Happy 3rd Birthday Bruiser

The birthday of your own child should fill you with happiness and make you remember fondly the memories of the occasion. However for me, the anniversary of Bruiser’s birthday brings back memories I can’t shut out or ever forget however much I try.

But what a difference 3 years can make. With each passing year its getting easier to smile and hold back the tears. With each birthday, there are more and more happy memories of the day been created.

Bruiser has come a long way from his birthday to reach today. Its been and still is a very rocky road. But he has accomplished so much already. This last year has been phenomenal.  A year ago, Bruiser lived in an non-communicating, frustrating, quiet world. He now uses Makaton to communicate in every aspect of his life. Its no longer as frustrating. He’s even started using a few words and sounds again.

These are some of my favorite memories from the last 3 years.

I wonder what adventures lie in store for Bruiser in his 4th year?
