Padawan Drew

We've been busy celebrating Drew's 5th Birthday! It's hard to believe that our little boy is now five years old. We celebrated with a family trip to Disney World - even the Grandparents flew to Florida to celebrate the big event.

One of the highlights of our trip was the Jedi Training Academy at Hollywood Studios:

Seriously, how cool is that? Drew's Dad and I both felt such a sense of happiness watching the little guy on stage. Five years ago, as he was diagnosed with profound hearing loss, we had no idea what these five years would bring for him. A few days ago, Drew was standing on a stage, listening to instructions from from his Jedi Master, just like all of his little Padawan friends, without any help. It's truly amazing.

Drew is now obsessed with Star Wars. He woke this morning asking to go to Target and buy a Storm Trooper helmet. Drew used birthday money this weekend to buy two Star Wars Lego sets. It's actually a bit out of control. But watching him become a boy, who's really into Star Wars, is also totally awesome.

Happy 5th Birthday Drew. We hope it's not one that you'll soon forget!

Happy 5th Birthday, Drew! Star Wars is awesome (so say my two boys)! Did you know they sell Storm Trooper shoes? Bought some last night at the shoe store... for both boys. Gotta love these little Jedis!

If anyone knows the parents of "Jonathan" whose precious video of hearing his first sounds was uploaded to You Tube in 2008, would they contact me at The Doctors TV Show in Los Angeles? 323-956-8300
