Arthur's Walker

Today we realized that Arthur was ready for his walker, and hope that this will encourage him to take his first steps sooner. And as soon as we gave it to him, he quickly showed us that he knew how to work it. This video is from the first time he tried it (that's Coraline's voice warning him of impending impact). Since then, he has been working on trouble shooting. He found that if he pushes hard, he can get it past most obstacles in the room (though Betty and Coraline have proven to be too big a speed-bump to go over). What to do when he got to the end of the room proved to be a challenge, but it didn't take him too long to figure out a solution. Now he carefully walks to the front of the walker, pushes it back to the center of the room, and then moves to the rear so he can begin pushing anew. For now though, we think it is safest for him to use when his sisters are off the ground.
