Happy Birthday!! The Big 3!


Today is Jameson’s third birthday, and I cannot believe how fast time passes! I also can’t believe that it hasn’t even been a year since his last surgery, it feels like forever ago.  It is truly amazing the ability children have to bounce back and move on.  I know that Jameson’s journey will shape the man he will become, but I love watching him embrace the fact that at heart he is simply a three year old little boy who loves life, his family, and his dog 🙂

This year will be a big year for Jameson.  We have moved and settled into our new home in San Antonio; he has a lot of new people on his team now! And we are excited about what they have to offer him.

Today he started PreK-3! He goes from 7:30am-10:30am, and he will get speech therapy there twice a week (in addition to starting private speech therapy twice a week in the afternoons).  He had a fantastic day! It was rough at first, he wasn’t too happy, but when we brought birthday cupcakes to his class at 10:00 his teachers said he warmed right up and was laughing and playing with the other boys and participated in the classroom activities!

Next week he will start occupational therapy once a week as well.  Needless to say, he will be busy; we will be busy.  It seems as though the first year of his life we were busy with doctor appointment after doctor appointment.  Now, we are focusing our efforts on getting him up to speed with his peers as he transitions from toddler to boy. (Not that we weren’t before, he’s just at the point where we can do a little more without taking away ALL of his boyhood, we really believe the most important thing is for Jameson to be a child as much as possible, and too many appointments can take away from that). We also have an appointment with a developmental pediatrician next week, a sleep study on the 19th (FINALLY!!), and an appointment with audiology at the end of the month!

So, Happy Birthday little man!!! I can’t wait to see what you accomplish this year!

  1. Wishing your little boy all the love in the world. I love the updates and send him every happiness, joy and courage for his 3rd birthday. Moments to be cherished. God bless xxx

  2. Hi There,

    Your blog came across my radar a few months ago and really tugged at my heart strings as it reminded me that the parenting journey is such a challenging path under the best of circumstances, and you really seem to be holding it altogether amazingly despite Jameson’s health struggles, and he is such a happy looking boy (I’m sure as a result of such a loving family).

    Anyway, your story reached us all the way down here in Melbourne, Australia where I live with my husband and our toddler, Alexander. I just received an email update that it is Jameson’s birthday and we’d love to send him a postcard from Oz (from my son of course! Although I’ll be doing the writing!)

    If you’d be willing to let us send him a card, could you email me a mailing address that I can send it to? And I’ll send it off straight away so it gets there soon.

    And thanks for the blog, it’s great to see more awareness of the struggles some kids have to go through, and hopefully the result will be plenty of support for your family.

    Best wishes,

    Callie Avery (and little Alexander)
