Merry Christms and Happy New Year!


Boaz Woodie

Boaz is now three years old.  Can you believe that? He is working really hard in his therapies. Last year he was using a walker to get around and this year he is learning to climb stairs! He is also working really hard on talking. He can say a handful of words and can understand many more.

Boaz can also say and sign the answers to the first three questions of the First Catechism! 
1. Who made you? 
God made me.  
2. What else did God make?
God made all things
3. Why did God make you and all things?
For his glory. 

We are very proud of him!  

Emory Baxter

Emory is doing really well!  He is growing big and strong. He is really great with his brothers and loves to help take care of them. Emory knows most of the ABC's and can count to ten (with the exception of seven sometimes!). 

He can also answer the first five questions of the First Catechism! 
1. Who made you? God made me. 
2. What else did God make? God made all things. 
3. Why did God make you and all things? For His glory. 
4. How can you glorify God? By loving and obeying Him. 
5. Why are you to glorify God? Because He made me and takes care of me. 

Greyson Elliot 

Greyson Elliot Corbitt was born May 4, 2014.  He was born with Down syndrome and Bilateral Club Feet, though this was not a surprise to us. After he was born, he had fluid in his lungs so he was taken to the NICU. There he was diagnoised with Pulmonary Hypertension. He was put on oxygen to treat it. He spent a total of 33 days in the NICU. He was sent home with oxygen and continued to use oxygen for 2 months.

Once he was home, we started treating his Bilateral Club Feet. He had a short series of casts and then a small procedure to loosen his Achilles Tendon. He now wears a set of boots and bars while he sleeps at nighttime.

Grey is working hard in therapy. He is working really hard on stregthening his muscels and holding his head up.  He goes to physical therapy twice a week and occupational therapy twice a month (soon to be once a week). He will be starting speech therapy soon. He loves each of his therapists very much, as do we.  

Meet Nate

Nate is our new cat!  He is awesome with the boys! We really couldn't ask for a better cat. He knows how to be gentle with Greyson and can be rough with the boys when they want to play! 

Catechism is a classic form of teaching through question and answer. 

We hope you had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
