A few days ago we went to a party with his school program. I was in awe at how adapted he has become to stimulation in an environment like this. In fact he was the little socialite of the party! One of the teachers said he reminded her of the elf on the shelf.
For a moment, I really can't explain.....on our way home I realized that I did something fun with my buddy without a nurse and it really wasn't that stressful. Some perspective and growth is coming our way...I can see it!
Today Isaac met Santa for the first time! I was really bummed because I figured it would be another year where it just wouldn't happen, but a Mom from my special needs group had connections and got us in to see Santa before hours. I could tell that when he put his hand out and waved at him he knew, especially from watching "Santa Claus is coming to town."
