Cole had a good Christmas. He enjoyed giving presents to his Mema and Granddaddy Thomas.
He hugged everyone from Granny to Nana to Papaw.

He has made so much progress over the last few months. His vocabulary has increase ten fold and he talks in short sentences. He is learning everyday.

He plays with his little brother like any other little boy. They are quite a lively pair. His older sister, Erin, is constantly playing the little mother telling them what they can and can't do. She should mind as well as she expects Cole and Cale too.

His Nana and Papaw left early Christmas afternoon to visit Kirk's parents in North Carolina.
Cole and Cale wave bye-bye as Barbara and Kirk walked to their car. Cole continued to tell them bye, calling their names until they pulled out on to the road.

The children received many toys but seemed to want to play with the $2.00 ball. Cole was throwing the ball with quite good coordination. Hitting the outstretched arms of his Mema and Granddaddy Thomas with amazing accuracy and just the right amount of speed. He would then stretch out his arms and catch the ball. Catching the ball is something he did not do consistently just a few weeks ago. It is a marked improvement in his hand-eye coordination.

I know that every grandparent thinks they have the most special grandchildren, Marcia and I are no different. All ours are special, but you have to meet Cole, even if you do not know about his disorder you will find his smile infects you will hope and lifts your spirits.

Cole's future looks brighter, but we continue to support FRAXA in their attempt to meet the Doris Buffet Challenge. Ms. Buffet will match $500,000.00 if FRAXA can raise another $500,000.00 by Jan. 31, 2011.

Consider FRAXA.0rg or Easter Seals as you make your year end donations.
