So Ava is *finally* walking. Not to the shops and back with the papers but twenty steps and still way too cautious but getting there. We are delighted. Major thanks to the physio in Kildarton who worked tirelessly and used every trick in the book. Kildarton do great great work. Here is a video for reasons best known to myself I flipped my phone halfway through so apologies.
Second had my first experience recently of kids being cruel to Ava. Tough one. We were out and two kids (small but old enough to know better)fully walked over and pointed at her and 'impersonated' her. They were literally standing pointing and laughing a foot from her face, She smiled and waved at them. That couple of seconds put me in bad form for two days to be honest. It taps into the deep rooted fears one has I guess? I mean especially with small kids cos unlike say a rude guy at a Supermarket you cant walk over and smash em over the head with a bottle :-)
Anyway take the good with the bad and its 99% good.
