South Davis was kind of a neat opportunity for us to visit the facility and see how nice the staff and nurses were to Carter. Some kiddos are there long term because they don't have family or their health issues are so extreme. I was only able to visit 4-6 hours a day because Sierra was with me and was too feisty and there just wasn't a lot to do. The whole nursing staff told me everyday how much they loved having him, how sweet and cute he was, and how much he laughed. I was glad to hear he was happy there and well taken care of. It's nice to know there is a place Carter can go if we don't want him to come home yet or don't want him going up to Primary's. I was very impressed with South Davis, and I'm a close friend with the director Dr. Murphy.
Carter turned 3 on Saturday! We decided to throw a pirate party because he was a pirate for Halloween and we still had some cute supplies leftover. I bought Carter this shirt from Gymboree because it had a cute pirate ship, island and monkey on it. Perfect. We had a great turnout that we were quickly running out of room and people spread down the hall and to the kitchen and dining room. The cake was adorable and so yummy. Carter was spoiled with lots of toys and cute clothes. I was especially surprised and grateful for friends that came, one in particular was Melanie and Whitney. They live close by and Whitney also has 1p36. It was a treat to have them come and have my family meet them. This is a picture with a bunch of kids and it looks like Carter is smiling at Whitney.
We played pin the flag on the map and the kids got bubbles- I also had party hats or eye patches for those that wanted to wear them. It was a fun party!
