Brandon's Aunt Debbie, Uncle Rich, and cousins, Zack and Ben, came to visit today. They were in New York for a family function so they stopped to see us on their way home. We had brunch with them and grandma and grandpa Newman at our house and then they stayed to watch the Steelers game with us. Brandon had a lot of fun playing with everyone and was all smiles.
Brandon took 4 steps by himself tonight. He pulled up on Stu when I was in the kitchen getting his bottle ready and when I came into the living room I put my arms out for him to come to me and he took 4 steps. We then stood him up several more times and he took anywhere from 2-4 steps a few more times. Maybe walking without holding onto anything is in the near future since he proved he can do it.
My name is Karen and I have been married to my husband Stu for a little over 9 years. I was pregnant with twins and lost our baby girl at 20 1/2 weeks after I had premature rupture of membranes. I stayed pregnant with the other baby and our first child, Brandon Tyler, was born on July 5, 2008 at 26 weeks and 1 day. Our second child, Wesley Matthew, was born full term on June 29, 2011. This blog is documenting our children.
