Communicating

So I got a new device that the school is loaning me. It is called a One Step Communicator.

It is a push button device with messages that can be recorded on to it. This device will give me an ACTIVE role in communicating how my day went at school. One of the kids in my class (with the help of my teacher of course) helps record the messages/phrases onto the device. Hopefully this device will encourage for reciprocal conversation between me and my mom and dad. Here is a clip of how it works (I displayed the words that were recorded for me on the video because they are kind of hard to hear):

I have had this device for several weeks and I have caught on pretty quick on what and how I am suppose to use it. My mom is really excited about it and happy that I am able to "communicate" how my day was.

Sleep over

I had my first sleep over on Friday night. My 2 cousins, Luke & Drew, came to my house and spent the night. It was a lot of fun! We played and got to stay up late. I think the best part was watching Luke & Drew play the Wii. The funniest was watching them box. Drew was all over the place and swinging his arms everywhere. Dad had to keep telling them to step back from the tv because they kept getting closer and closer and almost hit the tv a few times. Luckily no harm was done. Then we got to watch a movie and we crashed for the night. I can't wait until we can do it again.

Not to much goin' on

Well I guess I better update since it has been awhile. Not much has been going on with me to report. However, mom and dad have a big chore ahead of them. About a month ago we had a pipe bust in the basement and ruined the wall and carpet. So this past weekend they finally got a start on the project. They removed the dry wall and part of the carpet. Hopefully next weekend they will be able to remove the remaining carpet. We are going to replace the carpet with tile since the basement leaks anyway when it rains hard. This way we do not have to worry about wet carpet anymore. So they are going to have there hands busy for the next several weeks.
Here's the damage

Dad removing the damage
There must be some spots on my camera (I really don't have a polka dot wall)
I also want to remind everybody to keep a few of my friends in their prayer, especially Melaina and Hayden.

When 2 hands aren't enough

I have been a little greedy lately with my toys. Even when we were on vacation I didn't want to share my toys with my cousin Eli. Before if I had a toy in each hand and mom or dad would show me another toy, I would just set down one of the toys in one of my hands and reach for the new toy. But now I I don't want to let go of either of the toys in my hands but I really want the new toy that I see. So here is a clip of what I do now instead.
