It is only fitting that the day after I finished my "running" post, Boo would...LEARN HOW TO WALK!!!!!!! I can't even believe I am typing this. I have dreamed of this day for so long, both literally and figuratively speaking (for those who know my kinds of dreams!). I have so much to do right now, since I have spent the bulk of my day either helping him to start walking (he needs help starting out and then he takes it from there) or announcing the good news, so I do not have time to tell the whole story. We will just say this - THANK YOU to our Shriner's hospital physical therapist, for now our little speed-crawler who, prior to this day had never in his life taken an independent step, has taken a record of 28 consecutive independent steps without stopping. Even our PT didn't expect this! (Today was the first day we saw him). That's all for now. Hopefully I can capture this on video soon.
We became a family on 21 Sept 2007. After plenty of thought and prayer, we decided to start our family, and our precious little Boo was born 1 May 2008. He was born 3 months early, and with a heart defect called Tetralogy of Fallot. Our road with him has been full of bumps and challenges, but we thank our Father in Heaven every single day for the incredible joy he brings to our lives. In spite of his challenges, and perhaps in some ways because of them, we would never trade the experience of parenting this extraordinary child, our little Boo. We now also have two perfect and perfectly healthy little girls, CeeCee and BBB. Everyday is adventure for us, and our children each add so much color to our lives. We have a good life. ;)
