What Are They Doing Now?

My boys are now 5 years old and ALMOST 1 year old. Time flies when you are BUSY! This is what my boys have been up to since turning 5 and ALMOST 1.

Landon Andrew:

*Starting to say words that people understand. (For those who don't know, Landon is affected by Fragile X Syndrome.) Fragile X Syndrome is the most common cause of inherited mental impairment. This impairment can range from learning disabilities to more severe cognitive or intellectual disabilities. FXS is the most common known cause of autism or "autistic-like" behaviors. Symptoms also can include characteristic physical and behavioral features and delays in speech and language development.

*He has over 100 signs to communicate. He understands everything but has a hard time processing it and expressing it.

*Loves his brother Liam. He would spend all day entertaining Liam if we let him. Such a great big brother!

*He can write all the letters of the alphabet and sign them. He loves writing his name on everything!

*He loves chips and salsa. This has been his favorite food for a while now hence why we frequent mexican places a lot.

*He can play basketball and is actually really good! He seems to make the shots pretty often!

*He loves his friends and has to pray for them before quiet time and bedtime as part of his routine.

*He loves routine and thrives on it.

Liam Eli:

*He can sign more and please.

* He can wave hi and bye.

* Plays peek-a-boo.

* Claps and loves to listen to music.

* Gives the best wet kisses.

*He can say bubba, mama, dada and many other sounds we can't understand.

*Cruising around everything. He wants to walk but is a little bit lazy in that department. :-)

*Loves his hot wheels already. He has to carry one around with him. He also likes to put them down his slide.

*He loves crayons even though all he does is eat them right now.

*He is still nursing but will go to whole milk at his birthday.

*He likes all fruits and veggies.
