I can't even keep up with all these kiddos who are telling Spina Bifida to shove it this week! Here are just a few:
Lysette about Lyla:
And Tawny about Joshua:
Guess what--Gavin started walking this week!!!! Check out the video and Heather's inspiring blog post. (This may be a SB mom blog you aren't following yet!)

Guess who else is walking--Mia!!!!!! And she's talking too, which means she's simultaneously kicking Spina Bifida butt and apraxia butt! This kid is a super hero!

In case you missed it, our friends Nicole and Annabelle gave SB a double punch this week with this blog post. Baby girl is strutting in her walker, and Mama ain't playin around with SB ruling their life anymore! Pow!
You Won't Win!!!
And lastly, little Kingsley is proving to SB and everyone else that even surgery can't keep a little hero down. This kid is a rockstar.

I'm liking this! It feels good to have all this butt kicking in one place, right? So here's the deal. I know there's no way I'm going to catch all these success stories--large and small--every week. If you have a "Take THAT, Spina Bifida" moment to share, send me a facebook message! (Not my friend? Add me! Colleen Payne--the one that has 80 mutual friends with you.) Also, I started out asking permission before posting these, and then I realized I would never get anything posted if I kept doing that. So I'm going to assume that if you are posting something on your blog or facebook or babycenter, it's because you want to share how awesome your kid is with the rest of the world, and you won't mind if I post it here. Right? If you do mind, let me know.
Here's to another week of beating the crap out of Spina Bifida! Let's do it!
