A Message from Dillon.

Posted on Tue, Jun 04, 2013

A couple days ago Dillon noticed that I was sitting outside with a book; he decided to join me. He sat in his favorite chair with a book he found in the house, which was the same size as the one I was reading. He said to me, “Mama, read story?” I smiled and looked over at him and asked him to read me a story instead. What he read to me over and over again was exactly what I needed to hear. He said, “I love soooo much!” His message was so sweet and it’s for everyone that’s been in his life helping him. I will definitely watch this video again on the stormy days.

Making music with Slinkies.

Posted on Tue, Jan 29, 2013

One of Dillon’s passions is playing with his Slinky toys. He’s enjoyed them ever since he was 4 years old. As a matter of fact, his first real conversation was with a Slinky! It was hilarious, and also incredibly heartwarming.

Daddy Look! A worm! I got a worm!

Posted on Tue, Sep 18, 2012

During the summer months, my husband will quite frequently take all three boys fishing on his 16 ft. boat. And quite honestly, I don’t know how he does it. Talk about extreme patience! One day I was brave enough to join them and I just watched as he was constantly changing lures, untangling lines, playing referee between our oldest Peyton and our youngest Colin, and making sure Dillon stays in the boat. It’s actually very entertaining.
