Mr. Boy's boots and bar are finally off during the days! Mr. Boy now only has to wear them at nights for about 3 years, but he no longer has to wear them 24 hours a day! woo hoo! Mr. Boy loves his new found freedom and wiggles his feet and legs happily all day long. I don't know if we are more excited, or Mr. Boy! The boots were heavy and awkward and thus made it awkward to hold Mr. Boy. And as many of you know, I am not the best with babies. Before Mr. Boy, I'd probably held a total of 5 babies in my entire life, and I'm certain I was uncomfortable while doing it. It's not that I didn't like babies, I was just terrified of the foreign little creatures. :) I think by now I've got the hang of it. But you can see why it'd be so nice to finally be able to hold him like a normal cuddly babe.
We don't like going so long without updating the blog but we'd got it into our heads that we should only post new medical things happening with Mr. Boy. For the first 6 months of his life, as his medical status was changing almost daily, that was easy to do. But now life is finally slowing down and we are feeling more like a relatively normal little family. I actually shouldn't say that life is slowing down... buying a house is crazy and we feel like chickens with our heads cut off, but its perfect timing for Mr. Boy's medical surprises to stop popping up left and right.
