OT Evaluation

Therapy eval's are bittersweet. It's wonderful to see the progress Logen has made in a years time. It's also very hard to see how behind he really is, especially when I see the age equivalencies.

Here is a run-down of Logen's OT eval. He was evaluated using the Peabody Developmental Motor Scales 2 (PDMS2), Beckmann Oral Motor Eval Protocol, & the Motor Free Visual Perception Test (MVPT-3).

The Peabody's "Scores":
Grasping: 1 %tile, age equiv~ 14 months
Visual Motor Integration: 2 %tile, age equiv~ 20 months
This makes me so sad. He was 46 months at the time. I just don't understand it. Why Logen? (I know all of the other SN Mommies wonder the same exact thing with their babies)I cannot even think about this, on to the "good" part.

The MVPT-3:
(Copied directly from the eval) It's an individually administered test designed to assess overall visual perceptual ability in individuals ages 4 years, 0 months through 95 years and above. Individuals are presented with a series of test plates and asked to identify the correct answer from among 4 alternatives for each item. No motor involvement is required in providing responses. Perceptual tasks include spatial relationships, visual discrimination, figure-ground, visual closure, and visual memory. Performance in these areas provides a single score that represents the indiviual's general visual perceptual ability.

*** Although the MVPT-3 was standardized, on children ages 4 years and older, Logen was able to participate in the test and his scores reflect his skills if motor planning is eliminated. He was able to consistantly point to the answers, indicating a perferredanswer by either pointing to it repeatedly or rubbing it several times. The following scores represent how Logen functioned if compared to his peers who are 48 months old.

Raw Score: 21
Standard Score: 100
Percentile Rank: 50 %
Age Equivalent: 4 years, 2 months

I m TICKLED to death over this! Logen ranked 4 months ahead! And, technically speaking- he wasn't even old enough to take the test!!!!!

This Years Goals:
1. Logen will demonstrate improved self care skills by performing a) LE dressing b) UE dressing w/ minimal assisance for 3 consecutive sessions (CS).
2. Logen will self feed with modified independance and minimal spillage for 3 CS.
3. Logen will manage a) 1/4" chopped b) 1/2" chopped c) non-modified textures with a rotary chew of the jaw and minimal spillage 10/10 trials for 3 CS.
4. Logen will string 5 small beads on a string independantly for 3 CS.
5. Logen will demonstrate control of a mouse to participate in developmental computer activities with 50% accuracy 3/3 CS.
6. Logen will a) build with wooden pieces b) copy on a chalkboard letter of the alphabet with good form, orientation, and spacing.
7. Logen will catch/throw a playground ball 5/5 trials for 3 CS.

Obvioulsy, I did not include everything- just the "high points". If you have any questions, or would like more info- feel free to shoot me an email or post a comment.

Logen's Going To School!

I've been struggling since May (since we left his other school due to major im-moral issues as well as other things) to find a good preschool program that would take Logen with his disABILITIES and the fact that he's not potty trained. You would not believe the list of places I called and went to visit.

The first place I took Logen to seemed happy to take him. However, I got a weird vibe. The 2nd time we went, a child cut his finger with scissors. The teacher was standing in the hall talking to another teacher. That was a sign for me to grab Logen and run!

Several places wouldn't even consider him b/c he's not potty trained. Even though the reason is b/c of CP. Didn't matter. I broke down crying several times. I am sure several people in my community think I am a complete nut job! I asked one lady at a church program how she could call herself a Christian and judge my son on what he's not physically able to do. Ya, she probably really thinks I need some help! I can now laugh at that. One center told me they weren't "equipped to deal with a child like mine". Ha..... talk about making a mom feel good......

The 2nd center that would happlily take Logen didn't work out either. (maybe I am just overly protective?) We had a meeting with the director (who was a CNA prior to opening the preschool) and his teacher. His teacher had worked with special needs children in the past and that was her "forte". She was very happy to have the chance to work with Logen- or so she said. For the last 2.5 weeks I have called and not gotten an answer. I also left voice messages, non have been returned. I went by there before we left last week. They had a list of excuses. That kinda raised a red flag. It really bothered me. So, I decided to keep looking and maybe consider them again if all else failed.

In July I put Logen on the waiting list for a really great pre-k readiness program. His SLP has had her son on the list since he was born. His PT's foster daughter's also attend the daycare part of the program. This program is pretty well known and I have heard only wonderful things about it! I happened to call on Monday to ask where Logen fell on the list. The lady told me his name wasn't on the list. (Discouraged mom at this point). But, she said they had somebody "drop out" at the last minute. They had an opening!! I then told her about Logen. They take only children that are completely potty trained. I told her I was ok with them not changing him at all. Just take him to the potty when they take the other children (The school day only last 2.5 hours, so I'm not horrible for this request! lol). She said they could probably do that with a note from his ped saying that the reason he wasn't potty trained was b/c of the CP? She asked if we could come for an "interview". So, yesterday I loaded the boys up and went to the "interview". The teacher said she thought she could handle Logen as his needs weren't to hard. It will be on a trial basis. He gets one month to prove himself (as I say). She wants to make sure it's a good fit for him. This is where we need some MAJOR PRAYERS.

Today was orientation. It was neat. I learned that he will be taking 3 field trips during the school year. To the public library, the fire station, and the University of Arkansas' barn to see the animals. The program is Tues/Thurs for 2.5 hours. It runs from Sept to May. Just like "real" school. Logen threw the biggest fit when we left yesterday. Today, as soon as we turned on the road to the church he was very excited. Today he threw a fit when leaving. This makes me very happy- it means he likes it! He didn't even mind when I left the room! The teacher seems eager to learn the few signs he knows and said she would even try and teach the class the signs. Logen will start school next Tuesday. Please keep him in your prayers. Pray that he adjusts, that he shares (this is a huge huge battle in our home), that he is not to much to deal with for the program, and that the other children and his teacher love him. I want him to beable to stay in the program. He needs this. He needs to interact with the other children, he needs more structure in his day. And, for him- watching and following along witht he other children has always been so motivational.

Prayers Please! Thanks :)

Love & Hugs!

Free Health Info

I recieved this in an email from my Momma! I thought it was funny, so I wanted to share with you all :)

To all of you I really want to live a long time...

When I read this I immediately thought of some of my favorite people
And their health.

In a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists have
Demonstrated that if we drink 1 liter of water each day, at the end of
The year we would have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia
Coli,(E. Coli) bacteria found in feces.
In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of Poop.

However, we do NOT run that risk when drinking beer, (or rum, whiskey,
Wine or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification
Process of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting.

Remember: Water = Poop, Beer = Health.

Therefore, it's better to drink beer and talk stupid, than to drink
Water and be full of crap.

There is no need to thank me for this valuable information: I'm doing
It as a public service.

BIG Stuff

Check out my boy! Notice the flip flops on his precious feet! He put them on ALL BY HIMSELF! And, walked across the kitchen! The flip flops are his daddy's, so they are like a million sizes to big. I was super duper impressed that he was able to walk with "boats" on his feet! Yay Logen!!!

The Burnt SUV

Here's the pic, as promised in the "driving" post!

AAC Eval Results

This is the only pic I managed to snap and it's blurry!!!

The eval went rather well. Logen picked up on the devices pretty fast! They took him in the PT therapy room & programmed in "slide", "ball pit", "swing", & "bubbles". Once Logen figured out that he had to touch "go" & where he wanted to go, he was "talking" up a storm! Go slide, go slide, go slide! It was very neat & I was pleased as pie! It really made me feel like all those comments of "he's so smart" were "real".

The device Logen will be getting is called the Vantage Plus. The device uses a unique kind of language- that was pretty confusing to me!! Guess we will all be learning it together!! It uses the unity language.

Here is a link about the device and it's unique language. I wanted to copy & paste some key info, but it wasn't letting me do it my way! It is in the forn of a power point & it's a pretty neat presentation.
More info about the device.

Now- for the crappy part! They said it could take until February to actually get the device. The SLP & OT will type up the eval and their recommendations. Then it will be sent to me to get a Rx and other documents from our therapists and ped. Then, I will submit to insurance. I have to wait for then to either deny or approve. Then, if it's denied it will be sent to medicaid. They have 60 days to decide. Nice, eh?!?! Once they decide it will be submitted to the company and then to us! Rediculous! I am hoping we get it soon b/c it was really nice for Logen to beable to "talk". On the other hand, I cannot accept that my child will be talking by computer. It's not fair. I feel like other children would be much more accepting of him using sign language. But, he cannot possibly sign alot right now b/c of his motor limitations. He does try really really hard, but his hands just don't cooperate with him. I was happy during the eval & when we left I just wanted to break down & cry. I WANT Logen to beable to really speak. This completely sucks.......

Ok, so obviously- I am not driving! Adam is!! LOL We have been up since 8 (Parker the alarm clock woke us up!) I ran Logen to therapy this morning and went home to finish packing. We finally got in the van around noon. It's not 3:23 and we are um, about 45 minutes from home. We had a few errands to do!! We should arrive arounf 7ish. Depending on the stops. We are traveling on "children time" :)

Logen has no clue it's his birthday :( Poor guy... his mom and dad just shove him in the car!! Hey, atleast we did turn a movie on :) He's watching "The Wild" as I type!!

Perhaps I can update driving home if the 'net doesn't work at Mama June's.

Oh, guess what I saw??? Maybe I am a complete dork- but I even pulled out the camera! It was a burnt SUV (We think it was a Ford Escape). The tow truck pulled up next to us at a stop light and I was in awe! I had to take a pic. I will upload it later. Maybe we will have a poll on the vehicle type! haha. The driver of the truck as well as Adam gave me funky looks for taking pics of it. Hmm.... maybe I AM a dork!

4 years ago....

We found out we were expecting a baby on New Years Eve 2002. My pregnancy was pretty normal- or so we thought. I bled alot. More than "normal". Actually, bleeding is not normal at all when your pregnant. Wish I would have known that! My OB was an idiot. I wish we would have known then. I had several UTI's- also un-normal.

On August 20th 4 years ago I found out I was 4cm dialated. (I was 36 wks.) My OB sent me home and told me to get ready b/c we'd have a baby by Sunday (8/20 was on a Wednesay in 2003). So, silly me went out shopping to make sure we had the final baby things. My Mom & Paige came over to help me finish getting Logen's room done & the house clean. When Adam got home from work, we packed our bags. I sat up all night in tears. I was not prepared for motherhood. I talked (ok, she talked I cried) to my mom for a few hours on the phone. She had to go to bed b/c she had to get up and work in the morning. So, I called my big sis. She listened to me cry for a while. She had a few encouraging words to, I'm sure! haha I never settled down that night. I knew I was going to be somebody's mom very soon and it was totally overwhelming.

I had an appt Thursday (8/21) morning to check my cervix. I went in and was at 5cm. My OB looked at me and said, "Hop on over to the hospital, you're going to have a baby". So, Adam & I hopped on over to the hospital. By the time we got there and checked in (it was about 1pm) I was at a 6. Mind you, the hospital was just across the street. (We did make a pit stop at my mom's work to tell her she'd better get to the hospital too! Her work was also across the street)I remember sitting in the parking lot calling my Dad and telling him Logen was going to arrive in the next several hours.

I was in a great mood- I wasn't having contractions at all. I was on my phone, literally calling everybody in my address book to say- "I'm in labor!" Most were shocked I called while in labor!

I got an IV of pitcin to jump start contractions. I was having baby ones, nothing painful. They kept upping the pitocin though. I eventually felt them and decided I wanted big drugs! So, I got an epidural. All was good again. The Dr came back in and told me it was time to push- I was 10cm. I remember saying "Just give me 30 more minutes, I really need a nap before I become a mom!" No go on that one. Logen was ready to join the world.

Logen was born at 5:57pm. He weighed in at 6.2lbs and was 19.5 inches. He tinkled on the OB during his grand entry. He was also blue- the first words out of Adam & my mouth were "Is he ok?!" I didn't realize how blue he really was until the birth of Parker. He was pink!! I actually thought I had a wonderful labor until I watched the video a few times. Logen's HR was around 100 or lower my entire labor. And, we kept losing the heart beat.

Logen has been an absolute joy. He was and is one of the BEST gifts from God. His life is truely a cause for celebration. He's over come so much!! His smile melts hearts. (That's probably why he gets away with a LOT!)

His life has not been an easy one. How do you sum up your child's life? I cannot tell you the hardships we have all faced in the last four years. The emotional struggles, the worrying, the anxiety, the nervousness. I can go on. I want to break down and cry everytime I see him struggle. It's not right for children to struggle like he does. I know there are children much worse than Logen. I know we are very, very lucky to have a child with a mild physical form of CP. Speech is severe. I remember being told my child may not walk or run. And, by God's grace- he does! Speech worries me, more than you know. I have to remember to have faith in our Lord. Sometimes, it's so very hard to do so.

Enough of the sad stuff.... it's my baby boy's birthday!!!!! Let's be HAPPY & rejoice in this beautiful life!


Mommy & Daddy love you with all of our heart. You are the light of our lives. We are so proud of you. Everything you do is truely remarkable. We praise the Lord for every "inch stone"; every "mile stone" you hit.

I never knew how much seeing you walk for the first time would mean to me. I watch you take a step and I thank God. I thank God with every step. You are doing wonderful. You are one amazing little boy. You are my sunshine, my hope, my joy, my life. You are an awesome gift from God. A very special gift from God. And, I LOVE you more than you can imagine. Being your Mommy has been one of the greatest gifts in my life. Thank you for giving me that opportunity.

I love you Logen. To the moon and stars and ALL the way back......



My Perfect Child

As my children were born, I wanted them to be perfect.

When they were babies, wanted them to smile and be content playing with their toys.

I wanted them to be happy and to laugh continually instead of crying and being demanding, wanted them to see the beautiful side of life.

As they grew older, I wanted them to be giving instead of selfish.

I wanted them to skip the terrible twos.

I wanted them to stay innocent forever.

As they became teen-agers, I wanted them to be obedient and not rebellious, mannerly and not mouthy.

I wanted them to be full of love, gentle and kind-hearted.

"Oh, God, give me a child like this" was often my prayer.

One day he did.

Some call him handicapped... I call him Perfect!!

Heading Out!

AGAIN! We are leaving town tomorrow. We will be home Sunday- sometime. I will have limited to no internet access, so no blog updates! I will update when we return. Pray for good info and info at the AAC eval Wednesday. I'll post pics when we return.


Thursday, August 16, 2007


HOLY SMOKES! Tuesday night around 10pm, Parker pulled up. I was sitting on the couch and apparently wasn't paying enough attention to him. Next thing I knew he was chewing on my toes! I'm so afraid he's going to pull up to something and fall- so this makes me very nervous! He's too tiny for this!!! Its so funny to see somebody as short as him standing!!! He's been a lil monster the last few days! He's become such a little dare devil!!


Parker joined in on Logen's "potato head playing" & was chewing on the Santa beard, so I thought it would be funny to stick it on him! He (& Logen) agreed!!

Parker Out.....

Strawberry Bella-Bean

Last week, we had a play date with Bella & her Momma (Danielle)! For some reason, the only pic I managed is snap was one of Bella in a strawberry hat. I stuck it on her in Gymboree. How cute :)

Wednesday, August 15, 2007


Reason for title: He's chewing a bumble-bee

It's Scheduled!!!

FINALLY!!!! Logen's AAC (communication device) eval has been scheduled! We are heading to Little Rock next week (Tuesday the 21st). His appt is at 9am on Wednesday.

Poor Logen will be stuck in his car seat for 3.5 hours on his 4th birthday!!!!

Wish us luck :)

Logen & Chance

We doggie-sat my Mom & Dave's German Shepard last weekend. Logen absolutely LOVES Chance! And, I think Chance is pretty fond of Logen to!

Communication Device

We are awaiting an aug comm eval through Easter Seals. We've been waiting since June. We are hoping to get in Aug 22. When we were in St Louis, the neuro suggested a few different kinds for Logen to "play" with. In order for our insurance and medicaid to cover the cost of a device, he has to try out atleast 3 different models to see which fits him best. The one she suggested is called a Tango. (www.blink-twice.com) It's small, and similiar to a PSP- so, I'm not sure that he can get his fingers apart and pointing in such a precise manor??!! Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Another one is the Dynavox. (www.dynavoxtech.com) Logen did AWESOME with this one. His therapy clinic had an inservice with the Dynavox rep, and Logen was invited! LOL. He figured out how to work the machine quickly. The cons are- the size. It's more suitable for a wheelchair. It's heavy! ABout 7lbs. And, its bigger than my lap top closed. It's very neat though. He was able to play games on it.

The Vantage Plus was another suggestion. (www.prentrom.com) I don't know anything about this one.

Here's the Mini Merc. (ww.assistivetech.com) It is 3.5lbs and much smaller (but not as small as the Tango). Looking on the internet, this one is pretty neat.

I'll update after our eval and let you know what we get. I'm still not 100% convinced I am ready to have a child with a communication device. I would love for Logen to beable to sign. Kids don't look at kids that sign as oddly as kids that have to talk with the aid of computers. It just sucks! Guess this is just another one of those tough things I don't want to have to accept. I pray everyday that Logen will talk. But, he will be 4 in a few weeks and I know our time is running out for things like that. The guy with CP that works for my mom didn't speak til he was 7, so that does give me a little hope to cling to.

Logen's Getting A POLLY-WOG!

Don't you love the name?? I think I could say it over & over... LOL Logen had an appt at the Orthotic Clinic yesterday afternoon. He's doing much better! He started out with AFO's that hit right above the ankle. From there we went to the jumpstarts, which hit a little lower than that and were pre-fab. Now, we are at a polly wog, which is similiar to a shoe insert. Here is the pic from Cascsade's website and then info they provide. I will post pics of Logen wearing his new "spiffy" POLLY WOGS when we get them!!!

The PollyWog is our newest off-the-shelf, submalleolar orthotic.
The PollyWog's unique trimlines offer a solution to patients who require more control than is offered by a shoe insert but would be over-braced with a supramalleolar DAFO.
The flexible toe shelf, heel cup and full inner liner provide excellent comfort while enhancing full contact and good hind foot control through all phases of the gait. Plantar surface contours include the metatarsal, peroneal and longitudinal arches, and the DAFO signature toe elevation.

Belly Laughs

Passed Out!

Logen crawled up in his booster seat while I was cooking dinner and passed out! He slept until dinner was done! (Yes, his shirt is covered with drool!! And, he is wearing his PJ's- he wore them to therapy, he is very head strong and insisted)

Play Time

A Sign We Have To Many Toys!!

One of our projects last weekend, was to organize Logen's room a little better. Logen decided he was going to go in and empty a majority of the containers in the floor. Adam & I eventually got them all sorted- heres the final product. We put a shelf in the garage for toys- these go out there and he gets to pick 1 or 2 boxes to come in at a time. Not to worry, he's still got a TON of toys in the house. These containers hold things like potato head parts, wooden blocks, playdough, various sets of mega blocks, etc.

I've Been Tagged!!!

I was tagged by my friend Andrea H. to give 8 random facts/habits about myself.

The Rules:
1. I have to post these rules before I give you the facts.

2. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.

3. People who are tagged need to write their own blog (about their eight things) and post these rules. (**if you’re a non-blogger, you can email them!)

4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.

5. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

(Andrea - we are very much alike!)

Fact # 1: During my senior year, I took yearbook just so I could skip classes I didn't want to go to. I had the infamous "press pass" that allowed me to get out of school when I please. Eventually, I got caught for leaving school to much. Good thing I signed every stinkin' piece of paper I ever had for my mom. B/c I began writing my own "get out of school" notes. (I was at a new school my Sr year & graduated in Dec rather than May) I would leave school to go hang out with Adam or just take a nap. (Oh man..... my Momma doesn't know this yet-- man, am I going to be in trouble when she reads this one!!)

Fact # 2: I struggled with an eating disorder from the time I hit 7th grade until I found out I was pregnant with Logen. I still have "bad" days when I think I'm horridly obese, but don't act on it- I promise! I wish I could get the "fat" thoughts out of my head. People that haven't been through this, will not understand- so don't even try. Some day, I would like to talk to teens who are battling the same thoughts. I want to see some good come out of all of my struggles. My little Logen was more than just a blessing, I think God sent him to save my life.

Fact # 3: I was a "partier" my Jr & Sr year. But, I wasn't one of those "nasty" people (my lil sis's might read the blog, so I will not go into detail on "nasty" so I hope you know what I mean) and I never ever ever drove under the influence. I kept my GPA up (I was a 4.0 student) & had a pretty good head on my shoulders. Oh, and I NEVER did any illegal things- except the thing you aren't allowed to buy until age 21.

Fact # 4: I HATE underwear. (Is this safe to mention on-line) I used to get in SOOO mcuh trouble when I was "growing up" for not wearing them. I remember in Kindergarten, I would go to school in panties and take them off when I got there. I used to drive my Momma & Liz (my step-mommmy) NUTS with this!!!!

Habit Time~

Habit # 1: I bite my nails, ALOT! Like, down to the quick alot. When I'm nervous, bored, etc- I bite 'em. (Hey Andrea-- I pick my nose too! Ok, and dig in my ear....) Honestly, you cannot tell me you don't pick your nose..... Even if you are just "scratching" up there.

Habit # 2: I am a little psycho with this. Washing my hands in public restrooms. I will NOT touch anything in them. GROSS! I open the door with my elbow. I use a paper towel to touch ALL surfaces and when I leave, most times I will use hand sanitizer. I walk into my home after being "out" and have to wash my hands for fear of some funk on them. It's gotten worse since Parker was born prematurely and we've kept our gaurd up for his sake.

Habit # 3:Laundry- Oh, Lord help me with the laundry. I do, roughly, about 3 loads per day. I wash and toss in the dryer, no biggie. But, I really dislike putting the laundry away. We have this lovely big comfy chair in the living room that is a magnet for clothes straight from the dryer. If you ever just "pop" into my house, you'll likely find this chair full of clean clothes. So, DONT pop into my house b/c I would like time to throw them on my bed or put them away. I'm embarressed when people some see my "bad habit" of clean laundry.

Habit # 4: I have piles. The "stacks" of mail are the worst. The file pile, the shred pile, the must do something with today pile, the gotta pay this pile, the need to do something with, but not sure what pile, & the I'll get to later pile. I'm driving myself nuts with piles!!! My kitchen table looks like the mail room during the day. Come time to eat, I push it all to the side or lay it on the counter for me to sort out the piles once again.

Ok, now for who I am tagging!!! (Now, I have to remember to tell them I tagged them!)
1) Andrea M.
2) Chrystie
3) Danielle
4) Ellen
5) Jennifer
6) Melissa (a non-blogger, shame shame)

Friday, August 3, 2007


Most of the time, we are in our little "Logen world". Logen hits milestones and does things on "Logen time". It isn't until we step out into the "real world" that I realize how much my heart aches for him. Last night, my mom & I were walking down the side walk. Logen was riding his tricycle (he cannot use the pedals, just pushes with his feet) in front of us. There were 4 kids outside playing- Logen is such a people watcher- he stopped to "gawk" at them. 3 were playing basketball and one was riding his bike in circles around us. The 'bike boy' was just a little older than Logen. I looked at the 2 on their bikes and wanted to cry right then & there. The little boy was talking to Logen and all Logen could do was babble back. It hurts... Why does it have to hurt so bad? Why would God put children through this? Does Logen realize how different he really is? The little boy said, Logen, your mom is calling you. (We couldn't get LOgen to come back towards the house with us!) I kept waiting for the boy to ask why Logen didn't talk to him or why Logen was drooling, etc. I am not prepared to answer those types of questions from children. Adults, ok- but not his peers.

Sometimes, I just want to stay inside & avoid the real world forever. I want Logen to be ok. To ride bikes & play ball.

Life really isn't fair. Especially for the children who are "different".

9 Month Check-up

Parker turned 9 months yesterday! Where does the time go?? It seems like just yesterday Adam & I were traveling back and forth to the NICU to hold our precious miracle. Today was the lil guy's check up. Here are his stats:

Weight: 17.8 lbs
Height: 27 1/2 inches
Head Circum: - %(yes, negative! LOL), but following the line on the growth chart nicely

Dr. F said that Parker looks great! Couldn't find a single thing wrong with him! Yay :)

Parker's Army Crawl

Crawling Naked!

Getting Parker dressed after his bath gets more & more difficult each day! Diaper changes are rough too! He's so wiggly and very very mobile! Here's a few shots I captured while attempting to get him dressed after his bath!

Attack of "The Park-ster"

Poor Logen. He can't go anywhere or do anything w/o his little brother following or climbing on him! Logen doesn't get that he can't climb back on Parker- or he gets it & just doesn't care!! I goofed on the last pic & cut most of the boys out of it. By the time the camera was ready for shot # 2, Parker had been pushed off!!

Shower With Daddy

Both boys (or should I say all 3 of my boys? lol) love showers! These pics were to sweet not to share!

Pulling Up

On July 26, Parker decided to pull up in his big bubba's chair!! He did pull up on to his feet first, but was a little wobbly- so got back on his knees rather quickly!! Check out the lovely hair-do Parker has!!
