Look What Grandpa Made!

Thanks to Grandpa Lieck, Grace now has her own set of parallel bars! For about $30 of PVC pipe, this cool set of bars was made by Grace's very creative and handy grandfather. We love them and they work perfectly. She is able to practice her forward stride and cruising at home with these. Plus they are light enough for me to stand on end and put in the corner when not using. They are perfect!!

Grace looks taller and heavier and in the second picture she and Sophie look more alike. Great to see her doing so well.

We need some of those!!! I don't think Eden could step over the bars on the floor though... I have to think of another idea. But this is something we've been meaning to do and now I am feeling inspired again. Grace looks great!

Oh my goodness! We are totally going to need some of these at our house very soon! I wonder if Charlie's grandpa is handy?

What would we do without grandpa's? This is amazing!
