    What a sweet video! I love when people communicate with their hearts instead of their mouths. Sometimes it just means so much more. This morning my middle schooler got “mouthy” before we went off to school and we were both a little frustated with each other. My little prayer was answered when he called me to bring a paper up to the school and I had the opportunity to hug him and tell him how awesome I believe that he is. The way he looked at me and hugged me meant more than words can say. I love the way you LOVE your kids. Wish the whole world could be that way.

  3. He is SO SWEET! I loved the video and seeing all of your boys… clearly they are all so loved!

    I do have one question for you though… how do you get everything done in a day?

  9. Gussy says:

    morning Lisa! thank you for sharing him with us — he’s so sweet and it’s wonderful to “meet” him. xoxo

  10. Carmen says:

    Loved your video- hes so sweet and full of life! Just wondering if you sign with him at all. We started signing with our little guy Sam (who has down Syndrome) when he was about 9 months old. We still laugh that his his first word (while sitting in his high chair) was “mo” while he signed the word more. And he STILL loves to eat!
    Thanks for all your inspiration!

    P.S. hubby got the hint for our silver anniversary- love my word of the year necklace!

  47. Laurie says:

    Super sweet video!! David is precious.

  48. MarieP says:

    Hi, Lisa! Just wondered if David is working with a speech-language pathologist? We work with kids who are non-verbal, not just kids who need a little help saying “r” or remembering which pronoun to use. Such a sweet little guy and you’re obviously doing great with him but he might have even more to communicate and an SLP might be able to help him get even more of his message across. Regardless, he’s a charmer!

  49. Iowamom says:

    What a cutie! Thank you for sharing!

  50. kristen says:

    He is precious beyond words.

  51. Daniele says:

    Lisa- I, too am an SLP, and I am sure that David is hard at work building his communication system. I love the fact that you focus on what David CAN DO! What a great video. Thanks for sharing and making me smile! I know that you are counting your blessings and smiling a lot!

  52. erin says:

    you must be very proud of david- looks like he does great– really, excellent!!

  53. Pam Godwin says:

    How precious…God’s gift!!

  54. Sharrin says:

    Thanks for letting us get to know David! You all seem to have a joy for life that is contagious. Thank you for sharing that with your blog fans.

    p.s. Matty looks awesome in his glasses – my son just got similar ones!

  55. angie says:

    I just love you & your family! : )

  56. thank you for sharing your video! i have been a reader of your blog for quite some time, but i guess i didn’t realize that david couldn’t speak. he seems like a very amazing little guy!

  57. Katie says:

    thank you so much for sharing David (and your entire family) with us here on your blog. Precious video!

  58. Kelly says:

    Thanks for sharing! I am really loving the answering questions video.

    We have a special needs child and shealso communicates differently. It is certainly a journey…but I would not have it any other way.

    Does David have a syndrome? Our daughter has Rubinstein Taybi Syndrome.

    Much love to you…and to precious David.

    What a doll! This video made me cry (happy tears), it’s so cute!

    My question would have to be: How do you do it? 2 active boys, a business, a house that looks amazing, plus who knows what else and you’re always smiling in pictures and sounding positive and energetic. What’s your secret? :)

  69. Nina says:

    a precious gift given to a precious mom.

  72. Teresa says:

    Hi Lisa!

    What camera do you use? How do you get you’re photographs to look so cool? Could you make a video showing us the program you use and how to transform ordinary pictures?

    Thank you!

  73. Jill (lune) says:

    Hey Lisa, what a beautiful video – so cute. I have the privilege of spending my mornings with kids who communicate in different ways – and it’s not hard once you get to know them that they have very strong personalities, likes, dislikes, and loves just like all of us. David looks like a very happy boy, and he’s so lucky to have such a loving mommy – you guys are so great. So glad to get to know you.

    love Jill

  74. Gaye says:

    Just recently discovered your blog and really enjoying your life and jewellery. I cannot see the video or even a link for the video – has it been removed? Just curious as I am a little behind as I have been away!

  75. Dee says:


    You have a beautiful family. And I love your style and all the little fashion tips. :)

  76. So sweet! I loved watching your video and how you just take life in stride and go with the punches. He seems like such a sweet little guy. After losing our son, Ethan, to cancer at just 4 1/2, I appreciate everything in life just so much more. May GOD bless your family!

  77. Melissa Sweet says:

    Both of your boys are so beautiful! Thanks for sharing such a great video!

  78. Pam Harris says:

    Hi, my son Josh has RTS. He is 22 years old now. He has learned to use a communication app called Proloquo2Go on his iPad. If you are interested in more information, please email me.
