This is a thread just for the good stuff - someone slept when they were supposed to, had 1 less meltdown, is responding to therapy/school/meds/whatever, potty progress, or just happy moments with your LO.<br><br>
Here's mine:<br>
DS1 finally earned enough "stickers" (they use reusable velcro ones for reward points in his class) to participate in the group reward activity yesterday. His SN preschool teacher is wonderful and approaches behavior management in a way that works perfectly for him.<br><br>
He's even helping out at home, a little, and acting out a little less. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
It's such a change from last year (horrible behaviors and awful regular and SN preschool) that I could cry with joy.<br><br>
Yours?

I was in the kitchen with Jet and as I was opening the dishwasher he stepped in the way and got bonked (not too hard) with the door. He looked at me and said "Oww, don't hit people daddy." (something we have been trying to convince him of for a long time). Pretty much every time he hits or pushes somebody we say that, and I guess he finally connected the dots!

My son asked 4 - yep....FOUR!! - "w" questions this weekend. He was sick with fever - so maybe this fuels fever theory. They are all What questions (he does "Where" questions great)...now need to get some of those Why and How questions!<br><br>
"What stuff is that in there?" - in a medicine bag<br>
"What is the dog smelling?" - dog was trying to get some food on the table<br>
"What's that?" - the rolled up paper thing on the doctor's examining table (May not seem like much - but I don't think he has ever asked that!)<br>
"What's up there?" - or something like that - I have it written down!<br><br>
Anything with him being more curious about the world around him makes me more excited!<br><br>
Also saw a workman across the street and said "He is climbing up the ladder...no...he is climbing DOWN the ladder" - I looked out and sure enough, he was climbing down!<br><br><br>
I was very, very happy about each one <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

D is getting an AFO! I think it's really going to make a difference for him. He also tried to say 'camel' today. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

My 2yo daughter is loving her "early intervention" preschool. The gentle transition went well and yesterday she smiled and waved when I picked her up.

We are having a smoking good week here. DS went to visit his new daycare and interacted with the adults and played with children. He even waved and said, "Bye" when it was time to go!!! I took him to a park afterwards to gear down a bit and he followed his brother up a very difficult arched climber and made it to the top all on his own<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I found a place to help dd1.<br><br>
I don't post about her much, because I'm mostly talking about dd2. But, she has anxiety issues and has had severe sleep problems for awhile, which have had enormously negative impact on all of us.<br><br>
Yesterday, I found out that our local children's hospital just opened up a sleep disorders clinic. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> Dd1 is thrilled to know that other kids have these issues, too, and that someone can work with us to help.<br><br>
It feels like such a blessing!!!

This is great!<br><br>
DD just started using her new reverse walker and took to it like she has been doing it her entire life.<br><br>
Today in ST she made the "W" sound and the "D" sound and when she was putting up the felt pieces from a story she actually saw that one was falling off and pressed it to stay on the board!<br><br>
DD has been napping and sleeping so well it has made all the difference in how the entire house/our lives have been.<br><br>
In Music Therapy she has been imitating and making the "GA" sound.

Matthew is starting to write his own name! He is making really nice T's and doing well with M and A as well. Plus, he did great with taking the bus home from school (in PPCD at the elementary)...he has been very anxious about the bus, but he did it today!!!

Tonight I taught DS about "Eskimo kisses" and "butterfly kisses" and he loved them! He kept asking for more. It was so nice that he was affectionate and engaged like that, and making lots of (really close) eye contact. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

YoungSon had a really bad day at school, but his teacher handled it perfectly; realized it was an autism thing, not a behavioral/discipline issue. She diffused the situation and called me, rather than escalating the problem by trying to talk to him at the moment. Three cheers for good teachers!!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

We received the following note in DS1's communication folder today:<br><br>
"At recess he was walking hand-in-hand with a girl from Mrs. X's class."<br><br>
DS1 is mainstreamed for 2 hours/day with an aide in Mrs. X's 1st grade class. Three girls in that class have taken him under their wings and show him how things are done in first grade. DS1 reads to the girls. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Finn has been pulling himself up on EVERYTHING! He also has been attempting to "kick" the soccer ball in the backyard (when I hold his hands and help him move forward). And a couple of days ago in the car, he was copying the "elephant" sounds that his older sister was making. It was very cute.<br><br>
Here is a link to his most recent blog post <i>Sun and Surf</i> and pictures of our trip to Maui.<br><br><a href="http://amazingfinn.com/finnsprogressblog/" target="_blank">http://amazingfinn.com/finnsprogressblog/</a><br><br><a href="http://amazingfinn.com/gallery/february-2008/" target="_blank">http://amazingfinn.com/gallery/february-2008/</a>
