Looking back

At this time a year ago, we were in a much different place. Landen was unstable and in partial hospitalization. I was completely stressed with life and not enjoying it much. He was unstable all the time, I couldn't leave him alone with anyone for fear of a huge rage and/or meltdown. It was exhausting. Fast forward to now. He's successfully stayed in school all year, so far! No major issues..A few minor meltdowns and some difficulties getting to school but I'll gladly take this over what we had last year. I'm very proud of him, he's learning more and more everyday. He's actually enjoying reading chapter books now, which is HUGE!!!! We still have sibling rivalry issues and most of the time, its the little sister picking on the big guy!
He's now slept in his new bed for a week! This makes for the first time that he's slept in a bed since October of 2011!!! He seems to be sleeping better and he's not waking up much at night anymore, which seems to help his moods.
I'm thankful for where we are now but also from where we have come. Without those tough roads, I wouldn't stop to enjoy the little things now. Everyday he continues to amaze me in some way. I love him forever for that.
