How sweet is this!!!!

Along with becoming more verbal, he finally will laugh for me. I was making him laugh all day. Sometimes he would laugh so hard, he would start to pucker up to cry. He loves it when you turn your head, look at him, and say hi.

I just have to note that the beautiful orange extension cord on the floor is for his suction machine. When he has a cold we have it plugged in all the time. I have squirted saline up his nose and the suction machine needed to be charged, so he had to wait for me to plug in the machine with saline up his nose, so we don't take any chances when we have to suction him all the time.

He is such a gift to my heart. He is a gift to all of us. I am happy to see he gives his giggles to Mommy and Daddy too!

Oh Jessica,

I am so glad you got this on video and shared it here. He is so full of joy and cuteness. What a blessing he is to me! I just love your little Alex and it is so good to see his progress daily. Your three boys are so precious. I pray for your days to hold many great treasures as you love and care for them.

Love, Laurie in Ca.

I just had to laugh with Alex because his laughter is so infectious. What a dear dear little boy you have. There is nothing quite so enjoyable as the laughter of children. God really blessed you this weekend and your home with laughter. God says, "laughter doeth good like a medicine." Thanks for the medicine today. I pray you will continue to have more reasons for joy every day with you family.

Who would've thought seven months ago that your little guy would be greeting you today with such a healthy, gutsy laugh! God continues to demonstrate His mighty work in Alex!

Laughter is such a celebratory sound. I was watching your video with my little Matt and he started laughing when he heard your Alex laughing - so contagious is your Alex's laugh. I was struck by how your Alex sounds just like Matt. I pray your days are filled with many moments of giggling and laughter!

I absolutely love the video. It is so uplifting and made me smile from ear to ear. I keep all of you in my prayers and thoughts every day and love reading how much Alex is changing daily.

What a wonderful way to start the day-laughing along with your precious baby! Cute video, and cute baby!

I've visited your blog before, and I may have left a comment somewhere here probably as anonymous, which I'm not anymore.

I have several blogs I read and pray for, and I will be praying for your cute, sweet baby as well.

I have found your blog and others while searching for information for my sister. She doesn't have a pc.

Our family was blessed with a beautiful baby boy in 1999 who we later found out has (with my sis's permission) cerebellum hyperplasia.

In 1999, when we searched his diagnosis, the only information we found was on cats who had the same diagnosis. There was little information then compared to now, but it's still very limited of what I do find.

Thank you for sharing Alex, his diagnosis, and your journey with such a special, beautiful baby. All your boys are precious!
