Meet Isaac

Here's our Isaac,...


Check out that smile,...doesn't he look like he's about to burst out laughing? Our Isaac certainly loves to laugh especially at his big brothers Teddy and Michael. 

 Here's my three guys together,....


Yes,...that is quite an age difference between my three sons,...respectively their ages are: Teddy 23 yrs, Michael 21 yrs, and Isaac 27 months! 

Teddy's the one with the beard, he's a graduate student completing his master's degree in Education and our technical guru-extraordinaire, Michael is a lifeguard and broadcasting major completing his junior year at the university,....while our Isaac is a pre-preschooler just starting classes at a local early intervention center.

My husband Lynn and I have been blessed with 28 years of marriage,....he's a great guy and a great father to our three blessings.

The star of this blog is our Isaac,...he is in the process of being diagnosed for his special needs. His speech delay is quite obvious,....he only has about eleven words he can say and they are rarely used. We're about six weeks in from his first evaluation,...and he's made rapid progress his therapy sessions in learning sign language: eat, drink, more, again, please, ball.

No one will pin down Isaac's other needs,...he apparently is toeing the fine line of apraxia and autism, with some red flags,...not not enough definite proof to offer a clear diagnosis.  

But he's cute,...and his nonverbal communication skills are off the chart,...because he has no difficulty in getting his message across,...whether happy or otherwise!

We're just looking to the future,...because we know his cuteness is not going to be a safeguard foil for his furthered communications with the greater and wider world. 

So that's just a quick peek into this blog,....more later,...but now it's time to get Isaac ready for his third day of class,....this is his first week,...to say the first day didn't go very well would be putting it mildly,...but his teachers assure me a bumpy start is VERY typical,...so we will just take this process one step at a time.....

Until I post again,....may God bless and keep you!
