None At All

Today is one of those days when I feel absolutely no motivation to do much of anything.  Little Prince got me up way too early and I am functioning on a combination of willpower and coffee.  And he seems to getting by on pure whine power.  Sometimes autism sucks.  Good this his cranky little hiney is cute!!

I love watching my boy explore things. Watching as he investigates how things work, what fits inside of what, how things fall.  Really it is scientific exploration in his little world and his joy in the whole thing makes me smile.  He was in his high chair today, eating snacks and playing with the little toys his sisters had brought him and I was caught for a moment just watching as he played, his quiet investigation warmed my heart.  I LOVE this boy.

Little Prince is a little overwhelmed by the boxes and chaos that comes with preparations for our move. He chooses to spend a lot of his time in his room.  Poor little peanut.

Other than his obvious discomfort, things are going well.  I don't have a lot things left to do.  It feels great to be on top of things.  I even had my hair cut!!  I still don't know what color I want it to be.

The girls are completely excited by the move and wait to get on with the adventure.

It has been done!!!  We have our notice in for this house and our last month's rent is paid.  We have our lease done, our rent paid for our new house, and movers all lined up!!  I am packed up, our budget is done and I am ready to go.  Now it is hurry up and wait until a month from now.  But it is good to be organized and ready so that moving should not be that stressful . . . hopefully!

And just for fun, this little guy insisted on wearing a bowtie with his jammies for his night-time snack . . . isn't he adorable??

Kicking Butt!!

This little man is kicking Autism's button and surprising me every day.  Today he decided to eat "paghetti moonles" (spaghetti noodles)!!

This afternoon I cleaned his room, packed up a lot of his toys and gathered the rest of his clothes to wash and sort.  I am finished the checklist I made last Monday!!
