Happy Birthday Little Man!

Brady turned two recently and while we did not have a large party for him we celbrated with gifts, cake and a day at the pool with a few family members. He loved it and is loving playing with his new trains and car mat. We are doing very well, it appears my position will remain with another agency.
Brady talks more every day. We had enrolled him in speech therapy but doubt now that he will need it. We estimate he has picked up a couple dozen more words in the last couple weeks and he is talking all the time.

Happy Birthday Ryan & First Boat Ride

So sorry for the delay in posting (again )! Since our last post our lives continue to be fairly eventful including my own (Amy's) layoff (the agency is shutting down)!! In case your thinking you've seen this post before - you have... this is one year following Ryan's layoff. I have been in my position for seven years (with the agency for 11) and was very saddened to hear this news. Fortunately, I work within a very supportive school district and county who are working toward maintaining my position with another agency. I will know more next week but remain cautiously optimistic.

Brady is doing very well. He seems to have picked up another couple dozen words since our last post and is now quite the chatterbox. We have a doctor appointment next week and while I am unsure if he has gained weight he does appear to be taller. We do not yet have an answer for the resistance to gain weight but all tests have prooved negative and doctors continue to feel he is otherwise healthy.

We recently celebrated Ryan's birthday. We made him a fish cake and took Brady on his first boat ride (which he of course loved). We will be celebrating Brady's 2nd birthday this week and will be sure to post more then.
