Update and request to support Team Truman in the March for Babies

I know it's been more than two years since we've updated this blog. I come to offer an update on Truman and an appeal to support Team Truman in our fundraising efforts for the March of Dimes March for Babies.
First, an update. Truman is doing amazingly well. He still faces a number of challenges and will for a long time, but he has far surpassed everyone's expectations for him. He is a beautiful, happy, and healthy little boy who is learning and discovering new things every day. He began walking just before his second birthday and starting talking around his third birthday. After almost no speech for the first 34 months of his life, his speech progress is now exploding. He still has a long way to go to catch up to the speech of his peers, but is making progress on a daily basis. We have worked through major feeding disorder issues over the last two years, but Truman made huge strides during an intense feeding program last fall.
He is now 3.5 years old, weighs a little more than 26.5 pounds, and is 35 inches tall. He loves trains, dinosaurs, and cars. He is in constant motion and is very affectionate. He likes to count everything and name their colors. He has become a brunette and still has his gorgeous smile. He calls himself "Tru" and has a penchant for filling his pockets with small toys, much to the dismay of his preschool teachers.
Now, for the second reason for our post, please help support Team Truman in the March for Babies coming up in about three weeks http://www.marchforbabies.org/kaltenbaumer

I must say that it was only on a whim and a trip to an old computer (updating things for kiddos) that I checked on Truman.

It blesses my heart that you took a moment to update. So sorry the opportunity to support your team has passed.

I was pregnant with my first child just before Truman was born, and am now pregnant again. Pregnancy worries made me think of Truman and look up his blog, and I was so delighted to see an update!

He is a beautiful little boy and I thank you for your update of how he is doing another two years on. I hope that perhaps you'll consider another when he hits six!

Take care, and I wish you all well for the future!

Oh boy, Truman was on my mind this week so I googled him. I guess I am a bit late on this update (a lot late, haha), but glad to hear how well he is doing.
