a daddy invention

video

Is this amazing or what? Christopher is almost 2 and he of course is not walking on his own yet... but there are no walkers/ push toys out there that are stable enough for our little guy to strengthen his legs with and to practice walking.
Of course we could get a walker for him, and we will.... but that takes time and lots and lots of money. So, in the mean time daddy created this little walker out of pvc pipes. It is so amazing! He took Christopher to Lowe's with him to measure his hand to all the pvc pipes ( we wanted his hand to fit perfectly around it). Then he brought home a tall piece of the pvc and cut it down to the perfect height for Christopher. he made the legs wide enough and long enough so he could not tip over....Once he had it together Chris was off and walking with it in no time. Every day he gets better and better, and walks longer and longer. The great thing about this walker is it was fast to make and it cost us under ten dollars. Can you believe that? It's great because lots of families cannot afford expensive equipment, yet they have to in order for there kids to grow and progress. This is a great way to have their kids get around in there home. Anyways, we love it, and I am so proud of my husband. He would do anything for his kids. He is always thinking and thinking of ways to help make things as easy as possible for our little Chris. We think he is Superman!

Amazing has been used alot about this post--but it truly is amazing to watch Christopher. You are a lucky family. We all wish you lived just around the block so we could get together more often--but you are in our daily prayers. Continue taking such good care of each other. You are a special family and a great example of faith and hope to all. Lots of love....
