My best friend Brooklyn and his team presented me with my very own jersey & hat. And the best part of all… they invited me to be part of their team!!
Hey Guys! Well- I’m back. I know it’s been a while but I was having a few little challenges since the beginning of this year. But don’t worry, my mommy, daddy and my teachers have really been working with me and I’m doing great!! After my visit to the hospital at the end of January, my doctors said I needed to gain weight or I might have to get a feeding tube put into my stomach. I wasn’t too excited about that so I have been really trying to eat more. And guess what – it worked!! I now weigh almost 30 pounds AND I grew enough that I am getting all new braces this week!! But the best news of all is …. starting this week-end I’m gonna be on a baseball team with some of my best buddies!! I’m so excited! .. I have been practicing with my daddy everyday, and I am eating even more food cause I want to get strong like my friends so that I can hit the ball really far. Well, I’ll get back with you after this week-end but I gotta go for now. Time to practice ball with my dad!
Oh wait! – Look at what I got to do! I was so proud of myself and happy that I got to walk like my friends.
I hope everyone had a great Christmas!! I sure did! Now that the holidays are over I’m back at school. I don’t mind cause I really like my school. I have the best teachers and some really good friends. I kinda have been missing school though cause of ear infections, eye infections… you know – the usual kid stuff. Anyway, I hope I get all better soon and don’t have to miss anymore school – cause I love to be there! Hey – check out the video of me driving my new jeep all by myself. Who said I’d never move my legs?!! It’s my Christmas miracle!

MY SCHOOL PICTURE FROM ST. LILLIAN’S ACADEMY – Sept. 2012
I can’t believe my “Big Day” is finally here!! Well, it will be this Saturday. That’s the day that LSU plays South Carolina and I’m gonna march down Victory Hill with the Golden Band from TigerLand!! I know a lot of people have been asking about what’s going to happen – so here’s the schedule best as I know it. – My mom, dad & I will meet the band at the band hall and march with them down Victory Hill. That should take place somewhere around 5pm. Then we will all go into the PMAC where the band always plays for a little while. After that we are invited to go with the band into Tiger Stadium and sit with them for the game!! I have been so excited this past month that I can hardly stand it!! Hope to see you there! and GEAUX TIGERS!!
Since I love music so much, Mommy & Daddy took me to a jazz brunch for my birthday.
Everyone says they can’t believe I’m already 5 years old. Guess that means I must be really growing up. I’ve even started to out-grow some of my size 3 clothes!! My mommy got me a spider-man cookie cake for my birthday. It was just what I wanted!! I was so glad I got to celebrate my birthday at home and not in the hospital. What a blessing!! … Well – I’ll be starting school the last week of August so I guess I’ll be talking to you once I get adjusted to my new routine. I’ll be sure to keep you posted on my school year… Oh and mark your calendars for October 13th. That’s when I’ll be leading the LSU Marching Band down Victory Hill! We’ll let you know more details about that later.
