Sorry I haven't posted in a few weeks. Summer has been so busy!! Fun but busy. We have been traveling and just enjoying the warm weather. Things here are good. Andrew has been standing for a little while at a time on his own. I feel like he is so close to walking. Every night we walk around the block with him while he pushes his  red wagon. His legs are getting stronger and stronger. I hope everyone is having a good summer! It is going too fast.

Below are some pics of this weekend. We went to the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado. It is about three hours north of where we live. The Stanley Hotel was the setting of the The Shining. It was actually really beautiful and we didn't see any evil twins on tricycles..haha.

July 4th

Happy July 4th weekend! I hope everyone had a good one. We took a trip to New Mexico it was so much fun. Below are some pics.

I realized I have been just been posting pics of what we are up to and not really saying much about how Andrew is doing. Andrew now says three words-hi, dog and dad. He started to see a speech therapist last week so I'm hoping his vocabulary will expand soon. He is still walking along the furniture but not taking steps on his own. He was fitted for braces last week and will start wearing those a few hours a day. We are hoping it will give him the confidence to walk on his own. The doctors see no reason why he can't. He has full leg function and movement. They think he just needs to get the hang of it. Everything health wise has been good (knock on wood). I definitely don't take anything for granted. After we took that big trip to Hawaii I was holding my breath hoping he would be fine. Last summer when we travelled he would get run down and sick but after his spinal surgery in January he seems to be doing a lot better (again knock on wood). It is crazy having a two year old. He developed a personality overnight. He is funny, kind and loves animals. He has his typical two year old moments but overall we really lucked out when God chose us to be his parents.

Happy 4th of July
