A Younger Brother

Every so often I talk to other parents of children with FXS and they ask me when Brother was talking, walking, etc. I honestly don't remember all the details, it was a blur of worry, doctors appointments and therapy most of the time... so I found a couple of movie clips that I thought I would share from when Brother was around 3 - 3 1/2.

You will also see in these clips part of the reason that Bryan and Kelsey hold such a special place in our hearts and always will.

I miss them still.

I am so proud of how far Brother has come despite his struggles.

These clips are actually from a movie I put together for Bryan's 19th birthday gift. I had to record the video on the TV with my digital camera so don't mind the lines and the glare from the window on the TV screen... ya, I know, I am so technologically advanced.

And, yes, my kids all look very much alike when they are young, uncanny actually.

Wow! Bryan is so sweet with brother. And I can't believe how young he and Kelsey both are. What a sweet video.

What strikes me about your video is the excellent eye contact brother makes with you, and the camera, and Bryan. I don't think I even notice how hard eye contact is for my boys, usually, but I never get the interested stares brother is giving you in this video. It's fascinating.
