Flashback Friday: Annie’s First Year

It’s so hard to believe it, but this tiny baby will be five years old next week. If you can’t see the video above, click here. So precious then, more precious to me now.

James Nose

James has reached one of my favorite developmental stages: identifying things. He will respond to almost any “Where is X” question by touching or pointing to the object.

“This Is What I Can Do”

The National Brain Tumor Society was the charity that was nearest and dearest to Jackie. She was an amazing advocate for them, raising so much money that they named a research chair in her honor. The first time the San Francisco Bay Area branch of the Brain Tumor Society asked Jackie to speak was 2010,…
