Shiny Blue Wheels and March for Babies

This week James's wheelchair arrived. At first observation, it was the tiniest chair I've ever seen. James was initially not too impressed but soon figured out just how well he could get around using his wheels. 

We've been on a few adventures the last few days- the store, in the neighborhood, out on the deck, the mall; and James has been a rock star figuring out how to maneuver his wheels around. James is so happy and proud that he lights up whenever we use it. Most people see wheelchairs and feel pity or disappointment; we see ability and freedom to move without limits. He's pretty amazing and we are very proud of him. 

We walked in our fourth March for Babies. This year was quieter than prior years but we still had an opportunity to see our friends and celebrate our preemies. 

James took his wheels and Maisie walked until she was dragging and then rode in a stroller the rest of the way. We spent a good amount of time on the playground and enjoyed the cloudy and overcast weather.
