The monkey started speech therapy last week. We knew we need to start venturing out. He only leaves the house to attend school and that has been about it since the pandemic started early 2019. We knew this change would be difficult for him but we also know this has to be done. He needs…
The monkey has been playing with his communication device. Every now and then, he likes to press a lot of buttons. At first, I didn’t like it. I didn’t want him to feel this is a game. But then I realized how will he be able to learn new words on his own? So, we…
I love you just the way you are.
I love you, just the way you are my monkey. 💙 Source: Different, Not Less
Car Ride Please ❤️
I have mentioned how the monkey has been doing great with his communication device. This video is from last night. He was getting sleepy and car rides help him to relax. I quickly started recording to capture his skills. 😊 My daughter always praises him when he uses his words. ❤️
It’s all in how you look at it.
A few weeks ago, the monkey started bleeding from his mouth. We didn’t know why. We thought a tooth may have fallen off. But after trying to stop the blood to figure out its source, we noticed he had a huge lump on the bottom of his gum. That’s where the blood was coming from….

The monkey started school last week. The day before we had told him: Tomorrow the bus is coming. He kept looking at us but didn’t really pay much attention. That Monday morning, we got him ready. He put on his new shoes, pants, and shirt. He had gotten a haircut the day before. We brushed…
More than enough.
My father had eye surgery this past Tuesday. He had gotten on three car accidents this past year. When we finally brought up that he shouldn’t be driving, that’s when he told us he wasn’t able to see from one eye. He needed cataract surgery. It’s so strange to see my dad at this phase….
This past week I was looking at the camera to make sure the monkey was OK. I was in the next room in a work call. I could hear the TV, but couldn’t see him. He was hiding under the dog’s bed. 🤣
My husband said he needed to go to Home Depot. Then he adds: Let’s take the monkey too. 😳 My heart dropped. Huh? The monkey? Inside? But he’s been doing so so well. He’s been sleeping all night, he listens, he picks up after himself. And he lets us take different routes when driving. We…
