Grey's gift to us...

Grey has been working very hard on a special gift to give to all of us. There really aren't words to describe how proud we are of him...to say that we are bursting with pride just doesn't even seem to come close. Take a look...

More to come on how this came about. I just couldn't wait to share with all of you! :)

Merry Christmas to you all!!

Much Love,
Leigh, Andy, and Grey

What an AMAZING gift! We love it! David and I just happened to be on the couch sharing the laptop and got to watch that together at the same time! David said "Is that GREY?" I think he was blown away. :) Phenomenal. Your family means the world to us and little Grey just inspires us and fills us with pride at the same time! We are so happy for you guys and all Grey has accomplished. LOVE YOU!!!

Way to go, Grey!!!!! So cool to see that amazing little boy WALKING! As I watched this video I cried of course, but was also reminded of that little boy and his family (yes, that's you guys) I read about what seems like so many months ago. When I was scared, terrified, trying to be excited, craving information from REAL people, not google. Thank you all for being an inspiration!!!

How AWESOME!!! Grey's hard work and determination are so clear! I know just how much pride and joy surely overflowed from you guys with showing this off. Two proud parents, a room full of happy (probably crying, friends and family), and one little guy WALKING!!!!!!

OKay Okay TEARS, I really can't wait for this day to come. What's the secret. We are doing therapy 6 times a month and it seems progress is so SLOW. Congrats. I am sooo happy for you guys.

Amanda said...

I missed this last week!
I can't beleive it (OK I can - Grey is AMAZING). What a wonderful present!

Ray, Star, and Tanner said...

Just getting to commenting now! LOVE IT! Tanner climbs... Grey walks. :) Grey can teach Tanner, and Tanner can teach Grey. Tanner uses mostly arm strength. And yes...our kids look like they are at least 5 now! Where has the time gone!

Andy & Leigh,

Since amazing progress. Your Grey is quite the little man. And........you guys are pretty amazing yourselves. Your dedication and support for all Spina Bifida foundations/organizations is 2nd to none. Grey is so lucky to have you just as you are so lucky to have him.

I have your web link saved and continue to check periodically on how things are going. I have never commented but after viewing the latest, I just had to.
