A New Year Begins

Well, a new year is here and we started it off with a bang!  We had a great time with our friends and family over the holidays.  Summer got lots of new toys to play with and is enjoying her new bedroom too.  We finally have a living room pretty much toy free.  Well, most of the time anyway.

She is really growing up and her vocabulary is amazing.  She can put her shoes on by herself if they are slip on or have velcro straps.  So, she is always surprising me by walking into the room with her shoes on, sometimes without socks.  She even puts on my shoes and tries to walk around in them although they are way too big.  I still don't think I have a picture of that, but it is cute.  She hasn't mastered the sock putting on yet although she is trying.  She can put my socks on her feet, but hers are a little too tight.  She even tries to put on her pants by herself, but once she gets her legs in, she can't pull them up over her booty.  It is pretty amazing how much she can do though.  The other day I went into my bedroom and she had on a pair of my panties (incorrectly I might add).  But, she had tried to get them on.  She was in the process of trying to put on one of my tank tops too.  She never ceases to amaze me!

We went to the playground yesterday and she was going down the big slide all by herself.  Even when there was no one to catch her.  She also loves the swing now.  They have one of those chairs she can sit in and she really likes it.  She was giggling and laughing yesterday when Clint and I took turns pushing her.  She is such a doll and constant bundle of joy in our lives and I don't know what we would do without her sometimes. 

Two days after Christmas we found out that Clint's cancer is back.  They can only see one node that is cancerous, but they want to send him up to NCI for treatment to try to kill any other cells that we may not be able to see.  It is a pretty scary time for our family right now.  So much is unknown.  We would appreciate your thoughts and prayers right now.  If anyone knows any magic, please use a little on us.  We could really use a miracle right now.
