Went to go to bed. Thomas. You crack me up with your randomness.

He has sensory issues, first of all, and has really thick hair. And, does not like nails or hair … anything that requires maintenance! Why do we have to have hair and nails???? He’s serious, too!

Thomas randomness. Found on the kitchen table: One red, squishy octopus. I’m so blessed by Thomas. He brings laughter every single day!

When I got in the car to pick up Thomas from school, I caught a glimpse of the book he’s reading. HA!! He cracks me up!

Thomas set up a studio this morning for a LEGO photo shoot! So cool! I like the scene where the photographer is on top of the backdrop wall! HA!

Sweet Dreams Spell from the book “A Little Fairy Princess Magic” … Read to Lillian just about every night for about the past 2 years …
“Faires, as I rest in bed, bring sweet dreams into my head, keep me safe and guard the door, bring tales of happiness forever more. As I close my eyes and fall asleep, bring magical memories for me to keep. Fairies, as I rest in bed bring sweet dreams into my head.”
Sweet dreams to all y’all tonight. Gonna review my talk for tomorrow to a group of UNR undergrad med students from a parent’s perspective (of being parent to a child with special needs) and then I’m off to dream land!

Made some 5 minute instant rice to go w/ dinner & Thomas said, “I like this, You’re a Great Cooker & I Love You”. Just had to share ~ this little man surprises me every day with his funny & beautiful comments!
(Photo from our June 2009 Date Day – He preferred the stairs to the escalator. We used to have date days at the airport. He loved roaming around, eating lunch, and looking at the airplanes. We stopped doing it once they remodeled and closed off many areas.)

Thomasism ~ On the way back from letting him run off some of his energy at the cool little pull off on Geiger Grade ~
“Can we please stop at a water station??!!! I need some water!!”
He was very thirsty – had done quit a bit of running around. Love the simplicity of his thinking!

Rushing With Waves
Relaxes The Soul Of Others
Water …. Poem by Thomas Darnell …
The true love and happiness in this young man’s heart blesses me more than words can describe! xoxoxo
Ever wonder what it looks like to hug the sky? I called Thomas over to look at the beautiful sky. He went outside and hugged our skinny little tree and asked me to take a picture of him hugging the sky. Now you know what a sky hugging looks like … Go out and give that sky a hug y’all!!
