Hi Everyone, well a lot has been going on. We are planning our first TEAM CARTER hydrocephalus association walk to help raise money for research for those of us who are affected with hydrocephalus every day. Our biggest complaint is that no shunt is forever. As you know Carter will need a shunt for the rest of his life. His body will reject some and others will get infected and so on. We have met several children who have had somewhere between 40-80 shunts before they go to Kindergarten. Every time the doc's do surgery on the brain we run a risk of more brain damage. The researchers are working so hard to create smarter shunts that last longer, also shunt alternatives. So we would love you to come out and support Carter on September 20, 2008 at Sugarhouse Park.

Well we broke our first tooth, his bottom front. I tried to get a picture of it but he like to stick his tongue out so we have no picture.

He's cruising around all over. He is still not holding his heavy head up but that hasn't slowed him down. He's rolling and rolling and rolling. He can get across the room this way. He also tries to crawl (with his head still on the ground) he gets his legs just a movin and drags his head moving forward. I guess where there's a will there's a way, right!?!
