New shoes and crawling!
Levi got his orthopedic inserts today, and you might be thinking of those discrete little insoles that you place inside your shoe. Oh no. In the Ryska family we go big or we go home. These bad boys fit inside his shoes and go up to cover his calves and are hopefully going to provide his stability as he starts to walk. That is, as soon as we find some shoes that they will actually fit in. I'll get a pic up soon, consider it a miracle if Levi is smiling in it, I have a feeling he is going to put up a good fight while getting used to them.
I got to physical therapy late today, so I didn't get to witness it myself, which I am pretty bummed about but apparently he was full on crawling. Yes, crawling. Big step for Levi, this gets him to a whole new level and will hopefully allow him to be a bit more autonomous. Last night, he also rolled over in bed, another second "first" of his life. It's funny that since he is our second born that his first rolls and crawls didn't quite get as much attention as they might have if he was our first born. (sorry buddy) However, he is sure making up for the lack of sufficient celebration now that he has a second chance in making these milestones! Levi, we are so proud of you!
Some other exciting news that you may have missed is that Kade and Levi are getting a little brother! Yes, come early March we will be preparing our home to welcome a new baby. It still seems overwhelming now to think of having a newborn and Levi to contend with, but I know that a lot can change in the coming months, especially with the progress Levi is making.
The photo above isn't the best shot of Levi, but I wanted to try to get a shot showing the progress on his eye. Pretty good, huh! It's so nice to be able to look at Levi in both eyes.
Off to shoe shop,
