We have had some exciting improvements since the 'new sheriff' moved in last week. Our family life is becoming less like "Gorillas in the Mist" and more like scenes from "Awakenings". Jake is following directions better and interacting more. He has begun imaginative play and is learning to read. I decided to capitalize on this developmental leap and focus on making big changes regarding Jake's mealtime challenges. The results have been amazing. I'll post more specific details on that soon.
Jake received his very first invitation to a friend's birthday party this week. The big event is today and I am so nervous! I have no idea how he will react. Of course, I am flying solo with both kids and Sarah has refused to take a nap today. If nothing else, the party experience will be interesting.
Attending a party is a big step for Jake (and me). Wish us luck!
