    Different kinda Saturday

    My Saturday started at 5:30am YUCK... I had to get up early to take myself to Traffice School....SIGH..... yes I got a speeding ticket, lets not go there though :)... So after a rather short (4 1/2 hours) class, I came home to my boys. I played with them for sometime on the floor and got many pictures of them playing together or alone (sometimes thats all Matthias wants and I give him his way).

    See how his animals are lined up even when he is holding them?!?!?!?!?

    Hmmm Should I put the block in the shoe or the bowl???Decisions................

    Here I come Momma :)

    But Gabriel, was just strolling around carrying his little musical roller toy. Its amazing to see how much I missed out on Matthias' developmental milestones when he was 1 & 2. I never got to see the things I see in Gabriel with Matthias. On one hand, that makes me extremely happy!!! Because that means Gabriel is developing just like every other little 15 month old boy. But on the other hand, it makes me grieve for what we missed with Matthias. There are still days that I struggle with those feelings, although I have to say they are very limited compared to when he was first diagnosed :).....

    Anyway, Here are a few pictures I took of my little lovies (as my friend Amy calls her kiddos, I love that name :) ) today...

    To CUTE!! Gotta love the hair! Please ignore the drool stained shirt

    Betcha never thought this handsome boy, would do this to his little brother :)....

    And the emerging traits of a typical boy starts

    Teasing his little brother,BOYS!!! PLEASE can I have it THIAS!!!

    Even though its not a great thing to do, to tease his little brother... it still made me smile because it means Matthias is doing something a typical big brother would do :)
    In the end, Gabriel ended up with the toy :) alls fair in love and war :)

    Much Love,

    Ladies and Gentlemen.....


    For the third day in a row, Matthias has peed every night in the potty on his own!!!! And Tonight, well he told me all by himself after he started to wet himself that he had to go pee pee. So I took him in the bathroom and just like, once again he started peeing. Poof just like that he is a big boy!!!

    I do not think this is all coincidental either. Just three weeks ago he started taking Nordic Naturals DHA (thank you Tim for giving us our supplements)and he has been on his Methyl B12 shots for two months now. Then just a little over a week ago he started asking to go pee on the potty every single night!

    Pretty amazing!!!! This is our #1 goal for the summer to have him potty trained before we get him to kindergarten. The poops are a little different as we have to get his tummy taken care of first.

    So as you can tell, he is recovering more and more :)

    I do have one prayer request....

    Pray that we can get our loan funded so we can continue his care with his DAN doctor quickly! I just realized today that many of his supplements are almost gone....so I am praying a great deal as I can not afford to by him all his supplements right now.

    Besides that I am a happy momma as Matthias has yet again progressed further!!!

    Much Love,

    Video I made

    So here is the video I was telling you I had made a few years ago, before I knew Matthias had autism. I had dedicated this song to him from me on his second birthday, it truely is my wish for both of my sons! Enjoy the video! Remeber to turn off the music at the bottom of my page before you play the video.

    Much Love,

    Summer days......

    Yesterday, was a good day! It was a good Memorial Day and I was so grateful for the men and women that serve our Country especially my nephew Paul.

    I had the chance to relax a little and then take the boys to their Aunt and Uncles house. My sister 'D' is Matthias' GodMomma :) and she and her hubby 'J' adores both my boys!

    We had a great time, swimming in the pool for over an hour! If Matthias had it his way we would still be in the pool right now :)

    It was just a typical summer day in Arizona, go swimming for a few hours. Come in, have a snack and watch Frosty the Snow man and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer..... Oh wait, thats just a typical day for us during the summer :) See Christmas movies are an all year occasion for him :) lol makes me laugh....

    Here are a few pics of the boys playin at their Aunties house, no pics swimming as the photographer was in the pool as well.

    Here's to a great week!

    Much Love,

    Great day had by all :)

    (Side note- thenew song that plays is the song I dedicated to Matthias from me on his 2nd birthday before I knew he had autism, I'll be posting a video I made a few years ago I just found the other day :) )

    Today, we celebrated my father's 65th birthday and we had a great time. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!!!

    Eventhough I had to stay on top of Matthias at all times so we didnt have any pushing issues, it was a good time :)He did rather well! And Gabriel well, he is my littleman and pretty much goes with the flow.

    See in this picture here....

    he's eating a LIME, and ate the whole entire lime! If i would have let him he would have ate the rind and all :) Funny kid :) Not once did he make a sour face or try and throw it down. In fact he wanted more :) To cute!!!

    Matthias was chillin out at the table with his Uncle and playing on my laptop, he loves to look at the pictures of himself :) Wonder where he gets that from???(Daddy)....

    Oh oh oh and thanks to MckMama :) I have learned how to blur my photos :) Here is an example :) Pretty cool huh :) well at least I think it is :) and any other photo fanatics out there.

    Well gotta finish getting Handsome ready for bed, long day today but good times!!

    Have a great Memorial Day! Remember our men and women in the service!

    Much Love,
