Latest


What a month November was for us! Andrew celebrated his third birthday with a big party. We had lots of cake, and GFCF cupcakes and homemade icecream, and I cannot forget the bounce house. It was really awesome and so big that it took my nephew 2 hours to warm up to get in. We felt really blessed to have our friends and family all there to celebrate with us. I think my favorite part was watching all of the kids lined up in the yard waiting for their turn to hit the huge pinata that Felt's secretary bought. We played a game hours later to see who could clean up the most trash in the yard- the fullest bag won a prize. What a great idea!? Andrew has now been in school for several weeks and seems to be doing well. He loves to look at all the decorations in the hall as we walk with his aide to the classroom. Since starting school he seems to want to be with the group- family or peers more. He doesn't like to be left alone and seeks to find us when we are in another room. What a blessing! I know Thanksgiving was last week but I am so thankful for this happy little boy and everything that he teaches us daily. He really is our little Angel. I will post more pictures later when I can fix our computer but here is a picture of him in his Halloween costume. He really loved trick-or-treating with Manny, Dad and I. And he definitely did not complain when Nonnie gave him his very own GFCF treat bag that night. Pray for us as I am traveling to Dallas this week for the state autism conference and Andrew heads to his grandparents to visit.

It is SO nice to see a little boy with Rett Syndrome - I guess I should phrase that better - my wish is that NONE of our kids had Rett Syndrome! But I had never come across a little guy with Rett Syndrome. I look forward to getting to you know both better!!!
Hugs From Indiana! If you do not mind I am going to link to your blog from Brooklyn's page
