When I started this blog my goal was to share Riley and our family's journey. I think that sharing this video is a wonderful way to honor my 100th post. Riley has been learning so much lately and signing more and more spontaneously. He loves music, so circle time at school is his very favorite. Here are a couple of his favorite songs. You will have to forgive the horrible singing in the background.

Since I started this blog I have made new friends and really found a stress reliever for all the craziness of my life. I hope that just one family finds our story when they fine out they are having/had a child with Down syndrome and discovers that everything really will be OK. While there are days of doubt, fear, anxiety and sadness - for every one of those emotions there will be a day of joy, happiness and laughter. You will discover more about yourself, your faith and your friends than you ever thought possible.

This evening the boys were hanging out playing some video games. Riley loves to be right in the middle of everything. He is usually half a step behind his big Bubba Rex.



  1. What a great 100th post!!!

    Riley is quick to do the signs. He doesn't have to think about them at all. He understands and communicates them beautifully!
