Making Macey happy..

This is what we now spend a lot of our day doing. Finding ways to make Macey smile and get excited.

Today we put her on my bed and I put my hands on either side of her. Then we bounced her a little. She loved it. Everyone had to have a turn trying it. It is so cute to watch Parker say, my turn, my turn.

We dance with her, sing her songs and kiss her more than she would like, lol. At least no one can say she is starved for attention.

Parker has been really funny lately. He is obsessed with Macey wearing pajamas. He doesn't want her to wear outfits, he wants her to only wear pajamas. If I put something other then pajamas on her, he wants assurance that she will wear pajamas later. He even carries around her pjs in the morning after I take them off her. Funny guy, he either likes them or he thinks that she'll got to sleep if she's wearing them.

This brings me to the "April is autism awareness month" topic: A lot of people believe that kids with autism can't love, don't have empathy or don't make connections with other people. It's just not true. Parker is a very cuddly, loving guy. He hates Maceys crying but is learning to deal with it. When she isn't crying he wants to hold her and kiss her all the time. He is actually very sweet to her. He has surprised me so much. I am so proud of him. I think she is going to be a positive element in his life, and in all our lives.

April is autism awareness month. I've been thinking about it a lot lately. Parker, as you know, is my sweet little 7 year old with autism. He is who this blog is mostly about. He is such a great boy. He is doing so well in school right now.

This week, spring break, has been fun for him and he doesn't want to go back to school tomorrow. Maybe that's why he's had such a hard time getting to sleep. He has had a hard time most of the week.

His other thing that's been hard is wiping himself, waaaa! I am going to teach him, I swear. The problem is that he keeps trying it on his own and the messes are big. Poor guy, he wants to do it himself but just doesn't have the dexterity for it yet. I think I'm going to start trying to teach him this week but telling him to wait for me so I can help him.

I wish I had a bunch to write about him and autism tonight but I am just too darn tired. I love my boy, that's all I have left to say!

My cuties

We went to the zoo on Friday and I took a couple of pictures there. The other two were Macey with Daddy. He took those. It's been a long week with the kids off but we have had fun at home. Easter was nice and I'm glad to be rid of holidays for a while, lol. I'll post more soon. It's been hard since I'm addicted to Farmville on facebook and Macey likes to be held a lot.
