THE SHADDOX BOYS
Jacob and Elijah Shaddox are brothers. They live with their mom, Mary, who is the writer of this blog. Jacob is 19 and is now four inches taller than his mom! He also has ADHD and gorgeous red hair. He is a freshman at a technical college studying computer maintenance. Elijah is 15! He is in 9th grade and he is not in ROTC at his high school. He also had red hair, but it is lighter and not as thick as his brother's hair. He is hearing impaired(auditory neuropathy) and wears two cochlear implants. He also has tourette syndrome, ADHD, OCD and anxiety! Mary just started her 25th year as a teacher of the deaf. She is also in her last semester of graduate school to be a diagnostician! She will graduate in December of 2015!

Look at My Two Boys!
Look at these two boys. I can't believe how much they have grown. Jacob is 5 feet 8 inches tall and 177 pounds! He is the size of a man! I also think he is so handsome in his uniform. I picked him up from school yesterday early for a doctor's appointment. I forgot he would be in his uniform. He exited the school and started walking towards the car. I wondered WHO was this young man and then realized it was JACOB! Where did this young man come from and where did my little boy go? It is like he just grew up over night! He has matured into a great young man and he is slowly leaving childhood behind. I couldn't be more proud of him!
Elijah still has some growing to do, but he is getting there. This is one of his better pictures! He is doing fairly well in school and it is always a roller coaster ride with him. Thankfully the ride has slowed down a bit for us. Elijah was 4 pounds 9 ounces when he was born, so he has definitely grown since then! I am sure we will have some twists and turns in the future, but we will get through it!
