At a huge Christmas party he did so well. He played well with his cousins. This is the first year where we really didn't have to worry about him at all. We both got to have adult conversations. It was. Wonderful. During the big gift exchange (all the adults bring one gift, the opening order is random and they can be stolen. It was chaos. DS sat in the middle of the group with his cousins. When it got to be to much he went and got his new coloring book. He returned to the group with it and concentrated on coloring. I was so proud. He wanted to be part of the group and found a way to cope all on his own!!!
On Christmas Eve we pulled up Norad's Santa Tracker and he immediately put himself to bed LOL. He's been so excited. It's been awesome.
Though I know now that DD will never be a Santa kid - cannot stand the man himself in any way shape or form, can't handle the "disarray" read - anything turned 15+degrees let alone oats left by the reindeer (particularly a huge huge issue Christmas morning); the DIY Lego table is quite a hit - which is saying something being an actual "toy" thing. She also figured out on her own to move her hands or an object across the top while sitting and watching a show for sensory input!!!
Sitting at a table..not even eating...for more than 3 minutes - I may actually get something done!!! Oh yeah and got the high functioning nod again from the SLP (with seemingly more "our style" ASD kids than our OT) which always makes my heart happy.
