Ordering Braces for Maddie

Today I ordered braces for Maddie to insert in her shoes.  They are supposed to help her stand more sure footed.  I really hope they work and she doesn't get mad when I try to put them on her. I really want her to walk before her 2nd birthday, which is next month.  So I hope they are delivered quickly.

I think she liked it!

Just an update

Time is going by so quickly.  We had a meeting to determine if Maddison is eligiable to go to school in September.  SCHOOL IN SEPTEMBER, WHAT?????  At 13 weeks pregnant when we had a 1:4 chance of having a baby with Ds I was told from that moment, "The baby will never leave, it will live with you forever, you will always have to care for it".  Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine she would be going to school at 2.  At the meeting I starting crying.  Thinking of her already "leaving"  had my heart hurting.  My little girl that will be 2 in 1 month is being considered for a school program.  It's only 2 days a week for 3 hours.  That is equal to my other kids when they went to preschool, when they were 4.  I know this could be good for her and what a great opportunity it would be.  Hopefully the 7 months I have to think about this, I will not be crying, I will be excited, but I doubt it.  Then they brought up the bus.  I just laughed, she can't walk yet.  They said oh that's okay we stroll them up the bus in their stoller and the load them on.  Which is funny since I just started letting my 7 and 8 year old ride the bus!  To no avail if she goes to school I can definately say she will not be riding the bus.  I just wish I knew the best thing to do for her, let her go or keep her at home just one more year????
