Playhouses, Zoo, and the Happy Meal Shapped Mcdonalds

There has been a lot of things going on lately. The kids have been back to school for a couple of weeks, and the hubby is back to work also. I have started babysitting my friends two children during the days, and working from home for a few hours each day as well. We got the playhouse done, but they haven't gotten to play in it a whole lot due to the cold weather. Sunday it was nice and about 65 out, so we packed up all five kids (my friend and her two kids came along) and we headed to the Dallas Zoo. None of us had been before, and the kids enjoyed themselves.
monkey still is not walking, he will be 17 months in a few weeks, and just has no desire to walk. He will walk holding onto something, but not on his own! It is so frustrating, we've tried everything!! His aspiration issues seem to be OK, but maybe coming back again, and having some other minor breathing issues. He will be going back to the lung doctor soon so hopefully they can see whats going on. I don't know if there is a connection in the not walking, breathing problems, aspiration, and rashes or if they are all just bombarding him at once. Any ideas??

Hey girl! I hope things get better with Anthony soon. One question...is he getting what he wants/needs brought right to him instead of him having to go get it? Maybe that could help some with the walking, but if it's something with his lungs then I don't know how that would help much.

Please keep us posted!

hes not getting stuff given to him, no. he will crawl and get something, but walking nope! We've tried to hold something away and have him go get it...no luck! idk maybe he has his daddy's willpower and is....lazy! lol
