Merry Christmas!!

Christmas Dinner

Merry Christmas everyone!! Zachary has had a very eventful week. Last weekend he seemed very lethargic, didn't sleep very well Friday night, and was very stuffy on Saturday. Monday was his one year pediatrician appointment, and at that visit we learned he had an ear infection. After picking up his amoxicillin, and heading home for some rest, we decided it was not in Zach's best interest to fly to Arizona that night as we had planned. So the short trip to Grandma and Grandpa's had to be postponed, and plenty of rest and time spent at home were in order. The good news is he improved greatly with each day through the week, and was close to his old self for Christmas. He enjoyed opening his gifts from Santa, and hasn't put the drum stick down yet! Mommy's musical talents have definitely rubbed off on Zachary. We enjoyed a quiet day with just the three of us, and our turkey dinner when Zach decided to start to eat corn kernels from his tray, much to the surprise of Mommy and Daddy! The week ahead should be fairly low key, we do have Zach's one year head MRI on Tuesday to track the size and progress of his fontanelles and to ensure his shunt is still functioning properly.
We wish you all a very Merry Christmas, and a healthy and prosperous New Year!!
Love and God Bless - Brian and Kimmie

  2. Happy New Year! I've been meaning to get back to you about Kids Mobility, the organization we got Alex's stander from. We haven't gotten anything else from them but we do know they have other equipment and it's really affordable. Here is a link to the website:

    We'd love to meet up some time this year. Alex and Zachary would make such cute playmates together!
