Today I’d like to tell you about some words he can say perfectly, flawlessly, amazingly and very, very frequently. Bum bum. Yep, he says bum bum a lot.  He may be … Continue reading »

Would you like an affle-dom?

Blake has begun to speak more and more and he’s getting easier to understand all the time.  Three weeks of vacation with mom and dad AND Sharon were just what his developing communication skills needed.

Last Day in Thailand

For our last day in northern Thailand we went on a bike trip.  Blake was a trooper.  He rode on Scott’s bike all day and didn’t complain a bit.  At each stop he found something to do – a rickety old playground at a temple, his cars and a swing at lunch, and ice cream … Continue reading »
