Without Further Adieu

I hate that it has taken so long for me to post any sort of updates, but I wanted pictures and I was not able to load them until this morning. We have been gearing up for the holidays and I am really excited as usual.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and we came home to start on Christmas. We got everything except the outside decorated the weekend after Thanksgiving.

The first weekend of December was Bill's office brunch for the entire firm. Last year we decided to start a family tradition of going to the GA Aquarium the day of this party since we would already be down there. We continued this tradition and had a wonderful time. We even got to go the Titanic exhibit which was amazing! After the aquarium we went to the party and ate good food.

They always have Santa at the party and he is amazing but Meredith did not like Santa Claus. The picture below is terrible but at least she isn't crying! We even tried to go back later to see if she would be better, but she grabbed on to me tightly whenever Santa approached. maybe next year.

Last Tuesday Meredith received her braces for her legs. She is doing really well with them and had finally worked up to wearing them all day. She had physical therapy today and she took 4 steps with the therapist! I was crying while watching her on the internet viewer. This is major for her. I am not so concerned with the walking, I just want her to stand up unassisted.

She will get moved up to the next room at the Daycare after the first of the year. While she may still not be walking yet, I think this move will push her along. She will be with her little boyfriends as well. Here are some pictures of her braces.

I love her in her little green Christmas dress--so cute! Those braces are as cute as they can be too. Way to go, Meredith!
