One of the biggest cons about spending a year away from home was missing Brayden’s second year of life. I have been so lucky though, as Alisa and my Mom doing an amazing job at keeping me updated and involved in Bray’s life. I receive weekly videos of him gabbing to ‘Tia’ and showing me his toys. The photos and videos are bitter sweet – while receiving them often make my week, I can’t help from crying whenever he kisses the camera or says a new word! I miss him terribly. He is becoming such a big boy… he walks and talks now…he’s into cars, dinosaurs, puts ketchup on everything and loves FRENCH FRIES!!!! We are obviously related!
And this week I got the greatest news… he said my name! While visiting Kayla, he walked over to a photo of the three of us, pointed at me and said “Tia”!
