I have been wanting to blog about this but I didn't want to 'jump the gun' so to speak. Don, myself and Sams pre-school teacher all agreed that we have seen some great changes in Sam in the last month!! I have always believed in miracles - and we have some awesome people actively praying for us and Samuel and what we all go through.
Sam has been very sweet; calm MUCH more often; the rocking has subsided somewhat - it is not every evening; not every morning; and not 5 times a night. Once in a while he will go through a phase but not NEAR the frequency it was for 3++ years.
I started writing this earlier this afternoon and now I am finishing it since the kids are down.....wouldn't you know after I start writing all the GREAT stuff - he starts his behaviors.....mostly with his sister and not getting things the way HE wants them.
I am a little concerned for the summer and being outdoors. We're going to have to prep him when we go out and go for a bike ride around the neighborhood - if he wants to go to the park and we say no he'll just take off - angrily. He did this the other evening and both Don and I were outside with the kids - and it was difficult to catch him - imagine if I'm home alone......So I'm having the Speech-Therapist at the pre-school create a couple social stories we can go over before we go out.
Going to bed - night.
