Sometimes He Just Surprises Us!

So far, it is unknown the extent of mental retardation Smiley may/may not have. Sometimes, like tonight he surprises us. I don't know what you think but it definately looks like he is problem solving here:

Inside Smiley's mind:

Hmmm...There has to be a way out of this bed....I got it!

1. Jump and jump real hard until the screws come out.

2. Slip out through the bottom!

3. Watch out! I'm free!

    That's hilarious! I did not know a baby could fit in that little space between the mattress and the crib bars...nor do I know of many babies that would attempt that! Kids are so much fun!

    Kids are so funny. I enjoy your stories and look forward to reading. Can I get added to the palace? My email is I have a 7 year old girl and a 14 year old son. I do not see how you handle so much in your life. I can bearly handle a job, house, husband, and 2 kids. I would love to go back to school, but don't have the will power right now.

    The only reason I'm back in school is because I got a job teaching(which is hard work, but has lots of days off) and I have to take a few more classes to become certified, then I'm done. I was fortunate to get this job, so gonna do what it takes to keep it for my family.


    Babies can't fit through that space. He jumped until the screws came out that side of the crib which allowed the side to open. L is going to have to re-drill some new holes to reinforce it better. He's not NEAR ready for a toddler bed.

    L, He is too cute. Don't EVER let some diagnosis 'label' him. He will learn at his own pace. My foster son was with us for 17 months. (placed at 4 months). He did not take one step or speak one word while with us. He was diagnosed globally delayed at a 10 month level when he left ( at 21 months old). We decided that we could not raise a special needs child with our 4 bio children. I was so desperate for a diagnosis to understand why he was so delayed. He is now with his adoptive parents a year (April) and is 3 and had discontinued services (speech, occupational, and physical) and is thriving. Go figure. As far as I know he is on target. I thought he'd end up in a wheelchair. I know he's where he is supposed to be. But I can't help but wonder what he'd be doing now if he was still with us. Smiley is a special little boy. You are blessed!!! Do you still have J???

    Okay, he know those screws are what is holding him right now so I guess it's time to challenge him a little more huh? Hey they all figure out how to escape. The oldest of my twins sisters would drive her younger sister crazy to make her cry until someone came to get her and would then the older stand up expectantly. It worked. Everytime.

    Smart Boy you have there.

    yes, J is still here. He was recently staffed for TPR,so should be freed for adoption in the next 6 months or so.
