                  Brodie was a vampire this year, and he went trick-or-treating for the first time even though we FROZE. I almost felt bad taking him out in such cold but you know how our kids generally are, given the opportunity to knock on about 20 doors and […]

Brodie had his third birthday in May. He is doing very well and we are just enjoying him watching him grow and learn and play. His biggest challenge is talking but we are getting involved in lots of therapies for that working on sign language and PECS as well now. There is a big gap […]

Say “Cheese” Brodie

October 20, 2011 by

This was a gorgeous fall weekend where we had alot of fun but it was particularly satisfying for me because I made it a priority to take lots of pics and capture the “Brodie” I get to see, play with, experience everyday, the faces it’s hard to catch unless you make every event a photo […]

Brodie the Walking Wonder

August 28, 2011 by

I’m usually very wordy but Brodie suddenly walking so well has practically left me speechless.  I’ll just let the video speak for itself.  So proud of my wonder-boy!  Wish I could take the credit, but it is truly from within his special little spirit that he accomplishes these things and I’m amazed!!!  (You’ll have to […]

He’s Walking!

June 30, 2011 by

Starting in January Brodie’s physical therapist (who he sees once a week for 1 hour) started doing nothing but walking and walking each time she worked with him. She taught us the most comfortable way to hold his arms, one of us on each side, and we walked and walked and walked. At first he […]

Brodie’s Friends

June 1, 2011 by

I had to post the pics of Brodie getting the present his babysitter gave him…a framed collage of his friends that I wrote about in my last posting. It’s too cute how much he loves the picture and how much he loves his friends!

Brodie Turns Two

May 29, 2011 by

I put together a vidoe montage of Brodie’s second year- the images say it all- Brodie has had an incredible year and we are so proud of him- this is the year he learned to sit up by himself, crawl, point at objects, do yogo LOL (its in the video). Some of our best memories […]

The Oreo bag says “Milk’s Favorite Cookie” and Brodie apparently agrees. On Friday I picked up a bag and a couple new plastic bibs and a gallon of milk. After dinner I gave Brodie a glass of milk, half an oreo and watched him go to town. He takes directions really well now so that helps him learn some of these new tricks we practice. I’m thrilled I caught it all on video, the whole family has already seen it this weekend!

My little helper made Easter cookies with me today! I took about 30 pictures and finally picked this one, one of the first, and I’m laughing when I look at it now because it’s so staged, the way the counter looked in the end was a disaster and Brodie had pink icing all over his […]

Getting To the Point

March 25, 2011 by

I’ve been wanting to share this latest video- Brodie learned to point in January and we have been having so much fun communicating with him ever since. Somewhere around 9 months old I think it was, he actually had words, (he’s 22 months now) kitty was the first, then dada and mama and he used […]
