~Autism and the “little things”~
What may seem like nothing significant to most people is in fact a great accomplishment for Emmett. I was playing the game, “I got your nose” with Emmett the other day. It was kinda funny but I didn’t think anything of it. Today however, I realized that it was a pretty big deal and here’s why. Emmett climbed up on the couch with me and reached over and “took my nose”. He then said “I got your nose”. Most people would say big deal he said “I got your nose”. It’s a HUGE deal because this is the first time in his entire life that he has strung 4 words together. It may not have been “I love you Daddy” or “Mommy, I love you” but this was just as awesome.
~When you have a child with Autism~
I have said this many times before and I’ll say it again. When you have a child with Autism you simply don’t take the “little things” for granted. Every little baby step is a major accomplishment….even if you are the only one to realize it. So in that spirit I wanted to share this amazing moment with all of you. I only caught the tail end of this on camera and the quality is pretty rough but you’ll get the point.
There are AMAZING moments in Autism and this was one of them.
