I know it's been forever since I've been back to post. Let's see. Last I posted, we thought Noah had allergies. He didn't. He had reflux, but not the throwing up kind. He basically had severe heartburn. Poor baby. We put him on some meds and he did great. Then he started solid foods and hasn't needed it since. Now he's six months old and doing wonderfully. Currently working on pushing his first two teeth in. His therapy is going really well (for those that don't remember or don't know if you go back to May or June you can find the posts about it.) He only has to go every other month now. He has full range of motion and has for some time. We're really only working on putting weight on it. In October his therapist said she thought he would crawl in a few months. He rocks on his hands and knees, but can't support his weight on his left arm for long. Getting better everyday, though. He started sitting up before he was 4 months old. He pulled himself up to stand around 5 1/2 months and still does this occassionally. Boggles my mind.

Mady Grace is doing wonderfully. She is busy being a big sister. She loves to help *handsome* or *big boy*, those are what she calls Noah.

Sam and Savanna are busy with school. Both excell in their classes. Sam is the class clown, but his teacher loves it. He was being picked on during the morning recess with the older grades, but it seems to have stopped. During this time he was very agressive and acting out at home. He's back to my loveable, energetic boy. Savanna was excited to find she had all A's again on her progress report. She's such a good help at home, I don't know what I would do without her.

I'm so way excited that Cassandra and I have been contacted by our brother, Jared, whom we have met once when he was a baby. He is our biological father's son from his second marriage. I've always wondered about him and it's nice to get to know him. Hopefully we will be meeting sometime this summer.

I think we will be getting our internet back up by Feb. I hope!
