A Happy Happy New Year

Meredith's gait trainer just arrived and she test drove it for the first time this morning. She took to it instantly! She didn't go very far, but she did move a little bit and was trying to take "steps." It was so inspiring to see her trying so hard and really trying to move her legs in the walking motion. It was amazing. We think this is going to be a great mobility option for her. Yay - Mer's world just got a little bigger! If you look closely, you can also see Meredith's manicure, courtesy of Santa's Hello Kitty nail polish!! Yesterday the three of us got to meet her new baby cousin John - congratulations Auntie Beth and Uncle Paul. And now this.... a great start to 2012!

  2. This is awesome!!!! LOVE it! Go Meredith!!!

  3. Hi! My son Connor was recently diagnosed with the FOXG1 mutation as well, he is also 3 (I know Meredith is older now but you said she was 3 @ diagnosis) and he has the same gait trainer Meredith has too! I was just wondering if you would mind messaging me and basically just getting me up to speed on life after diagnosis! my email is I look forward to hearing from you and seeing how well Meredith is doing!!
