Sunday morning Anton still wouldn't open his eyes. I was already planning on staying home from church but about thirty minutes after he woke up he opened his eyes and has been fine every since.We had a great Lord's Day and enjoyed celebrating the resurrection of Jesus with our church family.

When I was getting Anton ready for church on Sunday he said he wanted to wear his spider-man undies and I thought "why not?" so he got to wear Judah's spider-man undies over his diaper. He was so excited and made sure to tell everyone he talked to at church that he was wearing spider-man underwear.

Here is what Anton wore to church, he said he wanted to wear a nice shirt :)

Anton has ZERO desire to walk. He is in PT twice a week and we work with him throughout the week but I am telling you this boy doesn't want to walk. I got a few blister on my foot the other day and it hurt so bad to walk I can't imagine trying to walk if you knew you would most likely get blister every time you walked. I so want him to walk but he doesn't have the desire to and there really isn't much we can do. I hate even saying that because I really really want him to walk but at the same time if it causes him a lot of pain and he doesn't want to do it I am not going to make him. He loves scooting around the house on his booty but I also thought it would be fun if he could ride around the house so we got him a baby walker and he LOVES it. He can only go backwards right now but he is enjoying some freedom in his walker and I'm sure he will figure out how to go forward soon.

We are staying pretty busy these days, between homeschooling and daily bandage changes there isn't really time for much else. I am enjoying life even though it is busy, I love getting to spend so much time with our kids (well most days I enjoy it :) )

Judah and Anton continue to be best friends and love playing together! 

We are going to see a hand surgeon tomorrow to talk about doing surgery to fix Anton's thumb that is dislocated, we will also talk about releasing some of his other fingers. I will let you all know how it goes.

Thank you, Vanessa. What a wonderful update! So happy to see Antosha smiling - what a handsome boy he is. Kenya and Judah also look super cute. It is amazing that you decided to do homeschooling with all the things you do with Anton in addition. You are a powerhouse!
