Video of Levi Learning to Balance in Gait Trainer

Levi has been so motivated and trying hard to learn control of his body.  The gait trainer that our physical therapist loaned us doesn't have a headrest, so we have used a piece of sturdy cardboard to keep him from throwing his head back too hard and hurting himself.  Recently I decided to let him try to go without it.  He's showing so much desire to hold his head and trunk himself!  His head still falls forward and back, but most times he catches it before falling too far.  He also doesn't fit as snugly without the cardboard, so he has to watch the rest of his body as well.  I think he's doing an excellent job!
