I'm glad that Jacob is understanding what he needs to when he feels that he is becoming overstimulated. He's put himself in the shower and switched it on. (I always keep the dial very low as he is able to put the shower on himself as it's attached to the taps) but this is the beauty of having such a great relationship with your child that you are able to tell their next move without them even having to say. By him knowing how and when to do this has prevented what could have been a awful meltdown for god knows how long. 30 mins we've been here so far. He will also grab the bag pack filled with stuff and run with it on. Another great form of releasing that tension. I'm so proud. HE'S TWO YEARS OLD! anything is possible with time. #time

I have waited 8 months to be able to get these boys close enough for pictures. I was able to get a few up until recently but now Noah doesn't push him away and run. He doesn't cry. He doesn't scream. I chose this pic to share because he even sits there and let's me try to get a good picture of the both of them without getting upset. My heart would hurt when all I wanted was to get a good pic of them together but knew it would be better to not push Noah. I never talked about this because what can we do other than what we were already doing? I am so happy to finally have pictures of these two. Little did I realize it would soon be harder to get a picture of Q than it would be of Noah!
"Agreed, as my ASD child is thudding and thumbing around the house right now; constantly on the move as cabin fever has truly set in! Give me strength! Truly! Is it bedtime yet, lol!!! Thank you to @dadandburied via @howtobeadad
