A year ago today, our lives changed forever. Our precious boy was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, or ASD. The news completely broke our hearts and we were unaware of what our journey ahead looked like. As husband and wife, our bond became stronger than ever as we fought to give our boy any and every opportunity he needed to succeed. At one point, Fenix was doing over 30 hours a week of in home therapy, speech, and occupational therapy. When he wasn't in a formal therapy, we were using everything they taught us and we worked with him every chance we got. It has been 365 days of learning, growing, grace, compassion, humility and so much love for our amazing little man. We can't put into words how proud we are of him. He has made so much progress, it is beyond miraculous. And now, after one year, our life has changed greatly. All of the hard work has paid off and we have a very happy and very talkative little boy that brings so much joy to every one that meets him. He is my inspiration and my hero. God really blessed us beyond measure when he chose us to be his parents. #autism #autismawareness #autismmom #autismacceptance #autismlife #lifewithautism #autismwarrior #differentnotless

It has been 3 weeks of potty training success!! Along with some accidents and Star Wars undies that we had to part with, we are so proud of our boy. We were told that potty training kiddos on the spectrum is usually difficult, so we waited and gave him more time until we felt he was ready. He is even telling the teachers at school when he has to go. We love our boy and we celebrate every milestone, whether big or so small that most would over look it. πŸš½πŸŽ‰πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½ #autism #lifewithautism #autismawareness

He got wet at the beach and quickly became too cold. Coming down from that was hard so I'm sitting in the backseat with Bryce and he is insisting on holding my hand. It's moments like these that melt my heart. #lifewithautism

13 years ago our lives changed irreversibly. Mika came into this world. We had no idea what a roller coaster ride we were in for. Some of it shared with you all here, and some of it a private struggle that we must deal with in house. But we were gifted a unique, beautiful child, who regularly blows us away with deep insights and a sensitive soul. The world needs people like our Aspie, and it has been our honour to be chosen as parents. I won't say it doesn't sadden me that we can't celebrate the actual milestone birthday, thus the cheery balloon, but I will quietly celebrate 13 years as a mumma. That deserves cake! #lifewithautism

universalise : You've done well! Happy birthday to Meeks
kearata : Nicely said. Happy anniversary day to you all. There are different forms of celebration for different people; quiet, shared routine and family time can be the best kind of celebration there is for some.
smauge : Well, @kearata, he hates family time too, so it doesn't leave a lot LOL! He was happy when I told him we're celebrating our parent anniversary as it took all the pressure off him and we didn't see him emerge from the bedroom for the rest of the day!

Oh LAWD that was epic! It was not been made any easier by the Aspie's specific requirements, forcing me to meld together two different recipes, my electric whisk shitting it's pants (this was MOUSSE cake!) and the Little Miss home sick from school. If this doesn't get a half smile and a forced "Ok, thanks", I'll be bitterly disappointed. #lifewithautism

#tbt Fun Fact About Me! As a baby HATED grass, it's didn't matter if I was sitting or standing, I hated it! People usually with autism have sensory issues, mine are loud noises (when I was little) And my hair, the fact it's long, you usually see my hair up. It's never down except for picture day. And tags, I HATE tags with a passion. If I don't have scissors nearby, I will rip that tag out! Usually leaving a huge hole! Thanks @moxiemamaerin for not strangling me to death after leaving gigantic holes in my clothes #lifewithautism

Ok, I give up! The Aspie requested a Zumbo chocolate mousse cake for his birthday. But after checking three supermarkets, Coles Online, AND the @zumbopatisserie in Rozelle and Balmain, I can't find one packet mix. Were they discontinued? I don't know how the Aspie will take this news. Probably with a heart wrenching bellow much like Darth Vader at the end of episode III. Hopefully one I can make myself (and have in the past) will suffice. All is forgiven though, Adriano, because...Hamburger pie. 😜 #lifewithautism
