Changes to the channel/blog...




Basically, for the sake of affording my son more privacy as he gets older, I will be removing any video from my youtube channel (and hence, this blog) that has his face visible in it. The blog posts will remain, and all topics are easily accessible from the sidebar in the "categories" section.

If there's further information from a particular video you need, please either comment on the corresponding blog post with your question, or email me at allforbu@gmail.com, and I'll do my best to answer your question with updated information. Thank you all for understanding and as always, thank you for watching and following our journey.

Year Three, Week 40 (144th Weekly Video!)

THREE YEARS AGO

TWO YEARS AGO

ONE YEAR AGO


In this video:
*Huge accidental BONK to the nose/head
*urine collection/test postponed
*Anne Connoly blood test collected and sent out
*requested diaper changes lately
*knows SO MANY signs!
*didn't want to go to ABA clinic, ended up leaving early
*climbed on the desk again, for the first time in a long time
*not very interested in peaches, but eating pears and apples
*got the go-ahead from his speech therapist to set up his communication device



I forgot to mention in the video (because I discovered it after the fact) that apparently, whenever Bu's bottle of Biotin ran out, I never replaced it. Oops! I couldn't even tell you when in the last month that happened, but he's been doing so well lately, I don't want to put it back in rotation until we see the specialist again and determine whether he really NEEDS it.
