Our Journey

We decided to create a blog so we could share with family and friends about "our journey". Our son Noah is 4 years old and he is the constant light in our world. He was born with a rare genetic disorder called Rubinstein Taybi Syndrome.. Life has not always been easy but Noah has taught us how to be courageous. We are so proud of his accomplishments the past four years. He is beautiful, funny, courageous and strong. We feel so blessed God has chosen us to raise Noah.. We also hope that new parents receiving an RTS diagnosis will find comfort in our words. Nicholas is the perfect addition to our family. God has once again blessed us with a amazing, beautiful little boy. We are so comforted knowing that Noah now has a little brother. Life is beautiful having these two angels in our world.

Trip To Wisconsin.

Last weekend we headed to the Dells for the RTS reunion. We were also able to see family while we were there. On Thursday we flew into Milwaukee and spent the night with Tom's Grandparents. Noah really bonded with Grandpa and wanted to take his glasses off all the time. We love you Grandma and Grandpa. We had a great time. Then Friday we headed to the water park to meet up with all of Noah's RTS brothers and sisters. There were a lot of kids around Noah's age so it was really great. Noah especially liked little Kayla who is four years old. Kayla helped Noah walk around a lot but this weekend Noah didn't really need any help. He was a walking maniac. I really didn't see him crawl until we got home. We were so proud of him. Nicholas loved the water too. I think his favorite part was relaxing down the lazy river. We spent a lot of time in the hot tub and elevators. Yes I said elevators. Noah is in love with every elevator he sees. He would ride forever if we let him. Noah did tackle one of the slides but really didn't care for it much. I would like to thank Terri for putting together the reunion. It means so much to me to be able to bond with everyone. And to see all of our beautiful children together. The pictures I have posted are mostly of Noah and Nick. The other pictures are with Grandma and Grandpa and our Aunt Kris. It was a fabulous weekend..
















CAN'T WAIT TO SEE ALL OF YOU NEXT YEAR.

What a great trip! I'm so excited that he's decided to walk...what a great experience for him to have Kayla show him how it's done.
