Meet Cam!

Here is my Cameron! I want to introduce you to the person who created the Ranting and Raving Lunatic Autism Mom. The day he was born he was perfect and my whole world changed. The day he was diagnosed he was perfect and my whole world came into focus


Today he is nine and in third grade. For school meetings we are asked if he is diploma bound and I say, "No! He is college bound!" He is so smart, clever and funny, he holds the strings to my heart. He makes me laugh, he makes me cry and he frustrates me until I want to scream. Every single word that "they" said he would never speak is gold and every hug "they" said he wouldn't give is heaven. When he is having a bad day then so am I, when he is happy the world is bright. I love him, "so much"
Cameron: "How much is so?"
Me: "Way way more than you know"

Cameron loves to read and cook, he loves is DS, Wii and computer. His desire to do something involving a screen borders on obsession. He has listened to classical music since he was an infant because that was what soothed him (well, that and Meatloaf and Queen but thats another blog topic), when he turned 5 he started playing his favorite melodies on a cheap electric keyboard we picked up. He prefers to play by ear and will stop playing all together if you put him in lessons. He loves to play the drums. The music he listens to now is more current and he picks out the drum beat and rushes to his drum set to figure it out. I love to hear him play, I love to hear him progress though a song and I love to see his face when he figures it out!

    I still look forward to meeting him in person someday. Grant has always liked drums too.

    I loved this: "The day he was born he was perfect and my whole world changed. The day he was diagnosed he was perfect and my whole world came into focus".

    Beautiful

  3. The "so much" comment made me laugh :) Our thing is I ask Devan, "Do I love you?" He says "YES". I ask, "How much?" He answers with a definitive, "So much" then closes his eyes with his big grin and rocks back and forth. I LOVE IT!! :)
