Fun days

Hi everybody! I know it has been awhile, but things have been both busy and fantastic around here. Ty's school is wonderful and he is still loving it, though Rustin misses him terribly. Hudson, though, is making great progress. His minor surgery was just that, "minor", as he was in and out in about 1/2 an hour. The whole process took all day, but the procedure was no big deal. He is now in the 50th percentile for his weight and 25th percentile for his height for his age and he is making tremendous progress of catching up in these areas. Also, he is making great progress in his leg, pelvis, and back strength as was evidenced today when he began to stand on his own up against our couch. Oh, how we will celebrate when he can walk freely! This is a really big step for him, though, and we are extremely excited. We've posted a few videos for you to enjoy. Thank you for continuing to pray for our family.

with love,
Donny and Kristi

Wow - that's awesome!! I'm sure he's loving the freedom he is gaining with his increased movement! Thanks for posting's torture not seeing him (and all of you), but this lets us connect at least a little. Man, that kid is cute :)

Give everyone hugs and kisses for me.
Love, Em

Well.......between this one and that we have viewed this darling video a FEW times:-) It brought such a smile to ALL our faces. We are praising the Lord and continuing to pray for all needs. Again..thanks so much for taking time to post...we realize how busy life is! We have no doubt that the Lord will use this in OUR grandchildrens lives as we talk and pray about YOUR family! God is so good and greatly to be praised! Blessings....much love...The Carters-)
