I wanted to make my first blog an update on the boys! Both are doing REALLY well. Jameson turns 1 next month and is having a pool party on Aug. 2nd! I cant believe my BABY isnt a baby anymore! He is SO sweet and such a big boy now! Jaxon will turn 5 in October and is fascinated with telling time and "reading"! He is an amazing big brother and always willing to help! Both boys are TOTAL water babies and LOVE going swimming! We have had a great summer and spend almost everyday at the pool now that Jamie is out of the casts! Here are the most recent pics I have of the boys!

Things are going well with Jamie. We finally got ahold of the chrisofix (see below) which is an alternative to the boots and bars. Jameson cannot handle the boots and bars for 12 hour periods. His skin is too sensitive and we have to make sure the boots are on really tight or he kicks them off, so we have decided to go a different route. We ordered the chrisofix last week from Dublin and it can take up to 28 days to arrive so we are waiting patiently!

Here are the details on the Chrisofix:

Chrisofix Club Foot Corrector For Babies
This small Club-Foot Corrector is very light and does not burden the baby in any way. It provides extremely low risk for inducing decubitus. Easy to make corrective re-adjustment and to remove and re-apply for hygienic purposes. Indications: For correction of deformities of the feet (e.g. pes adductus, pes calcaneus, pes supinatus etc.); For ensuring the correction of feet abnormalities after surgery or after application of a circular plaster cast. Splints are covered with cotton and polyamide and fixed with a hook and loop fastener.
