Walker (Kittitas Ranger?)

Evan's OT, Gail, brought Evan a different style of walker to try. It reminds me a little bit of a hand truck. This walker works in a way that is more intuitive for Evan--when he feels like using it!

The last time we tried his other walker, he kept wanting to turn so he was facing the back and push it that way. Since that walker has a lock on the wheels to keep it from going backwards, it didn't work so well.

With this one, he lifts the handles just a bit, pushes forward, and he's off! I was not able to get very good pictures of Evan in action. As for most activities these days, he'll do it if it's HIS idea--otherwise, no way! When he was using the walker, he zipped away so fast I could hardly snap a photo.

Evan, if you could add a little basket to the front of your walker, you could take the dog and the cat for a ride.

You look so grown up.
