Our Special Needs Journey:Part 23 - January/February Update

Since it's been awhile this is, as usual, pretty lengthy ( like anyone could ever describe me as pithy!) so I will sort by child to keep it as simple as possible.

----------------------- BRUCE (& ME) ----------------------------

The highlight of January for Bruce and me was our trip to Texas! We flew down a week shy of his 2nd birthday, barely qualifying for him to fly free. It was sooooo great to see some friends and family that live there (Denton is in the DFW area).

I put together a couple busy bags to keep Bruce entertained on the plane - and while we were there. Everything could be played with while sitting in an airplane seat (even with both of us sharing the seat one of the flights and not able to put the tray down). Here's a post about what was in all of them!

Ode to Toddler: Happy 2nd Birthday Bruce!

Often the response, when reflecting on how much time has passed and how grown up our kids are, is to exclaim "how did that happen so fast?!"  Not today. Today Baby Brucie is 2 years old! While I AM in total awe of how much he has changed in 2 years, and what a big boy he now is, I wouldn't describe any part of Bruce's life as "fast."

This is by no means a bad thing! Rather an astounding blessing! I wholeheartedly feel I have SAVORED these precious years with my child. He so completely compliments our family and we are all so in love with this Little Man.
