Hair cuts and standing up March 7, 2008

All my boys got hair cuts today, but the most dramatic one is the only pictures you will get. Here is Andy before: I wanted him to grow it out and be shaggy, so he will tell you that THAT was for me, but that is so far from what I was thinking. lol Here is inbetween-we had some fun. 🙂and here is after-he keeps complaining that his head is cold. 😉Did you notice what he was doing in the ‘before’ picture? Here is a farther away shot. 100% weight bearing means he can stand and walk! He has been walking with a walker at therapy and tomorrow we will be getting his walker. (so many funny jokes are being thrown for that. lol) He is loving this new step. He is loving being able to walk and the prospect of more freedom. He has kept saying he will be walking by summer so we can go camping and it looks like it is happening. WooHoo!  


We are Moved March 6, 2008

We moved last Saturday-we had TONS of help and it went super fast-we were done in about 2 hours. We are all so grateful for everyone who came. I got a bunch unpacked that day and have slowly been working on the rest. Andy had been sick the week before, Stryker threw up Sat. night and Alex followed close behind. I am not feeling that great and now my sister is really sick. It’s making it hard to get anything done here! I think we are on the upswing. Alex is going to go to his new school for the first time tomorrow. Let’s just hope Charlie doesn’t get sick. Andy is doing great-He is feeling much better. Yesterday he had an appt with Dr. Butterfield and he got cleared for 100% weight bearing. 100%!!! We are getting a walker for him(lol) and today at therapy he got to use a walker and walk-on land! It’s so exciting! He has had a goal to walk by summer so we can go camping easier and it looks like it’s going to happen! We are all super excited.
