Tired of the videos? Here's some still photos of Eliza brushing her sleep. Look how tired and glazed over her eyes look. I can remember brushing and brushing my hair before I went to bed when I was a little girl. Actually, I was always brushing my hair... I found Eliza (unsolicited) brushing her hair the other night. It was really sweet. She let me snap pictures and then showed how she can now smile on command for the last picture. This moment came on the heels of a tough week; a very autistic week. She was very unfocused at school, distracted by her feet? Hitting her head a lot; major sleep issues... just an all around tough week. But today is Sunday and she is napping next to me on the couch at a nice early hour so I'm hoping and praying that next week the sun shines brighter on us!

Eliza is child-model, movie star pretty! She just keeps getting more beautiful with each post. And, that HAIR! It is so luxurious! I just love how she is brushing it all by herself, such a big girl thing to do. :)

I know that you guys had a ROUGH week and I believe that the sun will be shining brighter on you soon! :) Hang in there and if you want to see "bad" just look at MY most recent post! *lol*.

Hugs and lets have that glass of wine one day this coming week!!

E's so beautiful!!...One of our former ABA programmers once said to me that she has found that God makes autistic children the most physically beautiful of all children. :-)
You already know that we too did not have a *banner* week at our house either. However, as the saying goes "it gets darkest before the dawn", ....let's hope, right? And with each struggle, we come out the other side stronger and smarter. Hang in there friend as will I.
