Life as a family of Seven

Growing Little Ones

Our little ones are growing!  Everyone is learning new things and saying new words everyday.  Our family got a new puppy.  He is a Rhodesian Ridgeback named Blu.

Here is a photo of all 5 while we were at the zoo.
Liam is officially a walker!  He is walking all the time and doing so well.  We are so impressed with his progress.  He has a wonderful physical therapist.  He is also talking a lot too.  Brielle is having so much fun and is such an acrobat.  She loves to do somersaults and flips.  River is our quiet one and so busy.  She is quite the worker.  She sees her Momma running around all day playing, cleaning, cooking, playing, reading to littles, doing laundry and having fun.  She imitates me and runs around doing the same.  She bends down and looks at  Brielle and Liam and in her own words checks on them.

Our little ones are almost 18 months

Here are some pictures of the little ones.  The babies are almost one and a half, Kai is 7 and Kian is 4.  Time is going by so quickly.  These babies are growing fast too.  Brielle and River and running, climbing and jumping everywhere they go. You name the thing to climb and they are doing it.  Liam is working on walking, his therapist brought over a walker.  He does not enjoy the walker and will only do it when Kai helps.  He will go back to the neurologist for an EMG and another myelination test.  He is doing well, he crawls everywhere and is holding on to things to stand.  He loves to climb on the couch and indoor climber.  He walks when we help and hold his hands.  We are letting him take his time.  He loves to sit on the floor with books and toys, he is very focused and mastering his fine motor skills. 

Here are some pictures of everyone.
