Happy Birthday

I can't believe I am already 3 years old. Today has been pretty relaxing. I am all worn out from my big birthday party yesterday. I had a lot of fun and had all of my friends over. We all went swimming and ate a lot. I really enjoyed swimming and watching everybody jump off the diving board. My friend Keller even came. I think I scared him a little bit. Mom tried to take a picture of us together but he didn't want me to sit by him. I was a little wet from swimming so I don't blame him...sorry Keller :( I got to eat my ice cream cake and open up all of my presents. By this time I was worn out and hot. So I really wasn't into it by this time. By the time everybody left I was ready to hit the sack. I even slept in this morning until 9:00. What's a good birthday if you can't sleep in. Later on today, I get to go to another birthday party. I should be all rested up and ready to go by then.

I will post some of my birthday pictures later. But here is a little something that mom put together - just click on the picture.

Crazy Week

What a week so far. I am getting ready for the big day on Saturday. Well more like mom and dad are. They have been busy getting the house cleaned and the pool ready for my birthday party. I also had an eye doctors appointment today. My appointment went okay, I go back in a year. I also have been missing all of my friends at Ms Becky's. They went on vacation, so I have been going to Grandma Vickie's this week. I have been having a lot of fun there. Uncle Dale got a new dog that I enjoy playing with. It likes to steal my socks.
To add to all this excitement, dad got free Cardinal tickets for Thursday nights game and they have decided to take me along. I hope I enjoy it. Hopefully it doesn't get to loud. But if it does at least the tickets were free and we aren't out anything except a tank of gas.

Visitors and Hand Splints

So much has been going on since I last updated. Let's see where to start. First I got to meet someone new last week and he only lives like 2 blocks from me. His name is Keller and he also has hydrocephalus and is the same age as me. So we will be going to school together and everything. I really didn't have much to say when he was here, I was a little shy, but I am sure I will warm up to him after awhile. He sure was funny. I even invited him to my birthday party and to come swimming sometime. We will have a lot of fun together!
Another thing that happened last week, is that I finally got my new hand splints. I guess I wasn't to thrilled about them but I guess they will benefit me in the long run. They are much better than my old ones. They hold my thumb and index finger out. So they really stretch my hand out. When I have them on I call them my guns. It looks like I am shooting at someone, the way they have my hand positioned.
We had more company on Sunday, Ms Becky, Dylan and Taylor (my babysitter and 2 kids - who are my best friends) came over and went swimming. We had a blast!! I got to show Dylan & Taylor all of my cool toys.
This week has been kind of slow. Of course the regular therapies. I did really good today in PT. I only lifted my head once when I was on my belly, but I held it for a long time. I even turned it side to side, which is something I have never done before and is very hard. Other than that nothing to amazing has happened.

4th of July

I hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July. Mine was pretty relaxing. Grandma and grandpa came over and we barbequed for lunch and hung out. I wanted to go swimming but it was too cold. I even showed them how I sit up all by myself. Later on we went over to my cousins house and watched them and the neighbors set off fireworks. I wasn't for sure how I would handle it but I did great. I loved watching all the fireworks light up and I didn't even get scared when they popped. I jumped a few times but never got upset. I even got to participate with the sparklers. I wasn't too sure of them though. Mom let me hold one and swing it around, but I preferred to just sit back and watch. It was a lot of fun and can't wait until next year.

Guess what I can do all by myself? I can sit up all by myself with nobody even helping me. Except when my mom has to put her hands in front of mine so they don't slip, because I have to put my hands on the floor to balance myself, so I don't tip over. But I don't count that. I can't do it for very long, but I can do it. Yesterday in therapy, I sat up 3 different times with no help by anyone for about 10-15 seconds. Who knew I could do that. I even surprised myself. I can also sit up with somebody just holding me around the waist for several minutes. I did it for almost 5 minutes last night without losing head control. As my mom would saying AMAZING!!! I can tell mom and dad our so proud of me!
