This is what they mean by hypermobile joints...



And nope, it isn't a fluke.

That's making my knee ache just looking at those pics! I'm totally impressed.

Eek! I am in pain just looking at that! lol...

BTW, saw your tweet, and I totally think you should go on the 6th. At least, if you think you can handle the test too, because obviously that's important... But it sounds like a great opportunity!

Wow.........ouch.

Mimi said...

Holy crap. Wow. Get that kid in yoga, not least to build up some supporting muscles around those hypermobile joints.

She's so bendy!

Err that is just WRONG! Though as someone with hypermobile joints (though not as bad as your Miss Kaytar) I suggest definately getting her enrolled in something like yoga or pilates to strengthen the muscles around the joints, otherwise you will find as she gets older her body will tend to not necessarily do what she wants it too.
Though IIRC she has lowish muscle tone as well? This might be contributing to the hypermobility.

I can place bets that in about three years I will have VERY similar pictures of gabby doing maneuvers like that. CRAZY!

My jaw is hanging open, though not in a hyperextended way (I think).

Karen said...
