Kason's Walking!!!

Last Friday Kason took a couple steps towards his Grandpa Southwick but I was at work and didn't get to see. So the next day we were cleaning Weston's grandparents house and Kason took about 6 steps all by his self! I was so excited and of course we didn't have the video camera with us. So I spent all weekend trying to get a video of him walking and needless to say I never got a very good one. Last Sunday he took about eight steps to my dad. He is getting so good! Although he's not venturing off yet he just takes steps between two people. But hey, it's progress! So I know these videos don't do his walking any justice but this is what I have so far. I'm still trying to get a better video but this will have to do for now. (Oh and our 7th office visit in a month was on Monday and Kason got his cast off and his hives are almost cleared up! Yeah!!! Now if only his tooth would come in so he would be our happy little boy again!)

Joy School

This week it was our turn to have Joy School at our house again. This has been my third time and I'm finally feeling like I have gotten the hang of it. We talked about the letters B,C and F and the numbers 9 and 10. The kids were so cute when I was talking about the number ten. One little girl told me that the "1" was actually and "I" and one of the other girls was telling me about the number Zero. She said, do you know what zero means? And I just asked what and she told me it means nothing. Zero is nothing. She is just too smart. But for the unit we were talking about patriotism so they got to put stars on some flags. I think they all really enjoyed it. Here are some pictures of them decorating their flags.

We have seven girls in our group and they are all so cute and so much fun. I am so glad that we live in an awesome neighborhood with so many friends for Makenna to play with. She just loves it and is always asking who's house do they get to go to next for school. I'm glad she enjoys it so much. Now next year, she's off to a regular preschool.

And we're up to six

Office visits that is. Tonight we took Kason in for an allergic reaction to his ear infection antibiotic, amoxicillin. So now we have had six office visits in 4 weeks and his list of allergies just keeps growing. Amoxicillin (and penicillin), eggs and nuts. Funny thing is we were supposed to take him to the allergist today to have him tested but we had to reschedule because he was covered in hives and doped up on benedryl. Poor kid. I really hope he gets feeling better soon. This has been the longest month ever!!!

Poor kid. His whole face is covered in red sploches. It doesn't look that bad here but his face started to swell up so we finally took him in to the after hours clinic again.

His whole back and tummy and head are covered in these red hives. His legs and arms just have red spots.

Engagement Anniversary

Yesterday was our anniversary of when Weston and I got engaged. That was 6 years ago. I can't believe it has been that long. I still remember that day. It was great. Weston still wants to forget that day! Let's just say that all his planning and hard work didn't go as expected. But he asked and I said yes and the rest is history. So for Christmas I gave Weston 2 Jazz tickets for last nights game so we could have a fun date night. They played the Cavaliers and killed them, Ronnie Price had a good game, and it was just tons of fun. We apparently don't get out much and lets just say it was an interesting night with interesting people. I got ran over by a wheel chair, we saw some nice crack of the kid in front of us, we sat next to a crazy lady from Price (who was missing some of her teeth), and then some interesting guy tried to give me his Taco Bell coupon. So many funny people, it was all very entertaining.

This was the only picture we got of us at the game. We didn't bring our camera so this is from Weston's phone. Not a great picture but at least we can say we were there. Such a fun night. Thanks Wes for taking me! (I don't know that you had much of a say though!) Love you!

Kason's One Year Stats

Last week I took Kason in for his one year check up. Now counting a trip to an after hours clinic this week that brings our total office visits up to 5 in about 3 weeks. And those were all for him. Poor kid, I guess when it rains, it pours. We have a week and a half left for his cast, he got three shots last week and he started an antibiotic two days ago for an ear infection. I'm hoping the rest of the year doesn't continue on like this! Well here are his 12 month stats

Height: 29 inches - 25.73%

Weight: 22.66 lbs - 48.94%

Head: 18 inches - 31.18%

He's looking pretty good. A little on the short side but I guess he just takes after his dad!
