answers to goddess questions
1. Aunt Judi
Please tell me what Pork Loin is doing these days.
Pulling up and walking around furniture?
Combat crawling?
Standing alone?
Or just plain goofing off?
I'm not around to see the action, if there is any.
I love him just the same.
You tell him that.
Kisses to all. Aunt Judi.
all of the above!!!!
he is crawling on his hands and knees more often than combat crawling now.
he pulls himself up onto everything and anything, including and most often ME!
he will hold onto my leg and walk around with me.
he pulls himself up in his crib, jumps up and down like a monkey, making cute little high pitched sounds.
he pushes his walker around, including anything that has wheels...well, and anything without wheels that will scoot as well.
he dances with his fingers/hands, and when he's standing up and music is on he will lift his arms up and bounce to dance.
every time we enter or leave a room he raises his hand up to say hello and goodbye.
i think i heard him say "duice" for "juice" yesterday. jess was with me and she confirmed it;-)
he is more clingy than ever!!!
he wants me to hold him a lot of the time.
i usually give in and reward myself with a kiss.
he gives hugs, so cute.
at his birthday we carried him around to each guest and he gave a hug to each person.

Is he cruising along furniture or letting go of furniture when standing?
This will help me guess!
Those are my questions 4 u!
He is cruising EVERYWHERE along furniture, walls, toys, etc.
He is letting go of his walker occasionally, but no other furniture when standing.
Come to think of it, he hasn't done that in a few weeks.
He just pushes his walker in what we like to call "baby sprint" mode, b/c the kid goes sooooo fast with it!

3. Jessie B.
Get my drift???
i most DEFINATELY do;-)

4. Fiauna
But adding chocolate to anything makes it more palatable, don't you think?
yes ma'am!!!!!!
really, we should do research on this.
maybe it could be a tax write off?
you've got questions, i've got answers!!!
"hit me with your best shot! fire awaaaaaaay!!!!"
ooo, i think i need to play guitar hero now...;-)

I LOVE Zappos! Cute boots.

Okay, ready for a long comment? I could write pages on this, but I'll try to keep it short.

I feel that every parent needs to follow their gut when dealing with the needs of their children. While I have only read of one case of a child suffering adverse affects from vaccines that caused her mental retardation, among other things, I feel vaccines should be researched by parents before given to their children. I vaccinated my children blindly. The doctor said, "Do it," and I did. If I had researched the vaccines my daughter was given, I would now be more confident that they hadn't been the cause of my daughter's condition. In my gut, I don't think vaccines caused my daughter's condition. And I don't think there is anything I can do to "cure" her. Vaccines are a good thing. I personally don't think that vaccines cause autism. There might be a link between vaccines and autism, but from the research I've read, the child would already have the predisposition for autism, the vaccine just "turns it on". And if not for the vaccines, it would have been something else down the line.

But here is what I really think. I think that these children with autism and other various neurological conditions are choice spirits of Heavenly Father. I think they chose to come to earth like this. I feel that my home is a better place because we have a choice spirit living here. That doesn't mean that I don't cry myself to sleep at night, wondering what I did wrong. It just means that when the sunrises, I am grateful for the experience of raising my sweet angel.

Thanks for letting me post this comment here. Maybe I'll write a blog post about it.
