Post 32 Brillant

Greyson is incredibly intelligent. Unlike most kids, he spends most of his time learning. Watching educational videos on YouTube Kids. We always allow him to watch because it is educational. If it wasn’t we would probably put a much stricter limit on his electronic usage.  I have to say I am so glad that weContinue reading “Post 32 Brillant”

Post 31 My Shadow

It has been an interesting few weeks here at the Guthreau house. We just wrapped up Christmas and New Year’s last weekend and we all had a wonderful time. Greyson enjoyed the Holiday’s, just like most kids would. He interacted with everyone really well and he really participated in Christmas at a whole new level.Continue reading “Post 31 My Shadow”

Post 30 Holidays

Christmas has come and gone so quickly it is amazing! We all had a blessed and joyous holiday this year, especially Greyson! We went over my parents for Christmas Eve and spent time with my sister, brother in law, niece and uncle.  As usual, Greyson was all over the house. He enjoys visiting other placesContinue reading “Post 30 Holidays”

Post 29 Socializing

After a year and a half we finally took Greyson out to a restaurant last week (Aug 2021). We met Alex’s Aunt and Uncle for Dinner to celebrate Alex’s Birthday! We went to her Aunt’s favorite restaurant, who is owned by her best friend. She set us up with a quiet private spot in theContinue reading “Post 29 Socializing”

Post 28 Vocals Incoming

We have seen Greyson go back and forth making progress with speech and then regressing. Back and forth he has gone from babbling at 1 year old to having no speech and just moaning at 18 months. Then babbling again around 2 years old and then 2-3 months later regressing back to only moaning. ItContinue reading “Post 28 Vocals Incoming”

Post 27 Greyson’s Angel

Reflecting on the passing of our beloved Savannah, I have made so many connections with her and Greyson. Savannah was so much more than just our family dog. On top of our love and incredible connection with her, she was always deeply connected with Greyson in such a unique way.  She was always cuddling upContinue reading “Post 27 Greyson’s Angel”

Post 26 Loss

We just had our most challenging experience yet, as a family. We just lost our wonderful angel, Savannah. She was our 18 year old Fox Terrier that Alex had when we first met. Savannah was about 6 years old when I met her and I can’t forget how energetic and loving she always was. SheContinue reading “Post 26 Loss”

Post 25 Fireworks

Our experience with fireworks has been mixed. When he was young we went to a couple festivals and he was a little bothered by the loud noise. But not so much so that he couldn’t handle it. It was a great way to desensitize him to fireworks and loud noises. A couple years later weContinue reading “Post 25 Fireworks”

Post 24 Speech Therapy

Finding Speech Therapy for Greyson has been challenging throughout our journey. During EI we were constantly at war with the case manager. Our OT and DI encouraged us to try and get him speech services. They went as far as offering to support us with the case manager. The case worker continually refused. Sighting thatContinue reading “Post 24 Speech Therapy”

Post 23 Music

Greyson has always been really engaged in music. When he was roughly 4 months old he fell in love with Mickey Mouse Club House. It was great, but he only liked one particular episode, Hibiscus Hola. So we were playing it most of the day for him. He would hardly notice if we played anotherContinue reading “Post 23 Music”
