Here are Austin's new goods. He is graduating his left foot to a much smaller brace which is good news. His feet have grown so much but they always make the AFO's so big so he doesn't need to get them redone but maybe once a year. His new Nike's are super cool looking albeit a bit "clown-feet-ish" as they are so big. He's complained a bit about the new left one feeling painful on his heel. I'm hoping after a few days he gets more comfortable. And so far, knock on wood he hasn't dirfed in the dirt tripping over them because they are oversized. He was running tonight and was thankfully able to catch his balance when he did trip up a bit the one time I saw. He's had a great summer regarding balance. He can run in Crocs now and I don't worry as much about him falling. He's also made a lot of progress on his trike. I will have to take some video. He still can't turn at all but he can pedal down the sidewalk quite far. Summer is always a great progression time, this one was no different. Yay Austie!
P.S. The boys had a field trip today with the school and Jill posted a video of Austin casting on her blog. It's awesome, you have to check it out!
