Video from Special Rodeo

We still haven't developed the disposable camera from the rodeo, but there is a video on their website.

If you have some extra time, and are in a sentimental mood, watch it. One of the twins is in it, looking at someone in a cow costume (very briefly)

There is some debate in our family about which twin it is! Well, they are identical.


In other news, we are getting a physical therapy evaluation. This is nothing to do with autism. The twins each have a slight leg length discrepancy, due to extensive birthmarks (fading gradually) which somehow inhibit growth and muscle development. This used to be what kept me up nights, before the whole autism thing. Our pediatrician sent us to a leg lengthening specialist, before the twins were even a year old. What I learned from that visit is that leg-lengthening is something you really do not want your child to need.

I'm hoping the physical therapist will check them out and say that the discrepancy is nothing serious. They don't limp, as far as I can tell at this point. If the discrepancy stays small, they can wear lifts in their shoes, which sounds great compared to the alternative.

G. had a little feeding therapy today, and ate a speck of whipped cream on a goldfish cracker.
Every day has its triumphs!

Every day does, indeed, have its triumphs! Some more obvious than others. I will keep good thoughts for you and your boys. I hope the evaluation leads to the answers you hope to find...

Hope the PT eval gives you useful information. I love the whipped cream on the goldfish...sounds like a combination Nik would come up with! LOL

Whipped cream on a gold fish, huh? I prefer mine with strawberries. To each his own...

I'll keep you in my prayers for the shoe lift alternative!

I hope all goes well for the boys. One more thing to worry about I guess. Great news on the new food, every bite counts.
