LIVE NOW - NO OPPORTUNITIES WASTED!!! LIVE in the NOW!

Every day more and more children in South Africa are born with Autism.



Cullen was born 15 September 2006...



Children with Autism dont show emotion, dont make eye contact, dont play, dont interact, often have problems with Speech and fine motor control...



Cullen continues to challenge himself and conquer all of this...



The Challenge - SPEECH and FINE MOTOR CO-ORDINATION, MORE PLAY, MORE INTERACTION...







Follow our journey, our challenge, our triumph, our lives...

WORDS glorious WORDS and other stuff

CLEAN

HELLO

MMMMMMMM

WORDS...all words our Horsie is saying...yes yes not all the time...but they are being said and I am quite sure more is being said but we need to listen closely!

You know this may seem frivolous to some, but each word is like an amazing gift, being unwrapped and left for you to saviour. It just seems that the older our boy gets, the progression is coming, and yes it may be in drips and drabs, but we have something to celebrate and enjoy. Just the other day I read a blog about a mommy with her 13 year old boy, and her celebration that he drank out of a straw, after all this time. SO YES WE ARE THANKFUL AND GRATEFUL...

WE ARE ALSO HOPEFUL that the progression comes in WAVES instead of drips...

AND HE IS SLEEPING....
Can I get a woooop!!!!!!

Thankf ul, grateful and faithful...

The other stuff, just a quickie...
What are your thoughts on aluminium in products, and to me doesn't matter the "how much" it matters that there is heavy metals in almost everything we use. PLEASE PLEASE if I reach just one of you today...please check labels on all your products, cosmetic and the like. Minimise your usage, be selective in your purchases, be safe, be the holder of your own HEALTH PASSPORT!!!

Will post a pic of my favourite underarm stick sans Aluminium soonest.

AND...lastly have Epsom Salt baths, detoxing, refreshing and just plain good for you!

Tickly FUNS and OMEGA 3

ok so Horsie has finally made the leap...
He finds being tickled FUNNY and reacts to our attempts at tickling him...
you see most parents would take this step for granted...neurotypical kiddies automatically access certain parts of their brain to feel pleasure and laugh and be tickled and enjoy it all at once...
For our Horsie this has been a GREAT developmental milestone...
And one we are so proud of...
LONG MAY WE TICKLERS Flourish!!!'

In part it may be because of the extra OMEGA 3 "Nordic Naturals Omega 3" google it - its amazing stuff!!!
We started adding it to his afternoon bottie - yes he still drinks a bottie we tried weaning a few times but Horsie just aint ready to let go quite yet!

And I personally think addition to that and his Aldactone a powerful anti inflammatory for kids with Autism has really started to change things around...so much so that we skipped one dose and we had a Horsie who was moody and almost in a complete mushy shambles!

So thank you for the Omega 3 and tickles..

Its the smallest things...
Gratitude!!!
LOVE!!!
Amazement!!!

Soaking it up

Have a beautiful Thursday all.
