I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14

The Good Days!!!

We are doing great!  Sorry for the lack of updates.  I recently went back to work a few weeks ago, we are moving this weekend, and we took our FIRST family vacation!  We have been busy!  We got the opportunity and Carter is finally well enough to travel more than an hour away from the hospital, so we went to the beach.  Carter absolutely LOVED the beach!  He wanted to be in the ocean the entire time.  He walked up and down the beach at least 100 times a day and would happily run straight into the ocean.  It felt so good to see him so happy.  The only time he got upset is when we would leave the beach. 

Carter has continued to gain weight.  We have started purposely slowing his weight gain down, because he has started having trouble walking.  With his hips being turned out, he does not have the balance or stability a child his age should have.  We will be traveling to Johns Hopkins in August to see his urologist and neurosurgeon. We hope to find out what the next step in his care will be.  We will also travel to Cincinnatti Children's in September to re-evaluate his intestinal issues.  We are so thankful for Carter's well days and have really enjoyed having him out of the hospital.  It has been wonderful to see him enjoying life.  Thank you so much for all of your faithful prayers.  To Him be the Glory!

 Our first family vacation.
 Should I get in?
Da-da and Carter. 

 Carter LOVES ducks, so of course he loved his duck robe!
