Faster than a speeding bullet

Brandon and Ethan have both gotten much better riding their bikes. They always have a great time riding.

Archery master

Brandon had a lot of fun practicing his bow and arrow.

Nice form, and a pretty good shot as well.

Whole new kid

We are just amazed at the things that Ethan suddenly is doing now that he has the shunt. He is talking in longer more complex sentences, he can ride his big wheel all the way to the corner and back, as well as hike around the lake with Daddy. We are suddenly seeing him do things that he has never done before. One of the biggest differences a friend of mine pointed out just two days after his surgery. "You can see his eyes, they're huge!" Said when seeing Ethan from across the room. His eyes are much more open and alert.

You gotta love that smile! No matter what has been going on, surgeries, tests or doctors appointments, he's always so very happy.

Deep & Wide

Singing along to Deep & Wide.

Surgery time again

Ethan had surgery to put in a shunt to drain the fluid from around his brain last Wednesday. Back to the hospital we go.
Brandon and Daddy waiting. Does anyone know what Brandon is sitting on?
Waiting for the 'goofy juice' to start working. We like 'goofy juice' it makes him nice an comfy and not really caring that he's about to have surgery. Gotta get a little reading in first though.

Ethan was very glad when he was able to get the IV out of his arm. Eating and drinking sure does wonders.
You gotta love hospitals, they give you all the sprite you want, and with a bendy straw!!

We were amazed, the night of his surgery we could already see a difference, he was galloping down the hall of the hospital on our way back to the room after spending some time playing in the playroom.

We are amazed at how quickly Ethan is changing now. We are seeing so many new things everyday since he got his shunt.

BTW, Brandon was sitting on a toilet.
