Gadi + Mom  Glimpse into life of a toddler with Cerebral Palsy 💚 Special needs advocate | Spreading awareness, acceptance and inclusion This is our story.....

We got a package from our special sponsor Linda thru @pjs_for_fighters. They reached out to us if they can send Gadi some stuff. Gadi was really excited with the pj's, books and bubbles! Thank you!

Adaptive bike:
We wanted Gadi to be able to enjoy a bike too.
So before trying to get an expensive adaptive bike approved (wich can be difficult and take months!) We purchased some parts and adapted a kettler trike.
So far Gadi is not really liking it😯 lots of hard work for his legs!
(He really loves Dad's radio thou😄) #LifewithGadi #cpawareness #cpwarrior #cerebralpalsy #cpstrong #perserverance #hardworker #limitless #believeinability #adaptive #outdoorfun #kettlerbike #radio #boardwalk

Exhausted and accomplished!

Spent some family time together at the park + got some walker practice in!
Made sure to pack plenty of drinks in this heat....thanks @ncap1986 for the "my drinky" recommendation!
Gadi can now drink his juice box independently without squeezing it all over the place! (Swipe)

Love this shirt from @wonderfullymade_apparel

De-rotation straps:
Gadi is finally getting to like his walker just a teeny bit!🤗
Gadi's legs rotate inward very badly making it more difficult to walk. The de-rotation straps wrap around each leg "twisting" them outwards and assisting him with having his legs straighter = less stepping on his own toes!

It's all about perspective:
It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see ~

Gadi loves going upside down on the therapy ball!

Good night world!

Gadi is not toilet trained yet and we still have a long way to go before we can even start thinking about it. Diapers that are leak proof have been difficult to find, the overnight ones don't always work. (Gadi takes a bottle before bed with all his vitamins, it helps him fall asleep + he still gets up for a bottle in middle of the night.)
Found these water resistant cloth diapers from @bumgenius. I use the "shell" (without the liner) over a regular disposable diaper. Works 95% of the time!

Happy Mother's Day!

Wanted to do a NICU to Now post in honor of #mothersday.

Gadi was born at 32 weeks and weighed 4.6 lbs (3.5 lb at the lowest) spent 5 weeks in the NICU.
Today Gadi is 2.5 yrs old, weighs 24 lb and is doing GREAT!

The button game:
Love that this toy can be used to target a few things at once. We worked on fine motor, color recognition and wrist rotation + we snuck in some physio and had it up on his therapy bench (tall kneel)!
