I'm going to take just a second to say that it's hard having a child who's different. I generally try to keep it light and positive but it's hard. Strangers and people who are just acquaintances ask if the twins are walking and getting into everything and it's getting harder when we say Ben is not. When he was a little younger you could just smile and say "No, not yet" and they would just think he was a little late to do it but not realize there was a problem. It was a white lie to avoid telling the story. Now people wonder why our almost 17 month old son doesn't walk. Or crawl. And we have to explain he had a stroke. And it's hard.
And it's hard not knowing when he will walk. Or crawl. Or IF he'll walk. My Momma Instincts tell me he will. When he scoots he uses both legs. He just does it on his side because he can't use his left arm.
My Momma Instincts tell me not to worry. That he'll get there in his own time. That he'll be happy and healthy. And that's all this Momma really wants.
So, without further ado, here is our scooter!
