Wearing his sister’s light up shoes because they’re awesome. Taking a nap on the kitchen floor because he’s awesome. (A banana was harmed during the making of this photo.) #lightupshoes#ausome#asd#autismkidsrock
Alexander’s 3rd Birthday today! We are thrilled that you loved your birthday! My heart is filled with so much happiness. How much we’ve grown in this short year. We are so proud of you. We will continue to do all we can to ensure you are happy and healthy in every way! 😘 #autismlove#autismfamily#happybirthday
Cooking up some tasty treats with a dash of cars and Penny by his side. I’ve been trying to encourage some #pretendplay. We’ve cooked, shopped, and filled up our cars with gasoline - any other ideas? #learningthroughplay
Playing supermarket! He loves going to the supermarket with daddy and now he’s also enjoying it at home too! Today he sold me a plane and an orange for a great price 😜 I’m loving all of the #socialcommunication while we #playpretend !
There are many things to consider when planning a birthday celebration for Alexander. First, what type of celebration most celebrates him and what type of celebration would he most enjoy? Although he doesn’t quite grasp the birthday idea and would probably prefer a “lining-up-cars-at-home-non-party”, I (we) feel it is important to celebrate him in a way that is a tad more special and out of the ordinary! Alexander does seem to understand that birthday parties require a birthday cake; so, the plan is to have the party at home so that he can enjoy lining up cars if he so chooses and have his cake and eat it too! And now for the cake...I’m looking for cake inspiration to make it extra special! Ideas welcome! #peppapigcake#autismkid
