Our first snow of the season came so, so early. We got about 4 inches of snow, but I had no time off from school? Well, we started late today, but that's it.

We had a good Thanksgiving - we traveled to Aunt Erin's house and to Aunt Kim's house for two Thanksgiving dinners. One was on Thursday, and one on Friday. We had a really good time seeing everyone!

Otherwise, I've been sick, so not much has gone on. I am feeling a lot better, so that's definitely good news. No one wants to go in to the holidays not feeling well!

We had such a fun October, finishing up with my favorite Halloween (though not my favorite costume...) The Sunday before Halloween we went to a pumpkin-carving party and watched the Redskins game - outside! Very cool. I also had a party at school, and then we went to the Halloweenie Roast at the Powers' across the street. It was a really good time.

Below are some pictures from the last week of October for you to enjoy. In the meantime, I went to the eye doctor today and he gave me a great bill of ocular health! My eyes are healthy, slightly farsighted, and seem to be focusing better and more frequently, so Dr. Seidman was very happy.

More soon, I promise!

The Redskins let the other team score - Daddy and I are skeptical...
I do NOT like my costume!! Well, I guess it is okay. Will everyone be able to tell I am an Ewok?

Yoda (Drew) and I hang out at the Halloweenie Roast!

New School, New Year

We've had such a busy summer and fall! First, we went to Uncle Joe and Aunt Julie's wedding in Atlanta. It was so much fun - I got to see so many aunts, uncles, gr'aunts, gr'uncles and cousins! And, of course, lots of time with Granny Kate and Pop-pop. I also was a featured performer at the wedding, lending my finely practiced burping skills to the ceremony!

Then in August, Mommy traveled a lot, so it was Bachelor's Month with Daddy, Drew and me!

In September, I went back to school. I have a new school this year, which means a new teacher and new therapists, too. It's been so busy! I'm doing pretty well at school, too. In a few weeks, I have a very important Doctor's appointment - I have to go see Dr. McClintock. I've been almost a whole YEAR without any seizure behavior - YAY!!!! He'll give me a test (an EEG) and if it's clear, then I'm halfway to stopping taking medicine. The doctor said that if I go 24 months without seizure behavior and had clear EEGs, we can start taking me off my medicines. We're all very excited.

Anyway, I know Drew gave Mommy a hard time about how long it's been, so I'll give her a break. Here's some pictures from the end of the summer and the start of school...

Daddy graduated, and I left school!

Believe it or not, my Daddy graduated and now he's an MBA!! It was really fun to go to Chapel Hill for graduation. Almost everyone I'm related to was there - Nana and Poppy, Aunt Kim, Uncle Brian, my cousins, and that's just Daddy's side! Then there were Granny & Pop-pop, Aunt Erin, Aunt Shannon & Uncle Todd, and of course Mommy and Drew, too. We went to a Japanese Steakhouse for dinner one night - that was FUN!!

That'e Mommy, me and Aunt Shannon at graduation. I did really well during the ceremony, and Daddy went right past us as they processed in. It was pretty cool!

Then school ended a little over a week ago. Mommy took some pictures of me with my classmates, but they are still on the camera. She'll send them out later.

Here's me with my Aunt Kim (and some cousins - Jack & Mac!)

We just had Daddy's graduation party, too. I'll post on that soon!

long time...bad Mommy!

Sorry - it's been a terrible time for Mommy! She had to work all by herself for almost 6 weeks at work, and it was really hard on her. She was cranky at home a LOT. Now she has a new friend, Ms. Stephanie, who is there to help, so she's in a better mood. Just in time - Daddy is on a trip for a l-o-n-g time and it's just us for the next few days.

I've still been doing lots of good stuff at school, and I am going to keep getting my school services over the summer so I can keep going. I also saw my eye doctor and my brain doctor recently, and they were both very pleased with how I was looking (and also, how I was looking! Bah-dump-dum!)

Here's a recent photo of me working on my sitting. I'm still working hard at sitting by myself! Check out my awesome shoes, courtesy of Aunt Shannon & Uncle Todd!
Mommy had a dream this weekend where I was standing all by myself. I can't wait until we can post that photo when it's not a dream anymore. I am tired of sitting all the time...

Get me a throne!

Well, Aunt Megan got this out first, but I can forgive Mommy for being slow to post this. She's sad because her friend Miss Megan doesn't work with her anymore and she (Mommy) is working really hard now! Anyway, last weekend, I hit another big milestone. Mommy helped me get situated in a sitting position, and I leaned forward and propped myself up and sat on the floor, all by myself. For more than a minute! Everyone was very excited, and it was a good thing the camera was there. Notice how there are no people anywhere near me at all? That's because I can do it all by myself now. YAY ME!!

Home Birthday

I'm feeling better today, and we got our new photos finally (we got Vista and Daddy had to wrestle the computer into working with all our existing stuff). Here I am on my birthday!

As you can see, I'm still a big fan of the icing :)

So I finally gave up and caught the cold that has gone around the family. It's a bummer. I've been cranky, but who isn't when they are sick. I've had good days at school, regardless, up until today.

So I'm home resting, and hopefully I'll feel better soon! I have gone to see the doctor for my three year check up after my birthday and Dr. Fox says that I am looking fantastic! I would cheer but that takes too much energy, so I'll just say "cool".

Here's a picture of me at school last week reading one of the Valentines I got from my classmates...

I'm Three! I'm THREE! I'm so cool! Check me out at school with my classmates - I ate a cupcake!!!!!!!!

My classmate Sebby's birthday was also today. Here he is:

We had so much fun. And, more cupcakes tonight with Mommy and Daddy! Drew can't have one yet. That's okay - more for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Can you tell that there was something of a sugar high going??)

Today is my first official snow day from school. This is so cool - I get to stay home and play with Christy and Drew all day, instead of going to school and working so hard. And I prepared very well for it by sleeping for FOUR HOURS yesterday as a nap. Then I slept hard all night, too, just in case I needed extra energy today. So today I will play at home and work in the stander, etcetera. There isn't a lot of snow on the ground, so I expect that I'll have to go back to school tomorrow. Oh well, at least I got to have a little fun today!

Shout it from the rooftops!!!

I couldn't have better news to share! In December, I had surgery to straighten my eyes and they look SO GOOD now! Not only that, but my teachers at school seem to think that I am looking better at things all the time. I had some time off of school around the holidays, and boy did I have fun with Mommy, Daddy and Drew. And man, was it tiring getting back to the daily grind.

But here is the best, best news of all: I had an EEG test done in November, and it says that there was no seizure activity in my brain waves. This is the test that I had that told the doctors that I was having seizures, and now I don't seem to have ANY bad brainwaves any more. This is AWESOME!!!!!!!!! It could mean that I could stop taking so much medicine, which would be great for me.

Anyway, thanks to everyone for all their thoughts and prayers to get me to this point. You guys rock.
