Jack's braces. He has to wear AFO's to help the heels of his feet land on the floor properly when he walks.
They are kinda bulky, and oftentimes, cumbersome. It took me a good month to totally figure out how to get them on quickly and correctly. It adds time to our already rushed, get ready in the morning routine. It's just one of those preemie things that make me feel all UGH.
But, they help my boy walk. And you can't put a value on that amazingness. And the silver lining here?
Ridiculously cute shoes.
With braces, you have to pick shoes that are wide enough at the opening and wide enough at the toe. And always with laces. No easy velcro will work. Jack has worn his signature white Pumas since he started walking, but come to find out, they are no longer made...wah! So it's a new pair of blue kicks.
I just love these. They look so "Jack" to me.
Silver linings, friends.
