THE WIGGLES!!!!

We had an AMAZING time on Friday at the Wiggles concert!! We also had an unexpected surprise….Thursday night I was chatting online with a friend of mine…who ended up hooking me up with a DIRECT contact to the Wiggles. LONG story short – three emails and a phone call later we were scheduled to be […]

more bath fun

more bath fun

This little kiddo who went through his phase of hating water is getting brave! I mentioned that he loves his bath lately – now, his latest is to stick his face under the faucet! Just look at that sweet face, I think he is making sure it is ok? Forget sticking his tongue in it […]

Learning to Self Feed

Today when Grammy was feeding Boston his cereal – which she was helping him hand over hand…we decided “why not” – lets get this self feeding started :) I had forgotten what a fun and SUPER messy process this was!! I do not know if this video adequately shows the amount of cereal that was […]

Bath time with Boston

Bath time with Boston

Boston went through a phase where he hated baths, I mean we are talking -screaming and crying as I wash him up as quick as humanly possible. It was miserable…..for both of us. I am happy to say that phase has passed! He now LOVES his bath! Last night as soon as we walked through […]

I have been so encouraged lately hearing stories about adults with Down Syndrome owning their own businesses, going to college, getting married, and so many other amazing things…..gone are the days where “he will be able to bag groceries one day” (which is EXACTLY what my geneticist told me) I have dreams for this kiddo….big, […]

Voting ends SUNDAY!

Voting ends SUNDAY!

I grew up in a tiny little town – and I LOVED it! The people there were (and are) amazing! I have not lived there since my college summers but growing up there was honestly the best childhood a girl could ask for. Why then should I be surprised that they are STILL there for […]

OT

OT

Boston was working on his fine motor skills today with Miss Heidi. He has come a long way! And….Miss Heidi has SO much patience with him-we appreciate that so much! I guess we will take this as a sign that he worked hard?

Out for a stroll

Out for a stroll

Boston wanted to hang outside for awhile today. He has come such a long way with some of the sensory issues we were having. It’s hard to believe this is the same little guy who cried when we wanted him to try walking outside on a windy day! Look at my amazing kiddo now!!!!

Climbing

Climbing

Lately Boston’s favorite thing to do is CLIMB…I have found him climbing on just about everything….I’m gonna have to keep my eye on this one! A desk is WAY more fun to STAND on than SIT at!
