we have a diagnosis....

That diagnosis is called tibial torsion(go look it up lmao) its apparently pretty common, BUT generally by Logan's age it has self corrected. They tend not to treat it because it IS a self correcting issue, there are several reasons that they do treat it though and they are:

*torsion worsening(Logan's has been STEADILY getting worse since he was 11mos old)
*frequent tripping(again, something else that concerns me b/c this causes him to trip)
*difficulty wearing shoes(all of his shoes hurt him no matter how big I get them)

and i'm sure there's another one, but I don't remember and I'm too lazy to look it back up. He is also extremely flat footed. So we go to Nemours on tuesday to see the ortho. I'm stoked that his appointment is so close, usually it takes MONTHS but they happen to have a cancellation and we were able to get in(YAY!!) the only set back is that his actual appointment time is 7:45a.m. so we have to be there even EARLIER than that. BLAH!
