Jesse is a baby's daddy! My sister is a grandmother now. I was teasing her for months and she was ready to kick my butt and now she's bragging about it! LOL Hey! I wish I was going to be a grandmother. A great aunt feels pretty good too!

Sleeping Prince

Originally uploaded by jippyjabber.

He passed out at my sisters. He's been awake for days. I woke up to him pinching my nose. He opens one nostrail and then pinches my nose again. I've busted him pinching my nose before but now I know he has an elaborate system. I just can't go five days without sleep anymore. Two or three and I am down. I guess he figured out I'll wake up to breathe! LOL

A spiritual Christmas?

Originally uploaded by jippyjabber.

He has everything. He isn't asking for anything this year! I think we should plan a vacation.

I know my granfather is on hospice and my nephew is going to have a new baby so emotionally we'll be stretched far in both joy and sorrow. I am fine just keeping our celebration mellow.

If Animal Planet doen't start up with mass toy commercials I just might get off with a scared Santa gift and keep the day about family and not gifts.

I've got Zach at the gym twice a week. It's the best way for me to get a healthy male influence in his life. It's really different when his trainer tells him, "good man, good man" I am so proud of Zach. Video coming of his work out.

A baby's daddy Any day now!

Originally uploaded by jippyjabber.

This is my oldest nephew and any day now he's about to make me a great aunt. I had the best old aunts. I am so excited to meet the next generation. He asked me if I was coming down when the baby is born and I hope and pray Zach will let it happen cause I told them I was going to be there for sure! YIKES!

Butterflies R us

Originally uploaded by jippyjabber.

Oh yes, we like reptiles. But butterflies and moths are very interesting. Don't forget the California Condor on his shirt. What a handsome young man! He's not interested in going to school. He is trippleing his vocabulary just following what he loves. Reptiles mostly but inscets are cool too.

the doc stepped up to the plate

This Dr. Gantan,
He told me not to change Zachary's medicine. He's hooking me up with someone. A new someone new............ I admit that the old new guy had me scared to death. Litterally, I could not see how I could make it. I've been here before and surrived. It's always a miracle or a hero. Ah a hero has arrived. I am glad. I am so thankful.

artifical energy

Originally uploaded by jippyjabber.

I took Zach to the hospital today for the flu shot.
The doctor was wondering where the hell have I been???
So I wasn't just MIA online.

I got good news though. It seems that possibly, a new doctor is opening up the pain clinic at Childrens!!! YaY!

I am not ready to talk yet. I can't write when I have secrets.
Damn, I just wanted to keep my pain to myself. I don't want to relive it.

I need a healing.

Zach's favorite things

Originally uploaded by jippyjabber.

THis is Art at it's finest. I think so's truly life inspired. Zachary does this all the time. EVERYWHERE! One day I gave him a canvas and he did his thing with straw and stir sticks. He went out with his nanny for a walk and I attacked it with glue. He came home to find this on the wall in his bedroom. Of course I made some mistakes glueing and it didn't go unnoticed, however, Zach was still able to appriciate the effort and enjoy his master piece.

I've had less of these all over the place but he still has to have some handy. STICKS from outside are his true love but he settle for straws and stir sticks in the house. It's a great way to get him to agree to go to Sarbucks with mommy. OH and hats off to starbucks never giving me a hard time for the handfuls and handfuls or stirr sticks my son takes from there!

Wasn't he so cute!

Originally uploaded by jippyjabber.

I just felt like posting this. I want to show how much he's grown.
When I compare this coyboy photo to the most recent one, I can't help feeling relieved. He's so much more verbal now and damn it makes things easier. I had to take photos of him in many costumes so he could choose whic one he wanted. It was so much work but worth it so he could be happy I've spent so much money on the wrong thing and then braving the storm of Z until we figure out that we have to go get "the other one"

I also rememeber how bitchy and dismissive a "mother" was when she asked me where this photo was taken. That woman is still a bitch to me and I believe she is proud of it. I got the last laugh, her kid isn't as happy as mine.

Gym 1

Originally uploaded by jippyjabber.

Zachary is going to the gym twice a week. Richard works with pro women body builders but he saves some time for autistic children. He's awesome.

Zach's a teenager now and he's in need of some male bonding time. This is so good forhim on so many levels. It is also helping him SLEEP!

This is a big thing for us. We've been using the wheel chair much less and I see a day soon that I leave it in storage. YAY!

Look who made a friend. Zach went to watch his cousin dance at a festival down at the Rose Bowl. While we were there we petted a goat and oddly enough a chicken. Then Zach met a this guy. He's wanting to ride but he can't until his osteopena is better and fear breaking bones is less. How cute is my coybow and his friend? Oh and if you've missed me...... can you see how big he is now???? My boy is offically a teenager.
