A Floor Full Of Duplo’s And A Heart Full Of Joy

My wife is in Italy this week with her mom for a fun-mother-daughter-vacation-before-we-have-our-second-child-trip which means Noah and I are home alone! She’s only been gone for a few days (she left Saturday) and we  miss her like crazy! But I’m  glad she’s getting a chance to spend some quality time with her mom this week! [Read More…]…

6 Cute Pictures Of My Kid Eating Eggo Waffles

This morning I shared the following picture on our Facebook page and within a few hours it had received over 2 thousand likes! I mean sure, he’s a cute kid, but over 2 thousand likes for a picture of a kid eating a waffle?!? 🙂

There’s Something Typical About Waffles That I Really Love

I love snapping pictures of Noah doing cute, typical things. When I first learned that Noah was born with Down syndrome I worried about how different Noah would be than typical kids, and that scared me. It turns out that raising a child with Down syndrome is much more normal than I would have ever imagined.

A Weekend Of Relaxation At The JW Marriott Hill Country Resort

This weekend we went to one of our favorite hotels for a little rest and relaxation, the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country. It doesn’t matter if you have a child with special needs, or a typical child, this hotel has you covered!

There isn’t much to today’s video because I wanted to enjoy my time with Noah and my wife and not be worrying about trying to take a video. Not to mention this hotel has a fantastic waterpark (complete with a lazy river!) built in so I left my phone / video camera in the hotel most of the time and enjoyed the fun! (But I hope you still enjoyed seeing him splash around in the kiddy pool!)

If you’re looking for a vacation that your entire family can enjoy, this is your place. It’s hard to believe this place is so close to our house (San Antonio is about a four hour drive from Dallas.)  There’s so much to do at the JW Marriott that you feel like you’re at a tropical oasis, not a mere four hours from the hustle and bustle of Dallas!

That Time I Went To Harlem To Shoot A Harlem Shake Video…With My Two Year Old.

I’ve seriously have one of the best jobs in the entire world!

I work with some of the most fun people in the world. I get a chance to spend my days making an impact in the lives of others. My co-workers (who are also some of my closest friends) welcome Noah and love on him as if he was one of their own. And we have a very fun and (sometimes extremely) competitive work atmosphere.
