Summertime rolls.....but more news soon.

I realized that we must really be caught up in the whole summer thing, because we haven't taken any photos since Alligator Point. We have been busy every day but at the same time, not much new to report on this week. Except...

Carina turned 11 months yesterday and decided to just walk all the way across the house! She had been taking one or two steps, and then all of a sudden - she's off! She also climbed out of the tub tonight by herself (I should say slid out into my arms), so we definitely need to keep our hands on her!

Dante is doing great in swim lessons - really enjoying it. We took him to Aunt Laurie's pool on Saturday and he didn't ever want to come out of the water. (Unless there were m&m's involved). Then we went to the beach on Sunday and had a great time. I think just getting him more comfortable with the water is helping and he should be swimming in no time! I tell you what though, I could sure skip sitting out on the hot pool deck sweating and looking longingly at the water while he is in lessons!

Potty training is going well. He's been doing great at school and home and filling up his chart with stickers. Mommy and Daddy don't mind getting the ice cream treat for filling up a row either! We hope to transition soon into the Diego and Thomas underwear!

Dante has his 6 month post-chemo CT scan on Thursday morning. As you may know, this is the first real benchmark in his post treatment schedule, as the highest rate of recurrence with GCT is in the first 6 - 9 months. We are going to try to not sedate him too much this time, as that is very stressful. The last time we went, he did really well and only needed a "little something" to take the edge off. We will be going into the clinic for an AFP as well, so it will be good to have an update on where he's at. Hopefully all good to report by the end of the week.

So set out a bowl of the Haagen Dazs and think good thoughts...
