Happy Birthday to Grey!!

Tomorrow my baby boy turns TWO! I can't even believe it! These past two years have been the best of my life and they have just FLOWN by! It seems like only a few months ago we brought our sweet boy home and wondered "now what?" and now, we are pros at this whole parenting thing...hahaha..yeah right! :) Although we have two years under our belt and are doing pretty good! :)
Remember this one?

Thinking back to two years ago tonight, I wish I would have known what our life would be like. I wish I would have known how amazing Grey would be, that the gut-wrenching worry and fear that I had so weren't worth it and were so not needed. Sure, I still worry and have plenty of fears...especially as our little guy gets older and his differences are becoming more obvious, but it is so much easier to take it one day at a time. It is so much easier to push those fear aside and think about today, to see how happy he is RIGHT NOW and to soak it up!! I love Grey more than I ever thought possible and can't imagine my life without this perfect little two year old in it!!!



Oh, and Grey has learned something new!! We travel 45 min-1 hour (each way) 2-3 times a week for therapy and his favorite video to watch is an Elmo video about the alphabet...well...he can now recognize the letters!! This was a huge surprise to me! I knew that he knew the alphabet, but he shocked me by pointing out an L on the keyboard and saying "L" well, it turns out he knows way more than L...take a look!!


Much love from Leigh, Andy, and the Birthday Boy!!
