Back from blogging break.

I took the last month off blogging to focus on finishing exams and school. I only have a month lawft in my practicum and then I will finally be done working five days a week. Being a working mom has been so, so much harder than staying at home.
Cayden turned 8 months and has learned to stand on his own and is soo close to crawling. He is rocking on his hands and knees and moves backwards back to sitting so it won't be long!
We had CF clinic this moth as well and caydens growth is hanging around the 25th percentile for weight and the 50th for height. He weighed in at 17.5 pounds and 69 inches so he is following his curve nicely. Everyone was happy with his progress but we are still having GI troubles so he was put on some flagyl to try and curb some of the bacterial overgrowth they think he has. Other than that everything was good. We have to come back to clinic in July to meet with the GI doc again.
Our great strides walk was really successful with team cayden tripling our goal of a thousand dollars. We had 15 walkers with us that day who all braved the cold winds to walk to cure cystic fibrosis! It was amazing to feel such support and to meet some other cf'ers I'm the chapter; one of which is a lung transplant survivor of ten years. 180 000 was raised at the calgary walk this year which is just amazing!
Anyways I am writing this from my iphone so I don't have pictures to add but I will post them soon!
