Just wanted to share a few updated pictures of our littlest two. I feel bad that the older boys have been getting significantly less camera time these days but I know it will balance out come baseball and camping season. 🙂 Here is Gus wearing his new shirt (just in case we forget what order he is in the family). 🙂
What a big boy! He’s almost four and a half months old already.
Here is Karolina with her new braces. I tried to get her to smile, but she was not amused by my goofy efforts. 🙂 She’s actually doing great with them and has a firmer foundation when she stands. Her left foot was significantly turned out and affecting her gait and balance. Her occupational therapist was concerned about future hip and knee problems due to the severity of it. She recommended these small braces to correct the issue and improve muscle tone. After getting a second opinion we decided to go ahead. She is a trooper! She’s really made some big progress in the last few months and I love watching her grow. Although raising babies is not new for us, every child is different and Karolina has offered us new areas of adventure. As I have mentioned before, no small accomplishment is taken for granted. She is now clapping (a very big deal), she can give kisses and knows where her nose is. 🙂 She’s not saying any words yet, but I’m not worried. Her speech therapist was only at our home once so far, but I learned several things even in that short visit. It’s also been nice to be outside in the warm weather this week and see her WALK and play! Bring on the ice cream and tulips, we are ready for spring!:)
