The Great Week Comes to an End

Trenton ended his week still having a great week! I love when we have times like this. It has been explained to me that children with autism who have times where they are in a "good period" is when their bodies are allowing them to be oblivious to things that normally set them off. They are able to adjust themselves quite normally. Then out of the blue, all that sensory input from the "good period" hits them and that is when we enter the "bad period". Every TV show, every conversation, every noise, etc enters their bodies at once.
I can't even imagine what that would be like.
Anyway, I love when we are in our good period. Grandma and Grandpa came over today and Trenton was great!


Both boys were wore out! Trenton had been up since 3 AM and Andrew had been up really early with a really early nap too. I am so thankful both boys went to sleep with no problem tonight. I figured since 3 AM was our wake up call this morning, tonight wouldn't take him long to go to sleep.

Great Job on a fantastic week Trenton!! I pray next week is just as good!
Great Job using your words this week Andrew! Keep them coming!
This week Andrew started saying people's names. He said Uncle Brian, Aunt Mindy, Grandpa, Grandma, Nana, Pops (although he always says Pops name) etc. If you have a name, I'm sure he can say it after this week.

When Trenton woke up at 3 AM, it was one of those nights where he was doing some unusual behaviors. He woke up as quiet as can be, crawled out of bed, and started pacing back and forth in his bedroom. He walked out into the house, turning on all the lights, shutting every door, babbling some strange noises, and rearranging all the toys.  Bless your heart Trenton!.
