Bertrand walks (with some help)

Bertrand started trying out Gait trainers at Shriner's today.

He's not a pro yet, but we had brief moments where we could see lightbulbs going off. I think with time and patience, we can teach Bertrand to associate his feet with moving.

Once or twice, Bertrand pushed with his feet.

Matthew has a coaching session with Bertrand.

Matthew tries a time-tested technique for stubborn Casanovas: reverse psychology.


  1. Awesome! I hope he gets to practice on our harwood floors in the near future. Miss you all. Love you.

  2. I am so happy that Bertrand used his feet at some point. Also he looked very at ease in the walker, like a pro. Matt, you did a great job coaching and I am sure Cristina was encuraging B too. Great job. Please give Bertrand a bear hug from me.
    MY love,

  3. Que lindo! He looks like a Big Boy! I am sure he will master it soon!
