Greyson is now walking!!!!!

A few days ago he could take a few steps but now he is full on walking more then crawling.  He has started to learn to be able to stand back up with out holding onto anything.  According to daddy he will be running by the end of the week.  I would say that is probably pretty accurate.  If he is anything like his sister in a week I will be saying it will be a miracle when he learns to walk since he will be running everywhere.  I hate when he grows up and reaches another milestone but at the same time being able to walk will be so much better when we are out and about and he will be happier being faster and not getting left behind.  Which will make mommy much happier too. 

We had an excellent Thanksgiving actually we had three thanksgiving dinners over a 4 day period.  They were AWESOME as usually and I am so glad we were able to spend time with our family.  I am thankful that Greyson is still a part of our family and is going to the holiday gatherings with us again last year.  I remember last year thinking we needed to take him to as many places as we could since we just didn't know for sure if he would be here next year.  Now that surgery #1 seems like a lifetime ago it was a much more relaxed holiday. 

So a quick what I am thankful for:

My great and understanding friends and family.  I know we have been a little selfish here lately with everything that has been going on in our lives in the past year or so and am Thankful you have all been there and so understanding.

My Husband who works so hard for his family so that I can stay home with our kids.  It is so great to have someone I can totally relax around and laugh with and love for the rest of my life.

My ADORABLE daughter Addison.  I can't believe it has been almost 3 years since you came into our lives.  You make me laugh ALL THE TIME!!!  Even as I type this I am laughing at the things you say.

My SWEET/ROTTEN Greyson.  I am so thankful that you are as healthy as you are considering how unhealthy your heart is.  I am glad that you made it through your first surgery and I know you will come through your next surgery just as well.  I am so happy watching you grow and learn new things every day.

Over due update

This update is way over due.  I have been trying for weeks to upload Greyson's 1 year pictures because they are so cute, but blogger is really giving me trouble loading them.  I had them loaded and the whole post made and when I went to post it wouldn't let me.  It said it was saved but it doesn't show up in the drafts so apparently that was a lost cause. 

Greyson has been doing LOTS here lately but nothing big on the medical front really.  He does have a cold right now and we went to see daddy's pediatrician Dr. Meyer today just to confirm that is what it is and nothing more.  If it turns into something more we will have to go back and get more medication.  He isn't very happy about it and it gets way worse in the evening and I have been up with him a few times because of it. 

Greyson is WALKING now, not all the time and not everywhere but he knows how to do it...when he wants to.  Most of the the time he would rather crawl since he is much faster that way.  He will get to walking on his own time, just like he does everything else.  He has both of his bottom teeth all the way through and the top two are working their way in also, which I am sure doesn't help with his cold. 

I will continue to try and post the pictures but I am not holding my breath.  I will try to post an update after Thanksgiving and I am super excited about Black Friday hopefully we will get the few things we are going after.

Doesn't he look like such a big boy here?

Isn't that a rotten face.

Finally by loading them into photobucket and then loading them on here I was able to load them all.  Who knew I could have done that weeks ago.  Much easier to do it that way, especially since I can do that from my phone.  If you get my blog through email beware your email my blow up soon now that I have figured out how to post pictures better.
