Just wanted everyone to go and check out my wedding album that I just finished. I started doing online digital scrapbooking. I love it and I will never go back to the old way of scrapbooking. Here is the link to the album-http://www.heritagemakers.com/?event=projectBrowse&projectId=bc26cdb1-9a32-4346-af7e-3a5c20c946d9&productId=11&projectSponsor=293148

So this is Caitlin's new thing. Everytime I turn around I have a tower of Pediasure somewhere in the house. I keep Hunter's Pediasure in the dining room. There is usually an open case and it never fails, Caitlin gets into it. As you can see, she is very good at stacking the cans. I thought it was too funny and had to get a picture.

Well, I just wanted to catch everyone up on what is going on with us. We have finally made the decision to get a feeding tube for Hunter. He has gradually gotten worse with his eating and we feel now that it is needed to keep him healthy. We are hoping that by doing this he will have more energy to progress with therapy and maybe he will begin to eat because he isn't forced to. He had to get an Upper GI today and was a real trooper. The actual surgery will be on April 17th. It is an overnight stay at Primary Children's Hospital. We will have to attend a class while we are there to learn how to take care of the tube. I am very nervous about all this, but know that we are doing the right thing. Hopefully this will be the last thing that we have to get done for Hunter as far as medical procedures go. Wish us luck!

Today Caitlin finally took her first steps. She has been cruising around on everything, so we knew it wasn't going to be long. She has stood by herself a few times, but never really had the balance. Well tonight she let go and took a few steps. We were soooo excited! It is such a different experience for us. We are so proud of her and look forward to all the new things to come.:)

Here are a few pictures of some of the things Caitlin is starting to do lately. It has been a whole different experience with her. She is now signing certain things. In a few of these pictures she is signing "eat". She is starting to walk with her walker/stroller all over the place and can even turn it to get it in the direction she wants to go. I also finally go her to drink from a sippy cup. For the longest time she would only take the straw kind. I hate those because you can't get the straws clean. We are so proud of our little girl. She is such a joy and a great little sister to Hunter.
So this is how Dwayne dresses in the winter time. I think it looks hilarious. A winter coat, shorts, thermal socks, and crocks!:) Only Dwayne-LOL
So last Saturday the 21st a bunch of Zeta's got together for dinner at Iggy's. I didn't know most of them because they joined after I had graduated, but I did know Bonnie. It was nice to see her again after all these years. Georgia Beth traveled up from Cedar City to be apart of it as well. I don't have a picture of her for my blog, but there is one on my facebook of both of us. It was nice to get out and visit with an old friend and meet a few new ones.
This is my Valentine's gift from my sweet husband. It was a giant balloon that played the song "Your Still the One", table setting for two (place mats and napkins), decorative hand towels for the kitchen, a candle, Valentine's magnet decorations for the refridgerator, and a Hillary Weeks cd. Thank you Dwayne-I love you!!!
So today I decided it was time to wean Caitlin of nursing. The first two pictures are of her at naptime. She had to cry herself to sleep. Poor thing looked like she was in jail or something. She fell asleep on her knees leaning against the crib bars. I couldn't resist taking a picture. The next two were of her the next morning eating breakfast. As you can tell it was a very long night of no sleep for her or me. I am glad that is all over with.
