Emmett is already for spring. He's looking forward to lounging around in the backyard and spending time gardening and getting his hands and feet dirty. He is still not too impressed with bright sunlight so sunglasses go a long way towards making him feel more comfortable in the great
outdoors! Of course, once in a while Emmett will show off some of his teeth - two on the top and four on the bottom now. This little boy looks like quite the man with his baseball hat, glasses, and two of his teeth showing.
Like any little boy or girl in spring, Emmett's thoughts turn to ... his wheels! That's right. Emmett got a new set of wheels. His stroller and wagon are still in regular use but Emmett's Occupational Therapist has been working with some University Engineering students and have this amazing electric cart/scooter that Emmett can move about with. Right now he's only using the start and stop button, but eventually it has the potential of forward, reverse, and turn with three buttons that he can activate on his dashboard. To keep things simple, right now only one button is placed on his dashboard. It's so cute!
videos were the first time that the four grandparents saw Emmett in action using it. Lots of laughter taking place. Emmett also has some wrist braces to help him extend and straighten his wrists. This little boy takes everything in stride and doesn't fuss at all with these extras. I guess he knows it's helping him out!
