Christina's Birthday Party

Christina's birthday party went very well. Christina did amazing opening gifts, she has the grabbing and pulling wrapping paper all figured out. And I can't even begin to express how well she handled having that much company. It wasn't a huge party, but a whole lot more people than usual.

I made two cakes so we would have plenty and to be sure leftovers for Christina and I. Christina likes cake, both chocolate and white and chocolate and butter cream frosting. I haven't figured out which is her favorite.

Christina has been very talkative lately. And she loves talking on the phone. It still takes a little while for her to get into the groove of telling a story, but once she starts she keeps going. And singing, Christina loves to sing. I had a heck of a time the other day figuring out what Christina wanted to do. Finally, I figured it out and she wanted to sing and dance. Christina what a beautiful voice you have.

I am in the process of picking pictures for the web. There are so many to pick from. Maybe I should just put up a post of pictures. Thoughts? And any ideas of a user friendly way to view all the pictures of Christina are welcome.

I also want to thank Jacie for taking pictures on Saturday. It is appreciated. And thank you Pam for the plaque for Christina. I think I like it more than her.

Christina had her first speech therapy appointment for the summer this past Tuesday. I will post details on her blog when I get them.

Just got a call sharing how well Christina did in the gait trainer. Christina walked outside through the front door, around the building on the sidewalk, around two cars, and to the garage.

Mommy said she gets a stroller ride to rest her legs. Christina was huffing and puffing and broke a sweat.

More Sick

I am not sure if I have been burning the candle at both ends, but I managed to get sick again. The typical head ache, sore throat, stuffy nose, feel like crap. Christina and I made it through the weekend with some fun times though. Read about our adventures on her blog,

Not feeling much better, but I wanted to get the blogs updated and the pictures backed up. Below is a picture from Saturday. Christina and I went to the Triathlon to see James, Robyn, and Ben participate. It was good to see everyone and Christina gave hugs and kisses to James and Robyn. Christina even walked to each of them. She showed off so well a shoulder ride was in order. Not to mention it gave her a better view.

A thank you to all who volunteered and participated.

Best view at the event.

I wanted to share how proud of Christina I am. We have been working on walking in the gait trainer. Christina prefers walking on the deck over the sidewalk. The determined little firecracker goes from one end to the other by herself. And that is no small task, the deck spans more than the full width of the house. It is my true pleasure to give Christina her shoulder ride for doing so well.

To add to Christina's excellent job, she has worked up to going from one end to the other and back in one shot. AND, Christina has made the trek more than once in a day. I enjoy my job of cheering section.

Good Job Christina!!!

Local UCP site

Yesterday I was able to help the UCP office in Eau Claire for a change. I assisted with getting some of the more current news up on the site. It felt good to be able to help them with all they have done for Christina, Angela, and me.

Lots more going on, but don't want to go into details now.

Today I need to get the last of the laundry put away and a quick check on email before going to pick up Christina. I am so glad when she is here. Tossing the idea around of taking her to see the planes. The airshow is this weekend. Christina is a fan of the Blue Angels flying overhead.

Last year, Angela and I were worried that Christina would 'freak' out when they flew close to the house. In an attempt to prepare Christina, I took her outside where we could see the planes fly by and the noise was much louder. As it turned out, Christina loved it. So Angela took her outside again later when they started flying by again and I took pictures.

Here it comes........... zzzzzooooooooooommmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm :)
