I say this every time I write a Blog post... lol "From this point on I'm going to post more often," blah, blah, blah. Then LIFE somehow happens and gets in the way. LIFE surely has had its own plan with me lately, and I find myself reevaluating and rolling with the punches. No matter what is going on though, I am in a constant quest to make this little guys life easier and get him to communicate... for those who don't know, my son has Autism.
I read an article about a month ago, about an older girl with Autism who's parents gave her a camera, and how her pictures revealed a lot about her and how she viewed the world. ;) Now, typically if I get a camera out around my children this is how it goes: Older girls primping and trying to look good. The oldest not wanting a full picture of herself taken. All of us wrangling the younger boys trying to get just ONE good group picture. lol That's how we roll. :)
So, after reading this article and my bright idea to show Caden how a camera works... I now get a regular CHEEEEEEESE from him. THANK YOU LORD! lol Then come the random choice words from myself because he takes it upon himself to now get my camera out and haul it around the house. Maybe not my best idea ever... hahahaha
I love that he is now sitting and cheesing for me though, and he will even hold the camera to take his own pictures (with some help). We will be building on this skill... with much supervision. :) Love this wildman who keeps us on our toes every. single. day. <3 Until next time... -Erica
