Leaps and Bounds!

Well, I made it through getting Lucas to the opthomologist.  He has an astigmatism and is far sited but they aren't going to give him glasses yet.  They said he will probably need them in a few years without a doubt.  I never knew that they were able to tell if a child like Lucas even needed glasses without him communicating.   He was out of control in there though! It took three grown adults to hold him down for the doctor to look at him.  They had to dilate his eyes and he was not a happy boy! LOL

I am so darn proud of him.  He has been really jumping in leaps and bounds.  He wants to talk so badly.  You can see it in his face.  His mouth moves but the words just don't come out.  We'll in the last few days he has been saying things that he's never said before.  We've been working on "for me"  for several months now and he pounded on his chest and said "ME", to tell me he wanted a pretzel!  (WIPES TEARS)  Any little step makes my heart skip a beat with Lucas.  If I could give him my voice and never talk again, I would!  He's been signing the word "more" too.  I guess he was ready!  Again, this is another thing we've been working on forever and it just so happens that it all came out over the last few days.

I'm thinking about posting a poll to find out how many or if any of our other parents of children with SPD have fibromyalgia and if there are any correlations between the two.  If anyone out there has heard or studied anything about this I would love to hear about it.

I just found out my daughter has amblyopia & strabismus so she is wearing glasses and a patch to help strengthen her weak eye. She's only 20 months! I still don't completely understand how they can figure that out at her age. Good luck to you guys :)
