What do I miss most? The playground. We found a really nice one last spring -- Damien's therapist tipped us off. It's become one of our favorites for when we have a long break between appointments. We can run up to a close-by grocery store, pick up a few things for the house plus some snackies, and duck over to the park. We have a picnic in the gazebo, and then play on the wooden castle playground.
There have been a few trips to duPont where Damien has been on two feet instead of in the stroller. Of course, he has wanted to try walking along the planters. He needs help climbing up, but he is getting good at heel-toe stepping. Last summer, he wouldn't even climb up on the beams, so I wonder if they will have found something new to fight over.
The best challenge at this park is all the steps. There are very few slides, so once you are up, from most of the playset, the only way down is back down the steps. It's a great core workout, so it's great physical therapy for him -- something we have struggled with over winter. We have steps in our house, but it's not exactly the same. Or as fun.
Hurry up, spring!!!
We miss you!
