I'm Still Here

It has been a while since I last posted. I have been working non stop. Two weeks ago a girl at the office went to lunch and never came back...we looked at her desk and all of her stuff was gone. SO, I started doing her job and mine. I have been working until about 8 everynight and on the weekends. This week another girl in the office started helping me. We are both doing the other girls job now and it is making my life alot easier!!!

In other news, the charger to my camera is MIA and my camera is dead. I cant charge it, so I cant use it. I am so sad!! Parker has starting really taking steps. He can take about 6 to 8 steps. We videoed him tons last night! I am so proud of him after all of his hard work. He got his braces (AFOs) last week and that is when he really started doing good. I think he will be fully walking in the next month. My dream is that the next time we go into the Cardiology clinic (April 1st) he can walk in holding my hand! Those nurses would just go crazy if they saw that!!! I have been pretty emotional lately about Parker making such huge hurdles after all he has been through. We are still having some issues with eating, but I think that will be a lifelong battle.

Parker started speech therapy last week. His therapist is the cutest thing and Parker just flirts with her. They are already best buds! He is doing good, she is justworking on eating foods without gagging, drinking from a sippy cup, and other stuff.

This past weekend was good. I didnt have to work on Saturday. Me and my mom did a Valentines brunch for some ladies and Dennis took Parker for some "man" time. I think they had lunch at wing stop! After that Parker took a long nap and we just watched tv (it was so nice). Valentines Day is my sister's birthday so we usually just celebrate her birthday, we went out for a family dinner.

What a great hubby I have. Dennis got me the cutest sunglasses for Valentines Day. I had been eyeing them for months.

Anyways, I am still here and will try to post some pictures of Parker walking as soon as I can.

Parker is amazing!! All that hard work in PT is paying off! Owen is 12 months and still won't crawl or bear weight in his legs. We'll get there! :)

Way to go Parker! I can't wait for Teagan to start moving her legs too! Thanks for checkin in on us and leaving a comment, its so fun to see who stops by! You have a beautiful family and it looks like Parker is doing great! Can I ask what the braces are for? Teagan is having a hard time learning to crawl/walk and I was wondering if they'd help her too?!
