Day 5 with Mike and Esme stood unaided for 10 seconds – to see it was a true vision for things to come for Esme. This week she has worked very hard, yes we’ve had tears and tantrums but so would anyone else doing daily 2 hour sessions with a personal trainer!
Esme has not only physically developed this week but she has found confidence and belief in her own ability to achieve what she wants – balance and standing unaided being just the first we’re sure. We have noticed already ‘carry me’ has changed to ‘i want to stand up, i’ll walk’ which is fantastic to hear.
We are taking it easy this weekend as we look forward to another 5 days and beyond that, a different future with Esme. This week has really focussed on addressing Esme’s weaknesses and it’s certainly achieved that.
This video shows Mike working with Esme to help her learn and understand what she needs to do to balance, whilst she talks constantly…..as usual.
