Great weekend

We had a great weekend. The Buddy walk was this past Saturday. The weather couldn't have been better. The greater Cincinnati area has the largest Buddy walk in the nation. There were 10,000 people there estimated. It's always heartwarming to see the support all around us. Gabe's favorite parts were the dogs and the park. Our team raised about $2000. Special thanks to everyone who donated, walked, or both to show their support for Gabe and our family.
Today we went to a birthday party. It was at a roller skating rink and they also had bounce houses there. Gabe did really well in the inflatable bounce house. He was laughing and having fun. He couldn't stand up very well, but was still having a blast. Rollerskating with difficult for both of them but they actually liked being pulled by us. We had a great weekend.
School is going well for Gabe so far. His teacher said that he tries to hide that he can stand up and walk around so well now because he still likes them helping him so much. He doesn't like people to know all that he can do because he's stubborn. He seems to be very happy lately, and likes the routine. He loves going to school, and I think it really helps keep him focused.
Alyssa is doing great. She talks up a storm. She's getting bigger every day. She loves daycare also. During dinner tonight, she turned to me and said "thank you for cooking Mama". She's got an attitude to her, but she's really a sweet girl.
