Choo Choo Bob

It’s no secret our little boy is crazy for trains, as I know lots of little boys are. In the summer of 2010, we were introduced to the “Choo Choo Bob” store at the state fair. They had a whole building for a model train setup, train tracks for playing, train toys for sale, and […]


February 2013 Videos

You read that right, folks – it’s only March, and I’ve finished editing last month’s videos! As promised/wished/hoped, I’ve kept up much better with my video editing and blogging! We’ll see if it continues… This batch from February has a good sample of some new signs from Josie, the girls playing, and Mac at Grandma’s playing drums […]


Oh, They Grow!

Mac and Vivian both had an interesting day today. Vivian started with a speech visit where she got to show off her new phrase. I have to preface this with a little background.

We’re happy that one that is sticking right now (probably due to repetition) is “please.” She can also sign: more, eat, and milk, and she knows how […]


Vivian’s Speech Progress

She started with beginning sounds, getting Vivian to repeat words like, “b…b…b…book.” We have to work with her on our own as […]


The Christmas Star

When Mac was to complete a letter to Santa for school, part of it was a list of things he was asking Santa to bring him. On his list was “a Charlie train” (which he already has) and the other was “a star.” I couldn’t quite figure out what the heck he wanted with a […]
