Sunday & Sleep

Yesterday we played Ring Around the Rosey until we were all dizzy. No joke! Trenton wanted to play off and on all afternoon.  He had a fantastic day yesterday. He was content to play at Nana and Pops all afternoon which is unusual. Nana's house is like home to him and he still can only be there for so long. However, on Sunday he was happy as a lark there!
He had such a good day he let Mommy go to night church!! Mommy was very excited!

Andrew had a big day yesterday as well. He woke up from his nap and did not use his diaper the whole time. Therefore, Mommy put him on the pot and said, "Potty Andrew." A few seconds later, he  peed! Way to go Little A!!!!!!!!

Trenton's sleep is just about as bad as it can get. No improvement at all and he is on two medicines to help this. In the past, he would give me at least one night a week where he would sleep. However, he has not given me that for the past two weeks. In addition, we are back to taking car rides in the middle of the night to meet his sensory needs.  It is truly amazing to me how one's body can go on three hours of sleep a night for an extended period of time. No one would ever know what little sleep he gets in a 24 hour period because he very rarely shows signs of being tired throughout the day. Instead he has a body that keeps going and going and going. Kinda like the Energizer Bunny!

I took Andrew to Wal-Mart one day last week while Trenton was in school. I overheard a conversation from one employee to the other about how much he hates working second shift when he is scheduled because he gets so tired.  The conversation ended how he "catches up" on his sleep on his days off. UGH!!!!!!!!!!!! There is no "catching up" in this household!! 

Trenton's babbling has been very limited the past week.  He is participating very well in his therapies just very quiet. As I type this I am listening to another meltdown free ABA session in our home!! YAY!!!
Twice last week he looked at a picture of me and said, "Mommy" My heart melted both times!


Romans 8:28

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
