We had a fun time surprising Granny Carol with warm winter clothes. She is not use to the freezing cold temperatures we have had lately in Florida. We got her a hoodie, a scarf, and mittens. We had hopes to go to an outdoor place for lunch, but the 50's don't make for a good time outdoors (at least for us Floridians). We decided to stay in. Granny Carol surprised us by making lunch for everyone instead. She makes the best Pelau.
We have been receiving the most beautiful Christmas cards this year. We love to see how the kids grow and what our family and friends have been doing for the past year. We are very sorry that we did not get our own cards done this year. Please check back later for some Christmas photos.

Aaron could not be doing better. He has gained 4 pounds in the past month and grown about 2 inches. He has not completely caught up to where he was before he stopped growing, but he is very close. He is back to 75-90% in height (was 95%) and 10-25% in weight (was 50%). By any standards he is well within a normal range and we couldn't be happier. He is walking all over the house and rarely crawls any more. He is so smart. He is starting to understand most things we tell him. He chooses not to understand "no" :)
The bone marrow team did a preliminary search and found no live donors that match Aaron. They found a couple of cord blood units that may work. They are doing more processing and will update us in the next week or so.
