Meet My Extraordinary Kid #YourExtraordinaryKid

Let me tell you about Extraordinary Kid Brooklin, she’s my second of three daughters. From the moment she was born she was making a scene, her deep dimples quickly let us know she was full of personality. When she was toddler she kept us on our toes proving that going form one baby to two was a whole new ball game. She loves to stay busy and can do anything she puts her mind to, she’s a natural at almost anythings she tries. She’s brave and kind and yet not afraid to be who she is. She will melt your heart and make you cry laughing a minute later.

What makes your kid extraordinary isn’t just the big things. It’s the small moments that maybe only you see — and quietly celebrate every day.

Your kid, and every kid, is extraordinary. That’s why today and every day Stanford Children’s Health and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford has been the top-ranked children’s hospital in Northern California for over a decade and they’re celebrating extraordinary kids just like mine.

Stanford Children’s Health is the largest Bay Area healthcare provider with an exclusive focus on children and expectant women. Whether your visit is routine or rare, Stanford Children’s Health is committed to providing extraordinary care for healthier happy lives. To celebrate extraordinary kids and those moments they are inviting everyone to make their own video that celebrates their extraordinary kid. I created a video for Brooklin and just love how it turned out.

What moments do you enjoy most with your extraordinary kid?

Your kid is extraordinary. Show them how much you enjoy every moment together by creating a special video of your own!

Be sure to follow @StanfordChild and Stanford Children’s Health for more about how to take care of your extraordinary kid.

    Awe, your little one is totally extraordinary… I love all the moments with my kids, but what I have noticed is that just by being there, at every swim and soccer practice and game, my kids know I am always there and those memories are awesome

    I love the photo of your daughter with the sun glasses. She is so cute and adorable. I think it so important to tell our kids how much we love them and how important they are.

    My 2nd child is always full of laughs and is unique in every way. He loves to make everyone around him laugh and can have the sweetest heart. I love the small and precious moments with each extraordinary child.
