Big news! Joey’s newest milestone!

*this post may contain affiliate links

Whenever Joey passes a new milestone, no matter what it is, I try to celebrate the moment whatever it may be. As a special needs mom, we pray and hope for our children to try or do something new on a daily basis! We relish and hope for those moments. At 11 years old, I pray for those moments each and every day, especially for my child to speak.

Today Joey decided to bless us with a new word! Up until now, my boy has only said, “mom”, “yes”, and “no”. Now we can add his favorite animal to his vocabulary! Although he doesn’t pronounce the “f” in fish, he says “ish” as he does the sign for it as well! Talk about a proud mommy moment!

Jojoe was rewarded with a trip to the pet store to watch the fish and even pick a few news ones out for his tank! We also read One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss this afternoon and also cuddled on the couch and took giggle filled selfies together!

I can’t wait to hear what ever Joey’s next word may be!

The Present


The Present from Jacob Frey on Vimeo.

This morning on my Facebook’s feed, this article came up featuring “The Present” by Jacob Frey, and how it’s about a disabled puppy and a little boy. Of course, I clicked and started watching it. At first I figured it was about a video game obsessed boy who was just being a brat. Boy I was wrong! By the end of the video, I was bawling!

You will see why this video won so many awards (59 to be exact!) and the hearts of so many people!
