He Sang. He Danced. He Wiggled.

Yo Gabba Gabba Live!

Brandon’s dream come true.  He is crazy for Yo Gabba Gabba.  His five TY beanie baby Yo Gabba Gabba people that our dear friend Angie gave him for his birthday are his favorite toys.  He engages in pretend play with them, which is a struggle for children with autism.  They have a special order they go in.  If you mess up the order when he's not looking, he'll fix it as soon as it catches his eye.  So, when I heard Yo Gabba Gabba was coming to Nashville, I didn’t give it a second thought.  We were determined to go as if our lives depended on it.  Several of my friends heard they were coming to Nashville and sent me messages about it.  I love my friends…so thoughtful!  Thank you!

Brandon did a fabulous job.  He sang. He danced. He wiggled. 

Remember this video I posted, asking you all what he was saying?
You were right on the money with “wiggle.”  He knew exactly what he was doing when that song came on.
Brandon said “Gabba” for the first time.  In fact, he said it several times!  While we were waiting for the show to start, the large screen up on the stage would randomly flash the Yo Gabba Gabba logo.  Each time it did, all the kids yelled “Gabba!”  Brandon was so excited that he joined right in!  There are so many words on the tip of his tongue that are just waiting to come out.  Lately he's said: please, help, up, cookie...and a few more! Here are some more photos from our wonderful night! Music is Awesome!
