Some Amazing News!!!!

Well first things first. On Thursday I went out for a bit while grandma was here with A. When I came home she was very excited to tell me that A said TRUCK twice!!! She said she was SO excited and ready to cry hoping I would come in the door that minute. She was playing with a truck and just kept saying it over and over and then boom he said it!

Well last night I was sitting on the couch holding him and he was very focused on me. I kept saying CAR and he was really really watching my mouth. Then he said it!!! Probably about six times in a span of five minutes! J was sitting next to me and it was so amazing to hear him finally say something that you KNOW is purposeful!!!!

And my last bit of excited news, is that A slept in his big boy bed last night for the first time. He was VERY excited when we laid him down at 11:30pm and I didn’t think he would go to sleep but he did. I thought that I was going to cry as this is a HUGE step!!

Look at the head control!!!

Bonnie, his EI was here to help out by blowing bubbles during physio…

Using a joystick switch control for the first time and doing great! Of course it has to be a bubble blower! hahaha

A is his big boy bed for the first night! He looks SO small now!

Think he likes it?!? hahaha

Night night buddy!

And this morning I heard him moving around so I went in there with my camera and he was starring at the wall…

And then when he turned and saw me!

Way to go little man, mommy is SOOOOO proud of EVERYTHING that you do! You definitely are my amazing little man!

    Aw, Shannon- I know I already said that Ashton is amazing on the CP board, but I had to come here to see the pics for myself. He is one seriously accomplished little dude! That head control is incedible, his words are fantastic and must be the most beautiful music to your ears, and he looks adorable in his new bed!
