Happy 2nd Birthday Knox!


My sweetie pie, Knox, turned 2 this last weekend!

He stared at his cupcake…

And then tried a little bit of the sweet stuff…


We had lots of fun celebrating with family.

He shares a birthday with his Great-Grandmother.

He turned 2 and she turned 83…

Then just a couple of days later he got his smart new glasses…

It is so hard to get good photos of my little guy!

His glasses are so thick that there’s almost always a glare or reflection of some kind that ruins it.
But I did manage to get one that turned out super cute…

We will be attending the Cockayne Syndrome Family Conference in San Diego in just a few days. In addition to meeting other families who have children with CS, we’ll be meeting with researchers, talking with doctors, and learning more about what this journey holds for us.

And I was so excited about showing you my Egyptian ATCs and what did I do?

I mailed them off and forgot to take photos!  I was stressed about making the deadline (because I might’ve missed the last deadline I signed up for…by a little bit…sort of… ok, yes I did) and completely forgot to take the pictures. This was the postcard I based the design on…

I think my brain is already in vacation mode!

I’ll be taking a break from blogging until August.

Hope to see you when I get back!
