Earlier in October we celebrated our amazing 4 year old's birthday. Editing the photos we captured, they touched me in such a way I just couldn't help but want to blog and share! Our sweet little man struggles to interact and participate in activities that other kids his age do regularly due to Autism. This was the FIRST time ever that Jacob opened presents, some on his own and some with assistance! He showed smiles and expressions of enjoyment in the activity that he never cared for before! There are not enough words to describe how this makes "mama and dad" feel. We were overjoyed with excitement for him as we watched it all unfold.
Jacob's favorite thing about parties is CAKE! He is like obsessed. He still didn't know how he felt about everyone singing to him but it was worth it once he realized he got cake afterwards! This was a birthday we will always remember and makes us so excited to see what is to come for our big guy! Autism can be so hard sometimes but understanding it and being there for him ensures all his experiences are great ones!
