Blessings from above

Tuesday April called to say that our insurance has agreed to cover therapy visits in our home! This is an answer to prayer. It is so much easier on all of us to not have to pack up and travel 30 miles for an hour long session once a week. I had two reps from BCW come to the house yesterday and we devised a plan for James in their program. A speech and language pathologist (SLP) will be coming to our home once a week to work with James and check his weekly progress. Not just in speech but in every area that has potential to be a problem one day. Even though he doesn't have any speech delays right now she is going to be working with him to try and prevent any delays in the future. I met the SLP that will be working with James yesterday and fell in love with her too!! I am amazed that we have met 3 state workers and spoken to 6 and have yet to have a bad experience. Another blessing! I put together a little video to show how well James is walking now and all the other things he can do.

How absolutely adorable your babies are. Watching James brings back so many memories of my daughter in early development with CP. Oh the wonders of God's work.

They are the cutest! James is doing wonderfully well! It is great to see him walking and talking. Thank God that you have had good experiences with state workers thus far. I pray it will continue, and that James will thrive with their assistance and expertise. He appears to be well on his way!

This video clip is Academy Award material, 'manda. Seriously. How beautiful and entertaining those little ones are and yes,JAMES is LEADING male in a supporting role with Audrey in the female role. They are so amazing together and James walking just crunched my heart severely! He's doing great and his words so sweet. Good JOB, Mama.

Love love love everything about this! Thanks for showing us that he's every bit as smart as his Bubba.

However, I must ask that the videographer not expect Jamesy to demonstrate his dexterity with sticky foods anymore. NO MORE PANCAKES WITH SYRUP during performances. Thank you

Love the pink and blue onesies, btw.

They are too cute splashing around in their bathing suits. When James puts his tummy on the side and then falls in, I couldn't help but laugh a little. But when he shows his teeth, I busted out laughing. He is too much. He's doing so well! Praise God for answered prayers. Love you all!
