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”

Post 21 Eating

When Greyson was about 1 years old, he was a phenomenal eater. He tried most things and enjoyed them, including bananas, pasting, eggs, broccoli, hummus, & a variety of snacks and cookies, as well as many purees. He played with his food and truly looked forward to meal time. He was always excited, laughing andContinue reading “Post 21 Eating”

Post 20 Anxiety

Greyson struggles a lot with anxiety. He is extremely careful and cautious with many different things. An example is when Greyson is walking down the stairs he is very careful and takes his time, which is great. He’s also very cautious when we go to the playground and he uses the swings. We have noticedContinue reading “Post 20 Anxiety”

Post 19 Covid

Covid definitely had a big impact on the whole family. Greyson in particular was affected in many ways. To start he was finally starting to attempt to socialize but suddenly we couldn’t let him socialize. I am sure it was a confusing time for him. One minute being encouraged to socialize and the next notContinue reading “Post 19 Covid”

Post 18 My Personal Challenge

I have learned a lot since becoming a father. I know I have talked a little about the struggling time I had when Grey was born. But I haven’t spoken about the parts of that time in my life that I was challenged as a person. I looked back on my life and realized IContinue reading “Post 18 My Personal Challenge”

Post 14 For A Reason

Greyson has really changed our lives in so many ways. I could not possibly have imagined that we would be where we are right now 5 years ago. Everyone always says that having a child is never what you expect, no matter how much you prepare you will never be completely ready. I believed thatContinue reading “Post 14 For A Reason”

Post 13 Fighting For Greyson

When Greyson was in early intervention and about 2 years old, we were working with an awesome OT and DI. We had a wonderful experience with them and Greyson did as well. They really helped us learn a lot. However, the experience with our program director was horrible.  She was never meant to work inContinue reading “Post 13 Fighting For Greyson”
