Life is Beautiful

This is somewhat off-topic, but since I don't have another blog to put it on at the moment I thought I'd just share it here.  When I first heard the song "Life is Beautiful" by The Afters, my mind started running and I immediately felt the need to use it for a montage.  My brain sort-of works like that.  I am constantly seeing beautiful things in my head swirling around and my outlet is usually photography or videography.  I'm by no means any sort of professional, I just love sharing what's inside.  So, without further ado- here is our latest family video collaboration.

Song: Life is Beautiful
Artist: The Afters

Wrapped Up!

There hasn't been much to post about since last time, except for the great change Kingston's head is making.  We can see a lot of good progress and movement, which is exciting!  We got his crown decorated!  We decided to go with something that the older boys would love, since they are Kingston's best buddies and it would add some excitement around the place.  We went to a place called Evolution Graphics in Austin.  It was really hard trying to figure out exactly what we wanted the end result to be, since the possibilities are endless!  I came across this idea (<--click) and really thought it looked great, so I decided we would get something similar.
We had another appointment today and again everything is looking great.  We really love going to the appointments because the staff is just so KIND!  I wish every office had people so friendly and welcoming!  This morning Kingston was greeted by THREE excited ladies who just had nothing but smiles and cuddles for him.  Kingston, of course, just gave back his sweet smiles!  We are on a two-week schedule now, which is great because gas prices just keep rising!  We have about a month and a half left to go!  He's still doing well with the helmet.  He's not phased at all by it, it's become a normal part of life.  I even forget that there's a reason people are looking at him longer than normal, until occasionally a little child says something- in which it's always sweet and innocent and cute.  I've actually come across a few other people that have or are going through the same situation, which is kind of neat.  I found an adorable little girl through Instagram who just got her helmet and it's perfectly pink!

Kingston (standing!) at his appointment with his bank robber attire.  They use the stocking to keep the hair down so they can see the skull shape.

The left is Kingston's head mold, made out of concrete.  It's not the best picture (from phone) but if you could see the change in person you would be impressed!

Seriously?  This face kills me!  Ahhh!
