I had to post this one as it's so fun. She just ate a blue sucker. She sure loves candy!
Charlotte got a little walker about a month ago. She took to it very well. We first did it this way for pushing it and walking behind it but after two weeks and the PT came back and said we need to turn this around so she pulls it. It will help her stand up straighter. It sure does.
One of Charlotte's favorite things to do is stand at the chalk board and color. She can get up to it all on her own now. She can get the walker going that direction and maneuver from the walker to the chalk board. She's just getting better and better at getting around.
This is the first time using it. She did so well.

Ok so each time I make a video and see that it's sideways cause I want it tall way on my camera I don't remember that the video is video and is shot sideways. Sorry about that. maybe someday I'll learn that video can't be done sideways. But she does so well in this video I didn't want to just scrap it cause it's sideways. Enjoy!

Hi Heather,

I stumbled upon your blog, and reading a few of the entries has given me a very meaningful inside perspective about having a child affected by spina bifida. I am inspired by your courage and touched by the pictures of your family that I had to reach out. My name is Courtney Beyer, and I am the new Study Coordinator at VitaPath Genetics. Earlier this year, we successfully completed the first phase of our landmark study looking at the genetic factors contributing to spina bifida. In conjunction with our academic collaborators at Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute (CHORI), Stanford, UC Berkeley and UCSF, we recruited over 1,000 women and their child affected by spina bifida to participate.

Our first phase produced promising results but, we believe that it is appropriate for us to replicate this study in a second, independent group of mothers. We are beginning our second study in early January and are reaching out to more mothers to participate. In order to reach as many women as possible, I would very much appreciate if you could include news about the study in your blog. I also have banners and buttons if you would like to post something on your site. In addition it would be great to connect with you via facebook (search SB Genetics) and twitter @sbgenetics.

I would like to get in contact with you to share more information and answer any questions that you may have. Please email me at and visit This website gives an in depth explanation of the study as well as a link if you are interested in enrolling. Thank you for taking the time to read my note and I am greatly looking forward to being in contact.

Warmest regards and happy holidays,
