I figured that since Lance has begun to update this own Facebook statuses, he will want to write his own blog soon. And I wanted to get one more post in before that happens.
Lance is amazing and improving so much in so many ways. I saw a picture of my family when we were featured in the Ledger back around Thanksgiving, and he was so skinny! Sometimes, I think you can see the most change in him by looking through pictures. So, here ya go!

On December 26th, 2011, one of my very best friends, Trisha, gave birth to this little guy, Gavin Cole Weddington.
Some of you know that we purchased a handicap van with a hydraulic lift for Lance's wheelchair last year. With his improved strength, he no longer has to ride in the wheelchair and can help us maneuver him into one of our vehicles. Thats Peyton with him in the minivan.
Lance loves to take pictures with his sister. :)
To the right.. first time in Grandmas pool in 2 years.
The water was warm, my mother nearly had a stroke and my dad was out of town. Thats the only time we get to do anything fun. ;)
But we got him in and he loved it!
The minivan was a little high for him to get in and out of, so he got a Ford Flex. Its awesome.
To the right is him in his new wheelchair, we hope we aren't in that thing too much longer... and there is Peyton again, one of Lance's best friends.
Dad recently put the stationary bike out in the garage, to see if Lance could do any good with it. The first mile was a little rough with trying to keep his feet on the pedals, but the second mile he did without any help from us. Since then he has been pedaling away, increasing the intensity and pushing himself.
As you can see, there is a small picture of Coach Calipari on a license plate on that wall. That is of course, Lance's motivation. ha!
Hanging out with his great friend, Mary at Orange Leaf. :)
Lance finally got a haircut! Courtesy of Amanda Grayson Switzer at J. Curtis Salon.
I think that most of Lance's personality is the same. One things that has changed is his thoughts on babies, he is no longer afraid of them.
