I know y’all have been through one of these posts already, and I debated even taking my camera yesterday. But bear with me! This was Honor’s appointment, and I want to make her milestone experiences just as special. That girls is mere seconds, SECONDS, away from walking independently. In fact, as soon as the orthotist put on her braces and stood her up, she let go and smiled at him. We’re hoping to have both girls walking with ease by age two, and out of the braces by age three.
Isaiah Jane has always been the pink & purple girl, and her footwear is no exception – pink braces, purple Chuck Taylors. Honor typically wears more blue & green (look at me, acting like she chooses her own outfits), so I ordered blue SMO’s to complement her green Chucks.
Remember, supramalleolar orthotics provide stability & support for feet that sink inward on the arches. Isaiah Jane has weak muscle tone all over, where Honor simply has flat feet. In fact, Ames has the same issue. It’s why he’s so knock-kneed! He’ll just have to learn to self-correct it as he gets older. Apparently, I handed down the trait to the babies. Thanks to all of the strict dance teachers I had growing up, I never noticed I had a problem until I started investigating recently.
Here’s to another step in our journey to sisters who walk!
