A special salute to all the special needs moms who sacrifice so much for their children!
I had the pleasure of spending my day with my two earthly blessings and my heavenly blessing was in my mind all day.
I had the pleasure of having lunch with two of the women who have influenced me the most in my life...
Mom- Thanks for being one of the best influences in my life. You are my rock in this life. We would not be where we are today, if it wasn't for you! You have helped the boys and I with absolutely everything. We wouldn't be what we are today if it wasn't for your selfless love, caring, and devotion to us. You have seen me at my worst and yet you show me endless love by picking me up off my feet.
This morning before the boys and I left for church, I showed them a picture of our church and I said, "It's time for church!" Trenton grabs his things and goes to the door. Andrew repeatedly said church over and over.
When we were in the car backing out of the driveway, Andrew was smiling great big saying, "Church!" over and over.
I said, "Yes Andrew we are going to church."
Andrew looks at our front porch and sees Daddy.
Andrew says, "Church. Church. Daddy. Church."
I looked at Andrew and said, "Daddy doesn't want to go to church."
Andrew looked at me, smiled and said, "Mommy. Trenton. Church."
Mommy said, "Yes Andrew, the three of us are going to church."
Andrew says, "Nana. Grandma Great. Uncle Brian." Then he smiles and says. "church" numerous upon numerous times until we arrived at church.
The cute thing was he was naming names of the people that he sits by at church. He was so happy to be going to church. I think I heard church 50 plus times before we arrived. I love it!!! The sad thing, this is one of Andrew's repetitive behaviors is repeating the same word over and over. Since he is able to vocalize he does a lot of vocal stimming and vocal repetitive behaviors.
Also during church Andrew did the cutest things. During communion, he got a glimpse of Grandma Great. While everyone else was quiet, Andrew was saying, "Grandma Great" repeatedly! It was so cute!!
