Flowers. 💙❤️

The monkey’s latest fascination. Purple and blue flowers. He stares at them for hours on end. You know the saying, ‘Stop and smell the roses”? He’s doing exactly that. ❤️

Strengthen us.

We’ve been doing a lot of things to the house lately. I’ve even started making some small changes. Buying spring decorations, putting new pictures, new throw pillows, some different curtains. The house looks a little bit brighter, livelier, happier. My husband says it’s feels as if I’m nesting, that urge to clean when one is…

Our session.

Yesterday our in-home trainer came over for our session. She’s is so patient and loving towards our monkey. She’s been with us for a while and has become part of our family. ❤️ The monkey has been communicating so much lately. It’s great to see how his communication has progressed. We were stuck for suck…

Baby steps.💙

Yesterday morning, the monkey woke up full of mosquito bites on his legs and arms. Since yesterday I’ve been putting anti-inch cream all over him. Because of his OCD, he will scratch so much until blood comes out. He doesn’t have the control to stop. Anti-inch cream helps him with this. The problem is that…

You guys are doing a great job!

I’m out of town this week in a conference and of course it’s hard since this means extra work on the family. I called my daughter yesterday to see who was going to pick up the monkey and she tells me, “Mom we got this. Don’t worry.” And then last night I get this text…

Bouncy house.

My sister had a house warming party today and she invited a lot of people. We arrived early because I was going to help with the set up. We also arrived early because I knew this would be difficult for my son. My sister had a bouncy house. We haven’t been to a party with…

My son is my hero. 💙

We are getting ready for this Friday’s hospital visit. This past Monday, we had a doctor’s appointment with my son’s pediatrician. He needed to fill out an evaluation form, basically saying the monkey is fit to be sedated. When the doctor arrived, my son started getting anxious. He knew what to expect and it was…

Wow.

Now that we are picking up the monkey from his therapies, we get to sit on the other side of the glass and watch him. And today is the first time we have seen him use the communication app for a purpose. He typically clicks at random buttons but it looks like this time, it…

We can keep going. ❤️

We went to Sam’s today to buy some pool supplies. While we are looking at the chlorine tablets, the monkey started to get out of the shopping cart. We didn’t notice that on top of the pool supplies was a playground set. He was trying to get up there and play. He was getting fussy…

Headphones. ❤️

We’ve tried before putting headphones on. He never wanted anything on his head. And today, breakthrough. Below is a post from my husband’s personal Facebook page. Giant baby steps. ❤️❤️❤️
