Wow! Three years ago we were in the hospital not knowing what was ahead of us! The LORD has brought us so far since then! Andrew has been doing great! He still receives Occupational, Physical and Speech Therapy. We are seeing a lot of progress with the Botox treatments too. He still does not have much use of "righty", but he has become more aware of it and uses it to assist "lefty".
Andrew also started Preschool today and loved it! It was snowing so I hope to have some pictures when he goes again on Friday.
I love you buddy! You are growing so fast! I pray that the greatest gift we can give you is Christ! Happy Birthday!

I love a good Hand-me-down! Nothing is better! Curt and I have recently been blessed with the opportunity to buy the house he grew up in, and that we are currently living in. It is so great! It has a great big yard and plenty of room for our family and friends to come stay too! It needs some updates here in there but that will be part of the fun of making it "ours."

Here are all their names from when they built the house back in 1983.
This is a height chart that was started by Curt and his sister, and we have now added the next generation of Chadwick kids.
So here's to the next 20 something years the house has to offer!

This weekend my mother-in-law and I took Andrew and Aubrey to the CT shore. It was a beautiful day! We went some new friends and had a blast! Aubrey keep going after the sand and Andrew had a great time digging holes and playing with his trucks!
Also Aubrey has now started CRAWLING!!!! She sure is busy! Here is the video:

It has been three months since we left our friends and family back in Texas (writing this is bringing tears to my eyes thinking of you all!) Aubrey has grown so fast these couple months, she is rolling over , scooting all over the place, and almost sitting on her own. Andrew has given up his paci (which was probably harder on me than it was for him), talking all the time now, and sleeping in a big boy bed. Potty training is next on our list! Curt is hard at work comutting back and forth from here to D.C., enjoying the challenges that being a Caption brings! I am still able to stay home with the kids, for now. Raising a child with special needs is a job all of it's own. I am so blessed to be settling in here in our "new" house. Our family has been so helpful and they have blessed us in so many ways! Nothing is more important than family and friends! We are still looking for a church in the area. With Curt working weekends it has made it a challange. But I am reminded of God's beauty every time I look out my window and see the rolling hills, the fireflys, the flowers and the faces of my children. It is through times like these that remind me to just be still and see Him at work in our lives. I am also reminded that it is nothing of my own doing that has me where I am, it is all Him and Him alone!

It's official! We have sold the house and have moved to Connecticut! Curt made the LONG drive with his Dad this week and they named themselves, "Nick" and "Chip!" Which despite the name, everything made it in one piece. (Our guest bed frame flew out of the truck but that was on the road after we unloaded it!)
We will be moving into the house Curt grew up in! How neat is that! What's even better is, in the next couple months my sister-in-law and her husband will be building on the lot next door, so they will be our neighbors! I'll try to post some pics soon of the house. But I lost my camera today when we took Andrew and Aubrey to see Thomas (more on that later).

Wow! Where do I start? The last two months have been pretty crazy for us. It started when our family of three turned into a family of four, with the birth of our daughter, Aubrey Noel. Then Curt got promoted to Captain! Yeah husband!!! So instead of commuting to Atlanta every week, now it's DC. After one week of the new commute we realized this was not going to work, we had to move! So a week and half later with the help of my mother-in-law, father-in-law and our friends, we started the first phase of our move. We packed and moved to Connecticut. Which is where we are now, waiting and praying for our house to sell and figure out where we are going to settle.
Aubrey is 10 1/2 weeks and getting so big! So far she has been to TX, CT, UT, GA and MN(via the airport). She is cooing and smiling all the time. It is amazing how fast they grow!
Andrew is getting big and doing great! He went for his second round of botox a couple weeeks ago in TX. I can see a huge diffrence. Now we are trying to figure out the best therapy here in CT for him. It is very overwhellming because there are so many opptions! We started swim therapy here at the YMCA and he loves it!
Also for Easter Andrew rode a pony! He loved it!
Curt has been busy flying and tinkering on his RC plane when he is home.
It is so nice to be here enjoying the time with family.
