Easter was VERY nice here. About 88 degrees and nice and warm. We will be posting a small video on my other blog of the Easter egg hunt. But I also didn't get actual pictures. But it was a good day and it was nice to have it together. Thanks to Dallas for the wonderful day!!

You Are Big Bird

Talented, smart, and friendly... you're also one of the sanest people around.

You are usually feeling: Happy. From riding a unicycle to writing poetry, you have plenty of hobbies to keep you busy.

You are famous for: Being a friend to everyone. Even the grumpiest person gets along with you.

How you life your life: Joyfully. "Super. Duper. Flooper."

Guess that throws my " borderline personality" out the window huh!! I love being "sane"!!!

A new book!

I "ordered" a book through the Emily Anderson Center here in Phoenix. I wanted to attend a conference on this book. It was put on by the FBC. Taking it one chapter at at time and do the small activity suggestions at the end of each chapter. It is a great book and anyone that feels they want to learn about how people "live" with a child that has a disability I would recommend it. It is VERY helpful in understanding why we feel the way we do. Maybe it will give people some insight into who I am.

Anyway, I just finished Chapter one and the activity it has you do is list five things that your child has done this week that made you smile. So I thought I would list them here.
1. Just saying his name makes me smile. Honestly, I can't go a day or a minute when I am with him and I can't help but smile when he is there.
2. Watching him try REALLY hard to change the DVD's himself. He doesn't get them in the "hole" but he tries so hard and is so proud when he changes it.
3. When Barney pops up on the screen he gasps. Then he crawls over and gasps either at my feet or at my bed or wherever I am. It's like he is telling me look mom .. its Barney. I have to say Is that Barney Tyler before he will go back to the movie.
4. Swimming. Although he was pretty crabby that day he was still oh so cute!!
5. Standing in his room after I get home from work to check if he is still breathing. Just standing there watching him. He is the sweetest most amazing little boy.

The Stacker!

Monkey's last PT said he couldn't stack.. We fired her!! Not just for that reason but she didn't think he would ever walk and she wasn't what we wanted for Monkey. So we have been on our own for the last month. With a big dose of independence being delivered and lots of play we are getting MUCH better.

But he does stack.... on the lights outside!!!! Go Monkey!

Random pictures

So Monkey and I have been sick. I should have known that we were going to get sick. Tuesday I thought I was going to die. I chalked it up to anxiety but for 2 more days I had a tummy ache...

Anyway... here is some pictures of Monkey enjoying the weather before we made it under the weather

This is MONKEY after his play group!! He always does a craft and it always involves paint. He loves it though. So that is all that matters. We always stop an get a burger for lunch that day to so he has Ketchup!! (His fav)0n his face.
Monkey is in LOVE with Bubbles so we have to blow them a million times and the WHOLE time we are out there! He also plays with Paint while we are out there. He thinks the paint is hair gel and always puts it in his hair. He always gets so dirty and has so much fun. He is the best and cutest little boy in all of Arizona and possibly the world ( If I do say so myself.) My favorite... is his little feet.. Dad took these as we were all ready for bed. What cute little man!!!!
