Doing the twister

It's not as fun as it sounds. Beats me--it's what they call this thing in Bolivia. Here's Toddler B, sister of the birthday girl of the last post, sporting "el twister" and her two pair of orthopedic shoes:

And playing with sis in the Baby Home's physical therapy room:

Many thanks to the donator of the many lovely dresses! Our little girls LOVE wearing them.

so is this helping her walk any better? or is she kind of having to re-learn? she was so wobbly when I was there...

I was going to ask if you got new dresses! I've noticed them in all the pics - they're beautiful!!!!! And I've never seen S so happy!

It helps her walk a LOT better if the twister is on correctly. Before she tripped over her toes since they were pointed so "in". She'll be in treatment for a year or more overall, by the time they fix her feet as well.

About all those beautiful dresses: they were donated by a family who has a daughter from China (and is in the process of adopting another). They report that she was very happy to see her dresses being used by more children!
