well my son has orthotics now. they are little boots that we strap on that stabilize his ankle and help him learn the correct way to stand (i had to choose a design for them, i chose skateboarders). they were expensive but i do think they are helping. so enjoy the pictures of his awesome shoes (you have to buy a size up and make sure they are wide enough) and of him standing and pushing his toy.

i have been trying to find a better solution for my daughter's dress up clothes. throwing them in a bin is not working. she can never find anything. i have seen many cute ideas on pinterest and blogs but they always required me to add more furniture to my daughter's already small room. then the other day i had an idea. why not clear a space in her bookshelf and add a tension rod. so far it is working well.

after my "what scares me" fashion challenge i realized that i will never wear those white pants outside the house. its just too risky. so i dyed them this weekend. now they are a cranberry color. its not exactly the purple i was looking for but i like them and have even worn them 2 times. hurray for rit dye. i have used that stuff to dye pants, dresses and even converse shoes.
i just finished reading Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo. i read it in one sitting with a handkerchief by my side. the only way i can describe this book is that it makes you homesick for a place you've never been, but a place that you know you were meant to spend eternity in.

for my son's therapy his therapist suggested having him play with playdough. so audrey and i made some edible playdough today, because miles is definitely in that "everything must go in the mouth" phase. he was unsure but i think he kind of liked it. it was alittle too sticky so we will add more flour for next time.
