We had a fabulous time at John's 3rd birthday party.....the weather was perfect , the pizza and cupcakes were delicious, and the company was the BEST!!!!!!
Who isn't happy after a belly full of pizza?
I think he's sad because he ate all of his pizza!!!!
John's 3rd birthday cake! Thanks Grams!
Happy Birthday to you, Happy birthday to you.....
Sarah and Vienna!
All the kids LOVED their party favors.....John used his glow in the dark necklace as a drumstick...

He LOVES his books....as you can see, he's hugging them in the last picture!
Grace and Ruby, thank you so much! We miss you and wish you were here.

Waiting for John's horse, Poco
Getting ready to hop aboard
Straightening his helmet
And they're off
Enjoying his ride on a warm November day....will it cool down already?
As you can see, Hippotherapy was a success.....John LOVED it!
It was completely safe (PT on one side, spotter on the other, and a walker in front) and Mommy wasn't worried one bit. The PT and the spotter have a hold of him the entire time (they are holding on to straps that are hooked on that belt he is wearing.)
They do a variety of activities while on the horse to work different muscles and work on trunk control. His favorite by far was shooting hoops into the basket. I wasn't allowed to be with him but from where I was sitting on the patio I could see him sign, "more, more" and then clap for himself every time he made a basket.
He was exhausted after his ride and slept the entire 40 minute ride home!!!!!! I guess we need to buy him a horse if we want him to take naps again. Grandpa, I believe you were supposed to buy Craig one when he turned 10......since that never happened, why don't you buy your favorite grandson one?
We can't wait for Monday (we switched days next week because his birthday party is on Friday and I didn't want him to be worn out) for his next ride.

I was lying on the floor in his room (trying to get him to sleep) and all of a sudden he pulled himself up and went head first out of the crib and onto the floor.
I panicked (I don't know how anyone can stay calm when your baby is hurt)....thinking the worst, of course. But after he calmed down and caught his breath (and after I called Daddy and then Grandpa) I looked him over and he was fine. Grandpa suggested I keep him up for an hour though....just to watch him and make sure everything was OK!
So, that was my excitement for the night! I am now off to search the internet for Toddler beds. Operation Big Boy Bed....here we come!
