|Two years ago - where the walking started...|
Once I realised Ashlea could stand and let
go we encouraged her to take a few steps
856. The chance to see Ashlea's class perform in assembly. They did a very cute song about transport with them (and their wheelchairs and walkers) all dressed up as planes, trains, cars and boats;
857. Rachel's hamburgers for dinner;
858. A slightly less untidy house at the end of the day compared to the beginning of the day;
859. Ashlea's amazing walking progress over the last 2 years. From those first shaky steps to Sunday's 2km walk.
Here are Ashlea's first steps in October 2012. Clearly it took me a couple of weeks to make the connection between independent standing and walking. In my memory it occurs on the same day but the photo and video are dated a month apart so there you go.

Compare that to the most recent video of her walking that I have on my phone taken about a month ago at the sports carnival:

I will be glad and rejoice in you;
I will sing the praises of your name, O Most High.
