We originally started this blog (years ago) to keep track of the every day things in our lives that we didn't want to forget but knew that we would in time. As life got in the way, we posted less and less until March 2010 when Matthew's arrival rocked our world. Now we use this blog to let everyone know how Matthew is progressing and the big events going on at the Hoy House. We are so appreciative of everyone who has read our story and has thought and prayed for Matthew and for us.
When Matthew started walking about 10 days ago, I expected he'd be black and blue all over from the falls. He is all scraped up right now, but not from the walking. He fell off a chair in the kitchen and scraped up his face.

I can't believe the progress Matthew made in the week after he started taking those first few steps. He's learned to pause and balance himself. He's learned to change directions (not always successfully though). He's learned to start off from any standing position. And he doesn't really fall anymore. When he loses his balance, he just sits down. I'm just awed and amazed!
