Buell continued on the post: "Tonight, we started watching Rudolph and Jaxon became very talkative with mummy.

"Lots of snuggling, lots of talking, and he's getting better each day with interacting and communicating with us, and now even playing with us. More big milestones for our little guy! ‪#‎JaxonStrong‬"
