Angels among us...

Our new back deck!

Daddy and Uncle Scottie hard at work!
Will and cousin Jason watching all the fun!

Posting has been few and far between lately. Mom, Will, and I all had the flu and then Mom went into the hospital, had surgery. Thank God she is okay! Because of the severity of everything with Mom, my little brother Scottie was able to come home from Alaska to visit. I had not seen him since 2004 so I was quite excited!

Scott knew how bad I wanted a deck in the back yard so Will could play outside without always heading for the street or throwing himself off a six foot hill. So he did all the plans and he and Kevin got to work! With the help of my older brother, nephews, and brother-in-law they built a beautiful deck with gates so that Will could play outside as much as he wants!! Something he absolutely loves! Scottie worked morning to well into the night as did Kevin when he wasn't at work. I think Scottie spent like 15 hours at the Home Depot! He worked until the moment he left for the airport! Kevin continued working the next few days to finish. Thank you all for the hard work!!
With mom in the hospital, I spent a lot of time away from home. We had many visitors in the house and our general routine was way off. With that, and still being a little sick, Will was in rare form. Hitting, biting, pinching, pulling hair. It sucked! I guess that is how he deals with everything. Wants to make sure everyone feels how he is feeling?? Not really sure but glad it is mostly over. He still has a hard time dealing with not getting what he wants but part of that has to be being two. He has settled back into his happy self and I'm happy to report stress levels are going down!
Will is enjoying his new deck and his new found freedom of being able to go outside by himself. (Of course, we have an eye on him) but he can play with his toys, play with water, and throw things off the deck and is quite happy!!
Lately we have come by some of the worst and some of the best in people. Whenever we take Will out we know there is some chance of someone being ugly, making some comment about him. We have come across some of those people lately. But we have also come across some that restore faith in humanity! My brother could have easily enjoyed his time in Atlanta, sleeping late, and laying by Keith's pool, whatever. But he chose to do something so special for our family. He has no idea how much it means to me. On another note, a women who has never even met Will has again given him a gift. She is the Mom of a good friend of Kevin's. She has given us $300 dollars for Will's treatment! Which we greatly appreciate. It is people like that, who come out of nowhere, who surprise me. Angels among us.

Wow Wow Everyone!

We love Wubbzy so we were really excited when he decided to promote Autism Awareness Month. Will watches this video over and over. Check it out!
