So close to independent mobility

We are finally getting Chase to weight bear on his legs with this cool little contraptions.  Been many months of physical therapy leading up to this point but I think he's making some great progress.  He is 21 months old and for some reason, just prefers to use his upper body to transport himself from place to place.  As you can see from the drool on his shirt, he keeps my floors spic n span as he drags his body across my tile.  It comes in handy!!

In the picture to the left, you can see he wears special braces for his feet.  They help prevent him from locking his knees when he tries to walk.  So proud of my little man.  Things are slow going but he rarely complains.  Keep it up Chasers!
