Skipping To The Beat Of Her Heart

She rarely walks now. She prefers to skip. Sometimes she even skips in a purple tutu. It took her a long time to learn to walk. Less than two years ago she still wore a helmet on the playground, in case she fell. 

Now she’s running, jumping and skipping. And when she skips, her strides are only slightly smaller than the grin on her face. She’s proud of herself and with good reason. 

I wish I could take credit for her reaching this physical milestone—one that a child with significant gross motor delays might never achieve. Her EAs at school have been working with her on this for months, and it finally paid off. How amazing are they and how lucky are we? I’m so grateful…I could literally skip.

Here are 35 seconds of super skipping stupendousness, LIVE and in technicolour. 

Caution: This video skips, but in a good way. 🙂
