The other day I asked Austin a question. He told me the answer and a few minutes later I asked him the same question. (I do this, I call it "Mommie Brain"! lol!) Anyway, when he answered me the second time he said the answer and then "I just told you that Mom!". I almost fell off my seat! I was recounting the story to my husband when I asked Austin another question that we had previously discussed. Again he said "I told you the other day that ... " and proceeded to give the answer. This is a HUGE accomplishment for Austin! Normally he would just give the same answer over and over. Never let you know that he is aware he has been asked whether it was minutes, hours or days ago. I am so pleased for him! YAY for you buddy! Mommie LOVES YOU! OX
*HUGS* and all the best!
A note to Jacquie:
I was so ready to write this post the other day. I was so happy and excited for Austin. I went and checked my blogs that I follow, most of them about Autism, and I came upon yours and read the latest post. It took the wind right out of my sails. You are a wonderful person and Mother and I just wanted to send you my best and let you know I am thinking of you and was so saddened to hear your news. You always offer support and share your experiences with me, I am truly grateful to you. I had to tell you how much I was affected by your post and how it touched my heart. Sending you *HUGS*!
