About this blog.

My son was diagnosed with PDD-NOS at 24 months. I created this blog to bring meaning to the often-confusing label. Sometimes I have answers. Other times, just more questions.

Brad and Jeremy playing.

This is truly a source of happiness and pride for me.



Brad is still floppy - we're still working on that. But he's come so far in terms of speech and social. I couldn't be prouder - of him.

That's great! My daughter wants to join them. She asked to go to "them house". LOL!

Oh thank you so much for sharing this happy video!! It was so nice to see.

Egg is "floppy" too!

Laura said...

Thanks. rainbowmummy - yeah, Kranowitz refers to floppy kids as beseiged by the "gravity monster" - I like that.

Teacher-"Where is Egg's halloween costume?"
ME*pointing*-"There"
TEACHER-"Where, I can't see it, what is he?"
ME-"a gravity monster!"

I have never heard that before, I also like that. Egg just moves constantly. He is also a dive-at-the-sofa-and-land-upside-downer!

ps I forgot to say that the video makes me want a brother or sister for Egg....

I have a son who generally doesn't do too well around his peers, so I can imagine how wonderful this must be for you. They are doing so well!

Psstt. I found you via Quirky Mom. :)

rainbowmummy - LOL didn't mean to make your ovaries throb.

Kia - yeah Quirky Mom's blog is a great place to hookup. She knows all the good little spots.

That is great playing. I can't wait for my daughter to play like that too.

They are so cute. He looks like he's doing GREAT! I think my Orangeboy is proof that they can do well with moderate intervention - like you say. Thanks for commenting on my blog.

LJ's mom,
Hi and welcome. I didn't see an email addy so I'll reply here: Brad is going to be three in January. He was diagnosed at 24 months. So I'm far from an expert - just blogging real time about our journey and my ideas.
