Caitlyn's first two steps

Big news today is that Caitlyn took 2 steps. She was standing all by herself and then took a step. Then she was still standing and then took another step. So I guess not long now...

We didn't do much. Terence had to go to work today and so the girls and I spent the morning at home and then this afternoon after lunch we went for a stroll around the shopping centre. It was nice just getting out the house a little bit. In the one shop I found the biggest balloons I've even seen and I bought some. Got home and blew up a balloon for Bianca. I think it could have gone a bit bigger, but I decided it was big enough.

Sharon, are you getting nervous? Just 1 more week to go before you shave off all your hair. If you would like to sponsor Sharon, please let me know. Read original entry here.

Hi Lea
I am not nervous (yet) just curious as to what it will be like with no hair at all. (The last time I shaved it off I still had hair as I did it on no. 4). Do you have any tips for my soon to be bald head?
Straight after the Shavathon we are driving through to Jo'burg to go to the Celine Dion concert. I have bought myself a beanie in case it is cold.
Congrats on Caitlyn's 1st steps. Now your days of sitting still are really over.
Hugs and kisses to the girls.

Hi Lea,
That's so exciting about Caitlyn's first steps. Way to go Caitlyn!
Those balloons are brilliant too.
I'm so glad you got to meet Ollie and his family. Ollie is such a sweet little boy and they are a really lovely family. It hasn't been easiy for them having to travel up to Auckland all the time, especially with a baby due any day.
We are so enjoying having a break from the Mercaptopurine. I guess we will be starting again next week, but just on a little amount. That is ok, at least they are taking the situation seriously.
I must go and check out your buddy map.
Have a great day you guys.
Bridget and Peter
