Ammon Turns Five

Ammon's birthday was yesterday. He still tries to touch the candles instead of blowing them out, but he has made so many improvements this past year. Just this morning when he was out of breakfast cereal he came to me with the bowl and shook in in front of me. As if to say, "Hey my bowl is empty!" It was cute.

This year he has gone from no words to at least a dozen. Maw (Mom), Be Be (Baby) he usually uses this to bring attention to his needs, he's the Be Be. And so far we haven't received calls from school that he has bitten someone. Overall great progress for the little guy.

Happy Birthday Ammon!!! He's very precious!

I just wanted to add that thanks to your show you all are the reason why I discovered my youngest son is autistic and am now able to get him the therapy that he needs and deserves. So thank you!

Please keep up the good work and keep updating your blog because you all give me hope!

Happy Birthday Ammon!!!

Adding on to what April said above, keep writing about your family. I wish I knew people like you wen my kids were little. They are higher on the spectrum, and because of it I missed so many of the signs, and didn't provide them with early intervention. Because your children are so different and at various levels of the Autism Umbella, you have the ability to bring awareness to all.
