An Olympic Celebration

First of all, we have some exciting news: we got little Boston a walker this weekend. He has been showing signs of getting ready to walk by standing up more, moving his legs so much, and being more mobile. We figured it would also help him get to where he wants to go and be in on the action. Our friend said he has "FOMO (fear of missing out)." So true! We got him a Disney Baby Einstein Baby Neptune Ocean Explorer Walker because of the great reviews and he's loving it so far. At 27" tall, he is barely touching the ground, but he'll grow into it. In the meantime, he is enjoying the toys it comes with and being pushed around by Aunt Holly.

It's been several years since we formally commemorated the day of my accident, and after debating for several weeks, I decided it was time to do another one for the 5 year milestone (and threw everything together just this week. Unfortunately, I missed sending invitations some friends because of this and I truly apologize for that). It's been an amazing 5 years and I'm so thankful for it all. I couldn't have made it without so many key people in my life. They are the ones that make all the difference in my day - jokes, insights, encouragement, everything. I'm glad we could celebrate together. And of course, Boston was the star of the show :)

The winter Olympics had just begun, so we themed the party after the Olympics and projected the show in our living room. Watching the snowboarders go down the slopes and do their cool tricks in the air, gave me this urge to go up and mono ski so bad. The Olympics is a reminder to me of the amazing things the body can do and I'm so impressed by each person participating because I know they've earned their spot there. However, I'm team USA all the way! Going for the gold!

Back in the day, AJ and I would get hot chocolate after snowboarding, so we served hot chocolate and breakfast for dinner. Here's how it went.

Friends and families are blessing from God to help us through the tough times and celebrate with us through the amazing times. Thanks for being there.
