Happy Birthday Baylor

On Saturday afternoon, Baylor enjoyed a fun birthday party celebrating his fourth birthday!

Baylor loved his balloons!

It was a Yo Gabba Gabba theme and Grobee is one of Baylor's favorite characters.  Baylor is wearing his special birthday shirt as well as his new ID bracelet. Katy ordered it from a site that offers this service for children with autism or other special needs.  Autistic children are known for being Wanderers and this bracelet gives Baylor's information in case he should get away from Ben or Katy.   It gives us all peace of mind.

Here is my son, Ben, with Baylor. Baylor was excited to get his Max and Ruby DVDs and a big Max bunny that he can sleep with at night.

And since Baylor loves balloons, Katy filled the basement with balloons for Baylor to enjoy on Sunday morning. No big sister was there to spoil his fun as she was at Nana's house.

We could tell a big difference in Baylor at his birthday party this year versus his three year old party. He was much more engaged and enjoyed his gifts.  He is still not very verbal but we think he will get there!  Thanks again to all of you who have prayed for our sweet boy! He is such a blessing to our family.

And here we are four years ago!! Time does fly by...enjoy those little ones while they are little!

Thank you for sharing Baylor's bdy photos with us. I can tell he is engaged and smiling big this year. I continue to remember he and his parents in prayer. What a great idea about the bracelet. God bless your day.

Happy birthday to your sweet grandson. It's amazing how far we have gone with autism. I had a little boy in my before and after school program that just stole all our hearts. He's very bright and doing well socially. Every now and then he would fire us but we knew he didn't mean it.

He is looking so excited to have these birthday gifts!! Well, kiddos always love gifts. On my daughter’s 4th birthday he hosted a grand party at the local party space rentals in Brooklyn. She got so many gifts from her preschool friends and was really happy to have them!
