Eat, Sleep, Grow

It’s been a pretty quiet few weeks for Mr. Boo.  He had a great time at the Autism Amped conference and hung out with a bunch of his sorority sisters.  His sibling and her friends ran rampant with the sensory activities and had a great time.  Mostly these days, though, he is focused on growing.  I put him to bed at night and swear that he grew 3 inches over night.  A and I measured him yesterday. Though he was a bit wiggly, we are sure that he is at least 5 foot 8.  In short, he towers over me and now comes up to Robert’s nose.  His feet grew two whole sizes in less than one month.

So, what does this mean?  It means he is spending a lot of time sleeping and eating.   Growing this fast is hard work.  He sleeps hard at night and it is difficult to get him up for his beloved bus in the morning.  We are both looking forward to summer break so I can just let him sleep in.  When he is not sleeping he is raiding the refrigerator.  Cheese seems to be his favorite good at the moment and he eats it by the fistful.  When he is not eating and sleeping he enjoys going to school, track practice, going on adventures with his PCAs, and generally hanging out.  His area track meet for Special Olympics is this Sunday.  He is competing in the 25 meter, 100 meter and 400 meter walk.  We are still working on keeping him in his own lane, as he tends to wander. He, A, and I have a hot date on Thursday at the local track where we will just work on staying in one lane.  More updates after the meet.  Stay ausome!
