She can catch a ball!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm so crazy excited and I figured you other special needs moms would be able to understand....

I watched my newly 4 year old DD play catch with my DH today and she CAUGHT THE BALL! 5 out of 6 times!!!!

She has high functioning autism and she really struggles with ball play and motor planning. I can't tell you how many times I have watched a ball bounce off her chest because she held her arms straight up/out/to the side and made no move to actually catch the ball. I was shocked when she was so successful today!

I cheered like she won the Olympics and she was so proud of herself. I am just thrilled!

Amazing! WTG DD!

I totally know the feeling...the guy at the bakery at our grocery store gave DS a cookie last week (not realizing DS has severe food aversions) and DS actually attempted to eat it. I cheered and almost started crying - the baker probably thought I was nuts for carrying on about a cookie.
