Brendan started a new school

Well my son always amazes me and he has done so yet again. He transitioned perfectly. He was so excited to go to a new school and start first grade. He was all smiles as you can see from the picture. He did not cry, whine, or have any anxiety. His father and I brought him for his first day because the school was not exactly ready or prepared for these students just days before school started. That could be a whole other post!! He just wanted a hug and off he went with a new PT down the hall to use the restroom. I am so proud of him.

He had a fun but difficult summer. He had hip surgery and a heart procedure and yet he takes everything in stride and still exubes happiness and joy. He has made a friend already, Evan. He loves Evan. Evan is wheelchair bound and doesn't speak but Brendan took to him instantly. He wants to stand in his stander next to Evan, sit next to Evan and he is constantly watching out for him. Sometimes Evan's head falls down and Brendan yells to his teacher's "Fix Evans head!!". He is the sweetest little boy. I think he will make a good husband one out ladies!! :)

I wish we had a break from procedures but that never happens..Botox is on for the 5th of October, I am scheduling for him to see a new professional to assess his vision in Boston, and trying to figure out how to get him assessed for a rather new lasor treatment for tissue release. There is alway something to do and research and debate on doing but I will continue to do everything I can for my little boy. He deserves that and so much more.

Hi Steph! So glad to hear Brendan is doing so well in first grade! Malayna started Kindergarten and loves it too. Brendan is an AMAZING little boy in so many regards. He will make a wonderful husband to some lucky lady some day! Maybe he and Malayna can hook up sometime! Good luck with the botox and other appointments.

Hey there Steph. Remember me for the days at BBC. I linked over her from Sheila website for Malayna, and I am so glad to see that Brendan is doing so well. He has grown so much, and so has his sisters (especially the baby, wow)! As Emma has SQCP too, he has always been an inspiration to us. I missed hearing about him. Emma is 6 now, and I would love to share her website with you. I just need your e-mail address so I can invite you. Good luck with all the botox and other happenings. Take good care. So glad I found your blog.

we have had such a hard time with the bus company too! what a nightmare!!!

I about cried when I saw that Brendan had taken to Evan, who is wheelchair bound, non verbal, and apparently some head control issues, much like my LJ. I was so worried that LJ would be ignored by the other kids but there was a darling boy in a walker that has taken to LJ.

I think I'm on your BBC boards! My name is LilMamaStar, I think, but it's been awhile since I've been on. Thanks for updating! he's is such a cutie!!

Hi girls!!! I really don't have this whole blog thing figured out and I don't know how to respond to each of you individually. If someone can please help me that would be great! I also don't really know how to follow people. I will leave my email here so we can keep in touch!
