And we thought it would stifle her enthusiasm…
Granted, she’s had her moments of misery, whimpering to be held. And set down. And held. And set down. And held by someone else. And then set down again. But all things considered, Avery has been a complaintless heroine.
And I have been an unapologetic fool in my bid to entertain and delight.
Thank you all for your incredible words of sympathy, advice and humor. We’ve used it all. And, in true headstrong, do-it-myself fashion today, Avery has decided to walk. That’s right, down for less than two days. The doc said as soon as she was ready she could walk on it…

Hey, I didn't know you could spin that thing around with kiddos inside! Great idea.
So is it a good thing Avery is walking?
Kids are amazingly resilient! Oh, and that video looks like one of those exercise tapes in the making to me! LOL!
Initially, I thought the title said "Convalescent Darling." Well, yes. That too!
Damselfly, her walking is a great thing indeed. She is so much happier knowing that she can if she wants.
Another thing, the little sit and spin toys, perfect for daring kids with broken legs!
Cool!! I can't believe she was brave enough to start walking on it. She is like her momma, isn't she!
Can I come over for a spin in that thing?! The little "again" at the end . . . priceless! If I had a nickel . . .
That looks like fun! I want a turn! 🙂
Oh my gosh she IS a go-getter isn't she? She's fine – what a sweetie!
Good for Avery (and for you!) If she has figured out how to walk on her cast it will make it so much easier.
And that spinning… looks like a great new exercise!
Aw, I had a feeling she'd adapt like a champ. And you? With the tube and the running in circles? Brilliant.
You're a GOOD mom. And look at her cheery little face!
You're such a good sport! I kind wish I was in that er..uh..tunnel thingy? right now…also, had that been me spinning kids around, I would have fallen flat on my face immediately afterwards. Good form! You get a 10! 🙂
I want to smooch her!
Horray for brave, strong little girls!
She's gonna be fine. You too. 🙂
And of course, the first word after it stops is "Again."
She is definitely a tough one!
Love the composition on the photos too!
Thought I'd share this hilarious post, LOL! No matter how rough our days are they can always be worse, hahahaha
oh, poor kid.
and who knew that there were waterproof casts? go figure.
glad she's up and about.
No wonder you're so damn skinny already!
What we won't do for our babies, right? Wonderful!
