12/24/2010-We're pregnant!
3/23/2011-Tuckers a boy. We also find out he has Myelomeningocele. Which is a defect where the spinal cord doesn't fully develop. Essentially the spinal cord has an opening. This also causes hydrocephalus; spinal fluid builds up in the ventricals (in the head) and needs a shunt put into to circulate back into the body.
3/28/11-Met with neurologist to talk about severity of Tucker's defect. It was hell waiting 5 days. After having a good talk, Liane and I went and did some baby shoppiing. It was a great day of relief.
7/27/11-C-section date 730am. Surgery to close his spine to come within 48hrs.
7/28/11-Surgery to close spine.

Tucker had his annual appointments with both Pediatrics and Urology. He still is a little guy, around the 3rd percentile. He is sitting up, using both hands, and extremely close to crawling.  His legs move a lot more now, kicking and putting weight on them. He's got 2 little teeth on the bottom and we think there are more coming. He said "da da" for the first time last friday, 8/3/12, now it seems like all he says is "da da da da da da da da" lol. The ultrasound on his bladder showed a full bladder. So urology has us cathing him once a day to make sure he is emptying completely. He is a big bundle of joy! He has so much fun playing with toys and looking at everything he can get his eyes on. He LOVES new people, he wants to talk, and smile, and play with almost everyone he sees. Just a very very happy baby! We love him more and more each day.
