Bryson is ALMOST two!!!
He loves his bath time- and playing with the bubbles. It's been SO hot this summer- we've had to spend more time inside than I'd like. It's been over 100 degrees almost every day, so we can't hang out with the neighbors on the front lawn as much as we'd like.
* Bryson's speaking in more two to four word utterances, at least that's what we can understand! He's talking all the time now 'I got it', 'Bye bye dada', 'Dada mow', etc. He also tries to carry on a conversation, but we can't figure out what he's saying....yet.
* Bryson loves 1. yard work/mowers, 2. airplanes, 3. trains
* He still loves Elmo, Abby and Cookie Monster
* Bryson wants to 'help' as much as possible, with laundry, vacuuming, yard work and cleaning up.
* He's wearing 2T shirts/shorts and size 7 shoes
* Still in size 5 diapers
* We weighed him the other day, and his his clothes and diaper on- he was 32 lbs
* Bryson is very affectionate- loves to give kisses, hugs and high fives.
* He loves to fold his hands and pray- he especially loves saying 'amen'.
* He still eats like a champ!

It's been a while since I've updated on the business/Speech Pathology front- so here's the short version. I hired an OT and COTA a while back- and we needed more space. So, we moved out into our own office, and have been booming ever since! I love working hand-in-hand with Occupational Therapy. It's been great to mix more sensory into my speech therapy sessions.
We have other sensory bins at the office, but this one is my 1st 'themed' bin!

Excuse the photo quality, I took this photo with my phone! Bryson is IN LOVE with all things yard related. He loves to watch Brandon, the neighbors, strangers, etc. mow, weed, blow and sack grass. Every day, he asks Brandon to mow our yard! If Brandon agrees, he runs to get his mower (in the photo) and will patiently follow Brandon around the entire front and back yard.
It's hard to believe that his second birthday is right around the corner! His speech production has just exploded, making his SLP momma very happy! :) He's starting to count 'one, two, three', referring to everyone (family, neighbors, pets) by name and asking for 'help'.
Today at lunch, when we forgot to pray, he reminded us by putting his hands together, bowing his head and just waiting for us to catch on!
Brandon and I also celebrated our fifth anniversary this weekend! It's been a crazy five years, but I wouldn't change a thing!!!! We went out for a date night last night, and it was great just to 'see' where we started and where we are now.

and then attempting to get the same pose again this year! (It didn't quite play out the way I wanted it to) But, we got a few good photos in either way.........
Yesterday, our office, family and friends all participated in the 'Ready, Set, Run' 5K and Fun Run for the Autism Center of Tulsa. The photo above is from right before the 5K, but we had over 20 people participate! It was a perfect morning- not too hot, not too windy- just plenty of hills on the 5K trail.
My knee has been giving me some trouble, since the week before the cruise. It's finally gotten better with help from an AWESOME chiropractor in town, Dr. Zollner. He's analyzed my stride (while running) and has really helped get rid of the pain and improve my run. I beat my own personal record yesterday, completing the race is 33 minutes and 37 seconds!!
Bryson was a trooper yesterday as well. Brandon pushed him in his stroller through the 5K!
Overall, it was a wonderful day. I'm very thankful for our health, and to have a career that doesn't feel like 'work'.

It's hard to believe that Bryson will be twenty months old tomorrow!! Today, we walked down to the church's on the corner Easter egg hunt, with our neighbors(we count them as friends too!). Even though it had been raining off and on overnight and into the morning, the rain cleared just in time! Bryson had a blast and was a very well behaved little boy. He was able to 'find' plenty of eggs, we all got free Chikfila for lunch, and Bryson got to spend some time jumping in the bouncy castle!
