We have spent more time outside as the weather warms and it brings to light another thing we are trying to deal with - holes in clothing and bleeding knees. Every single time Mason plays in the backyard (crawling) he tears holes in his pants or shorts at the knee. And if I don't catch it soon enough he also tears up his knees and they bleed. We have been on the search for a good solution, especially as it warms up and Mason wants to play outside for hours with his siblings.
The other thing Mason is really working on is transferring into and out of the wheelchair from the floor. It's hard work. We started with a large pillow to climb on in front of the wheelchair, then he used the foot plate and seat to climb up. Now we've progressed to a thinner pillow he climbs up from. His right leg causes some problems because it is still contracted and gets in his way, caught on the brake bar, but he's determined and usually finds a way to get the leg pulled around it. He is so small that it is too hard yet for him to get into the wheelchair from the floor, but as the pillow he is using only gives him about 2 inches in height I suspect he'll be strong enough to do it directly from the floor in the next year.
Getting down is another thing all together. His preference is diving right off the seat - not a great idea with wood floors. His legs can get caught up on the wheelchair and it's just something we're discouraging. Instead we're trying to teach him how to push up with his hands and slide his bottom forward and down to the foot plate and down from there.
Well, I suppose I had more to share than I expected! I think that is everything new going on with Mason right now.
