"Bu-Bye"

 This is one of my very favorite photos of Caleb. We have one of those play tunnels that you can crawl through.  Caleb was standing, and I dropped the tunnel over him....he just looked up and gave me a big smile!  This smile makes me so happy!


Yesterday I heard some Caleb news that made me really happy!  Caleb is non-verbal (you can read about that here), and he goes to the Kennedy Krieger Institute every Thursday morning for speech therapy.  Joe usually calls me with news about how his therapy went. Today he was very excited when he called.

Here's what Joe shared on Facebook yesterday:

"This morning, we were at Kennedy Krieger for Caleb's speech session. His therapist was working with him and I was watching from another room on CCTV. All of the sudden, you hear a little voice say "bu-bye". I about fell out of my chair. Caleb spoke!! It made my morning!! Here's to many more words hopefully!!"

How's that for awesome news!!
Totally made my day!
It's amazing what a couple little words will do to you.

 





Please remember Caleb in your prayers.
He works so hard at learning....he just wears himself out!
Remember his family too...never seems to be a dull moment in their lives!  The photo below was taken at the State Fair this year.  It's the first year that Caleb was tall enough to get on the Tilt-A-Whirl.  See what I mean?  Never a dull moment!! 


Thanks to Johanna and Joe for the photos...I got them off their Facebook and Instagram feeds!

Ugh, that photo of him on the first day of school. Probably my very favorite of him ever!

My heart goes out to Caleb and all of you. My nephew is going through the same thing...and after same therapy, talks non stop now. He is high functioning and THE MOST popular kid in his class. Everyone loves him to pieces..as do us.

Big hugs to all....

I read Joe's FB post this morning and was overwhelmed. I can't begin to imagine what it was like for them to hear those tiny words. Caleb will be in my prayers and I hope his progress continues to go forward. He is a beautiful child of God!

The sweetest, most adorable little guy ever! Words don't seem so important when your face and heart smiles like Caleb's does though it is such great news that he spoke. Sending prayers for Caleb and his family!
