doing it more for the camera. I guess I shouldn't really take his picture while he is doing this. The cute thing is that he will look around and pretend he is doing something and the second you walk away....Yummm Wipes.

Lastly, this is a picture of Quinoa Stuffed Peppers from my foodie blog. Come sign up over there for info on recipes, health tips and fun contests.

We have lots coming up in the next few weeks with Wysdom. An eye appointment, physio, however the biggest and scariest is his echo for his heart on March 14th. Will keep you posted. Have a great week everyone.

I've never seen one of those walkers.

A thought. Will Wysdom stand up at the couch? Can you put some motivators up there that will keep him interested in standing, like some fun toys or say...some wipes! LOL. I would do that with Kaia when she was learning to pull to stand. I took the cushions off the couch so she could reach (she was so short) and put a box of Kleenex on the couch. She loved Kleenex and it encouraged her to try and get them. I don't know if Wysdom is pulling to stand, but if the wipes help motivate him to stay in the standing position it might be worth a try.

Looks delicious....the peppers that is, not the walker, although that looks fun too.

Hey Sasha,

I do not have experience w. the Pony Walker (sorry!) but DO have experience w. a heavy 2 year old who does not quite walk yet!! I'll be curious to hear how you like it...

Also - I am SO excited to see that you have a food blog! I am just now getting into eating vegan (after being veg. for a year) and am learning how to cook some pretty cool meals! : ) Love the look of that delish quinoa!! : )

Thanks everyone for your ideas and your comments. Wysdom is just getting interested in standing at the couch. The issue is he likes to put a lot of the weight on his upper body and arms and then just let's his legs just kind of hang.

We did realize yesterday that dancing in the walker maybe the motivator. Will keep you posted.
