Fundraiser Update

First and foremost, I wanted to thank everyone who participated in the Pampered Chef fundraiser.  It was a great success!  I am still waiting to hear from the consultant as to how much was raised but I know that we received A LOT of orders all over the country.  I cannot believe the response we received even from people whom I have never met, but they were a friend of a friend and heard about Dylan's story and wanted to help.  I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of the generosity, support and love you have shown for Dylan and our family!!!  THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!  We even received numerous donations from friends and family that did not need to purchase any kitchen gadgets but wanted to help.  We love you all and are forever grateful.  We feel so very blessed to have you all in our lives.  XOXO.

I wanted to share this picture - Dylan on all fours! This is a skill that Dylan was able to do a little over a year ago (you can see that post HERE) but then lost it after he broke his leg.  It is amazing to see him holding himself up with his arms.  I am one proud Mama!

I had to share this video of the kids swimming.  Dylan's excitement and happiness is adorable and I love it.  This is his response every time he swims.

Here is a little preview of the gait trainer that we are hoping to purchase soon.  This one is on loan from Dylan's awesome PT from the Regional Center who comes to our house once a week.  She was able to get her hands on one and is letting us borrow it for the next week.   Keep in mind that this is his first time in it and I was just excited to see him scooting around in it.  I know we have a lot of work ahead of us but I am ready and I think Dylan is too.


  1. Congrats on the success! I love the videos! Dylan is moving all around in the gait! I'm so excited for him to get his own.

  2. I am so happy it all went so well! I hope Dylan has his gait trainer soon, it looks like he will love it!
    Love the picture and the videos :)
