All About Kolby

Kolby falls asleep about once or twice a month while eating lunch. I had to document the day he fell asleep with a bite of peanut butter and jelly in his mouth. It is not the cutest picture of him nor his finest moment. And yes, I did make sure to get it out before laying him down. And yes, he stays asleep while I wipe his face and hands and change his diaper.

Kolby wears his Denis Brown bar or Foot Abduction Bar at night only (he was born with bilateral club foot). He crawls with it on, pulls himself to standing and tries to walk around the furniture. It is pretty funny to watch and neat to see that it doesn't hold him back. He used to unscrew the bolt from the bottom of the shoe in the morning, but he hasn't done that in awhile. We expect Kolby to wear it until he is four years old. So far, it doesn't bother him at all, I pray it never does. It would be too easy to take it off and then he could relapse and we would be back to square one.

My favorite thing, rocking Kolby. He doesn't often let me anymore, so I take advantage of it when I can.


  1. He is funny - and I think the asleep picture will be great in a wedding video someday!

  2. sweet. Sometimes I think I could fall asleep while eating too!

    I'm glad his brace doesn't bother him. I have a cousin who had to wear one, but she was older when they started to use it. I know it was really hard

  3. He is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO cute, Kiki! Oh my goodness; that last photo is priceless. The look on your face just pretty much says it all, don't you think?

    I continue to be amazed at medical technology, etc... I wonder how long ago it would have been that Kolby would have had to walk with a limp for his entire life. And now, in the year 2007, it can be totally corrected!

    May I sound like our very own Sandy when I say, "praise God!" :)
