BASEBALL WAS A BLAST!
So how does a kid like me get so lucky? Not only am I getting more and more handsome every day, my natural athletic ability is starting to shine through! Thanks to the Challenge League for making it possible for me and my peeps to hone our skills and have a ton of fun. I met friends of all ages learning to play and I had a "buddy" who played alongside of me and helped me to not feel nervous and stuff. We even got to play with the high school kids AND a game against the firemen. (They need practice).
"Wyatt met a new milestone!!! At 41/2 he can officially catch a ball! This takes not only a huge amount of visual concentration but physical! Wasn't too long ago that he couldn't even bring his hands to midline..so excited for him! "

SCHOOL'S OUT FOR SUMMER. WAIT, WHAT???
"For the 3rd time in the past couple weeks someone I never met came up to us while out and about to say hi to Wyatt! Couple teachers and a fellow coach..I love it. It's a reminder that while he's out at school, baseball, therapy, horseback etc.. not only is other people touching his life but he too is touching other peoples lives. He may not be able to do things others his age are doing but I can't help but feel like he's doing something bigger! I see him spread hope, joy and love and I know that's because others are spreading it on to him. Thank you to all who support Wyatt from the bottom of our hearts!"
So for the summer, I will continue to practice my life skills and prep for the "big time" school. As long as I get some breaks. Those fish won't wait forever, you know!
PRETTY FLY FOR A SMALL GUY - GROWTH UPDATE
My therapy with the horses continues and seems to really help to stretch my legs and hips. I just think they're cool and I like flirting with the ladies there.
"We added an extra day a week of horseback today! Wy is going to start to learn to groom and will gradually learn to tack and lead the ponys:) So good for fine and gross motor skills as well as getting bonding time with the horses!"
SPEECH - THE FINAL FRONTIER. EXPRESS YOURSELF!
This is really important advice from me to you, whether it's with speech or whatever. Chromosome disorders are unique to each kid. There simply is no standard and no average. Don't ever let any doctor or therapist tell you that you won't be able to do something. They don't know it all! Just keep trying! Why not?
This is me wearing my blue ribbon for Chromosome Disorder Research!
Wear That You Care!
