Cibbers and Bits Update

I can't believe my sweet baby will be 9 months old tomorrow! Yesterday we went to see the doctor for a little cold and she went ahead and did Cib's 9 month stats. He is now weighing in at almost 27 pounds and 32 1/4 inches long - both in the 100% for his age. I have a feeling I am in for a big growing boy for a while to come!

Cib is babbling mama and dada. He is pulling up on things, crawling - only backwards and still has no teeth. He magically moves from one side of the room to the other in a flash. I am getting ready to set up a hidden camera to discover his mode of transportation. - wink

We have had a great couple months in our transition to Houston. We are still residing with Austin's parents while we wait for our Dallas home to sell. They have been such a huge help and so gracious to have us (and all our baby gear) descend upon them.

We spent a really great and relaxing weekend in Bandera for Easter. We had lots of good food and plenty of fresh hill country air.

I wanted to update everyone on my mom. While she is still struggling daily with pain and the new challenges presented by old tasks, the Lord has been gracious in helping her to have a brighter outlook mentally. It can be frustrating (I would assume) for her that people assume she is home and just paralyzed. Unfortunately it takes your brain some time to rewire pain sensors. Therefore she is in constant pain in her legs and behind. My dad is working tirelessly to find a pain management specialist to help find my mom some relief.
On Thursday she is turning the big 5-0! We are praying daily that every day gets easier and better than the one before.
