Someone told me that with autism your lows are lower and your highs are higher. This month I've felt both.
These last few days have been so wonderful and I have felt heaven's help. Elise has sat through sacrament meeting 2 weeks in a row now without having to leave.
In Speech she did awesome! She didn't have any meltdowns. Elise is creating an attachment to her speech therapist and I couldn't be happier. Today when I took her to OT she saw her speech therapist in the waiting room and walked right up to her with a huge smile on her face and great eye contact. The therapist acknowledged her and gave her a hug. For 5 minutes Elise would walk up to her then turn around and walk back by me where it was "safe." She had a smile the whole time and couldn't stop looking at her. I am so glad she is doing so well with her.
Elise loves the wind and it was really windy today. Combine that with jumping and this little girl was happy, happy.
I love to capture these moments because they are very few. I find myself just watching her until the moment has passed. She's much more difficult these days and when I see her do something that makes her happy I know I have to stop what I'm doing and take in that moment because those are the times that help get me through the difficult ones.
She loves the feeling of laying down and moving around. She makes me laugh :)
I LOVE being a mom to my 5 kids; one with special needs. There is no greater joy than being a parent! I love each one individually but this blog will mostly focus on our daughter with special needs and our journey with her. Thanks for reading!
