Wyatt amazes us everyday! He is accomplishing new things all the time. he's our miracle

Just in the last two months, Wyatt has done so many new things. About 1 month ago, he started finally crawling on all fours. He's been army crawling for months, but at his older brother's baseball party, he got up and crawled in front of a room full of woman, oohing and aahing. All the moms on this team know Wyatt's story, 1/2 the room was crying tears of joy. About a week or so ago, he started pulling himself up like crazy, now he's also starting to cruise around furniture. Congratulations Wyatt. We love you!!!

Wow, it has been forever since I connected with families on PPMD.  Life has been crazy busy for our family.  Wyatt started Kindergarten year, which has been a huge adjustment.  We just got back from Cincinnati and all his well.  HIs motor skills are stable and heart is great.  Blessings!

I'm not even sure really where to begin........

Our family has been so fortunate to be involved with such a "beautiful" group of people. 

Wyatt was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy in Jan 2009.  Since then, things…

Wyatt turns 4

Posted on February 22, 2012 at 5:24pm 0 Comments

This morning at 1:40am my sweet baby Wyatt turned 4.  I can't believe I'm even looking at that number 4.  4 is a big kid, what happened to my "baby!"  I'm  honored and blessed to call myself Wyatt's mom.  He is brave, strong, and giving.  This kid has made me a better person, there is no doubt in my mind.  I am so lucky to know this child, to have this child a part of my life.  Every second, every minute, I treasure and adore him (even when he's a monster, hahaha).  Thank you Wyatt for…

Our family trip to the pumpkin patch.  We had a great time laughing and just spending time together.  Over the last 3 years life has thrown up a few curve balls, but I am so happy to have my amazing family to love.  (Left to right, Wyatt 3 1/2, Travis 12, Carter 8 months, Leigha 17, Brady 6, Anthony…

Thank you, Melissa!  (I love the name Wyatt--my grandma's maiden name, actually).  Wish I could've met you at the meeting.

Hi Mel!

Okay, call me crazy, but for the life of me I can't seem to find where all the groups are.  When they changed the website, I completely lost the groups.  Can you help me?  I know you'll know how to get there. 


Thank you for the email last night and your support, really what would I do without you :-)!!

Hey! Hope you guys have a fun and safe trip. Thanks for your words of encouragement regarding steroids -- I think we're doing the right thing by starting him now, but it is a scary step. Definately makes things feel "real". Just read a blog from October. So Wyatt actaully jumps and runs? That's awesome! Max can race walk like a champ, but just can't run or jump at all. I'm hoping steroids change that. I'd love to chat with you anytime too! Take care!

Hi Melissa!!  Carter is adorable (so is his big brother Wyatt!!).  His birthday is right in the same bracket as my boys!  Ethan is the 11th and Joseph is the 24th.  (I am also on the 9th).  We have Ethan in a research study for DMD in Minneapolis.  It's amazing the difference in the clinic there from the one we go to (Minneapolis is ALOT better than Madison).  Glad to see things are going well.  It was good to hear from you.  I don't really do much on here anymore either.  Occasionally I pop in if I get an e-mail that someone sent me a message, etc.  If you are on FB you will have better luck chatting with me there.  Talk to you later!!

Hey, Melissa! I saw that y'all will be headed to Cinci soon. Do you think you will start steroids? We saw her a couple of weeks ago and decided to start Max in about a month. He is in the 75th percentile for height, so she felt that the growth issue won't affect him for awhile (he's the second tallest kid in his class -- he goes to a Montessori school three days a week). I'm super nervous about starting him so young, but I'd love it if he gained some strength and, consequently hopefull won't fall down so often. I'm most concerned about weight gain -- I've been hearing a lot about how hungry people on steroids get. Anway, just wanted to chat with another mom of a little guy! Hope you and your crew are doing well!
