As many of you know, Tripp has returned home and is no longer in pain. Brian and I are heartbroken for his wonderful mama, Courtney but we're so grateful that he is enjoying the peace that we've all prayed for. He was such a great fighter and will never be forgotten. He has touched all of our hearts. He will be missed, but never forgotten.

|not the best photo of Keira, but I love how big Daylon thinks he is in the one!|
It's been almost 2 months since my last post! I can't believe I've let time get away from me like this! A huge thanks to all of you who have phoned, email or Facebooked me about Daylon's progress. Your support is incredible! Since November, we've been busy getting ready for and enjoying the holidays. Between school and church Christmas activities and our family traditions we've stayed very busy. Today is actually, the big kids first day back from break!

At the moment, Daylon's skin is going through a bit of a rough patch, but I'm sure it will begin to heal soon. His foot, back, back of his neck and diaper area have opened up and been a bit of a problem for him. We've just come to expect these changes in his skin and pray that they will continue to become further and further apart. The problems with his foot kept him from standing for a couple weeks, but just over this weekend, I've seen him pull himself up once or twice. I just wish his foot would heal so he could start walking. He gets so frustrated that he can't keep up with other kids. It tugs at my heart strings watching him try to make friends.

|Mad (he wanted a "cup")|
|Sad ("no cup until you say please and ask nicely")|

We're thankful to all of you for stopping by and checking in on Daylon. Although, I'm not always the most faithful blogger, I am always so grateful for the army of people around the world who love our son and our family and support us in this journey. We love you.
