What started out as a site to update on our daughter's cancer has thankfully grown into a site to update on our beautiful family of four. Enjoy our journey...

all that is important...



We have had a great week. Sadly, I guess when good weeks come - we don't have a lot to report! Charli is walking around so much that she has blisters on the bottoms of her two big toes! We are working on healing them, but we aren't having a lot of luck!

Charli had her first non-cancerous boo-boo!! (something to be excited about, huh?!). She was walking too fast and lost her balance, biffing her chin on the lego table! She is bruised and red, but no cuts - and she doesn't seem to be bothered by it. She is such a tough BIG (little ) girl!

She really has grown up a lot in the past week. Her personality is so strong, in a good way! She is such a good communicator also - when she is hungry and tired, etc. She is also turning into quite the talking. I am not sure where she gets the talking gene, we are looking into that one!
She really is turning into such a big girl, and we couldn't be happier! She makes even the bad days great, and the sad times happy and exciting! Life with her couldn't be any better!!!

PS. Amanda found my first gray hair this weekend. Who do you suppose gave it to me, Charli or Chad?!!!!!!

I want your camera! I love the new pictures! I can't believe Charli got blisters from all that walking. I'm still waiting for Ky to walk. I feel it won't be too much longer. Have a great week!

Love the picture of Charli and her dad! I did have to laugh, however, "You wonder where she got her talking gene!" If you really can't figure it out, I know a lot of us who could help you. We haven't forgotten what an absolutely adorable, talkative little girl you were! AJ

I love the picture of the pink truck. I think that Chad should paint it hot pink for Charli. She is getting so big. It was great holding her last week. She is quite the walker.
