Wow! It has been a month again and the time as flown by so quickly. I have so much to update it is hard to know where to begin. Let's start with Laney and then I will update on Logan. It is easier to remember if I think one at a

Laney: did not have her eye surgery but goes back November 24th for a recheck; went to the ear doctor for a follow up hearing test, which was inconclusive again and one of her tubes had come out and the other was almost out. The decision was made at that moment to insert a second set of tubes and do an ABR (a hearing test done while Laney was under anesthesia). She had this done on November 3rd and she did great and she passed her hearing test!!! WooHoo!!! She has started all of her therapies at home now. We just felt safer because of all the flu germs having her home for therapy and I am so glad we made that decision. We have the best therapist! She had amazing therapist when she went to rehab for therapy but the therapist we have now have clicked with Laney. She is sailing right along. Laney is taking many steps now on her own. I am sure she will probably be walking alone by Christmas or soon after. We got her a new set of SureSteps (her braces) and those are helping so much. In speech, she is learning more signs and catching on so quickly. She loves the praise she gets when she does her signing. In OT, she is really working hard on sorting and stacking objects. She will do great as long as I am not in her room with them. I like to go in at the end to see what she has been working on and she will not perform for me...stubborn girl.

Logan: golf lessons just ended this past Saturday and he had a blast and learned so much. He is also in Cub Scouts and will be receiving his Bobcat badge next Monday night. We are super excited. He won 2 games of simon says tonight and earned the honor to lead the Pledge next week at our Pack meeting. He just got his first report card last Wednesday and he was on the straight A honor roll, received an award for perfect attendence, and got a Kid with Character award. He is growing so much right now and it is amazing watching him transition into a young man.

Lastly, this past Friday afternoon, we had the honor of having our portraits taken by a professional photographer, for free as part of The Littlest Heroes Project. It was amazing! She was awesome and if the preview photos are any indication, I am not going to be able to choose between all the pictures taken. She is so talented and Laney was "in the photo mood" and took wonderful pictures. I will share the link to the proofs as soon as I get it. I can't wait to see them. If anyone is interested in applying for The Littlest Heroes Project, go to This project is available to families with children that have chronic illnesses and diseases. It is a wonderful opportunity and we are so grateful to have been a part of it.
