Talking

Looking Back

The other night I found myself looking back into past. I watched videos of the kids from 2-3 years ago and for it were not for the videos I don’t think I could recall those days.  As I thought about the joyous hell that we were going through at that time, I thought, “Wait, we are still going through this… Read more →

What does the cat say?

Cohen’s progression goes in spurts.  The other night we were looking at a book called Brown Bear Brown Bear.  This was the 2nd or 3rd night in a row that we had looked at it.  There are definitely certain pictures that he knows and will respond to such as the Cat and the Dog.  I would ask him, what does… Read more →
