Rough week. Oia still is not walking since her ankle sprain incident last Saturday. In fact, she basically is flat out refusing it. She may stand when helped to her feet but she bears no weight on her right leg at all and stands crying for help. Any attempt to make her walk is under great protest which results in a fussy Oia flopping to her knees to crawl. We've spent a week trying to work her through this but to no avail. I've hit a wall and feel completely helpless. This is not what I envisioned for her first day of preschool.
