As an autism mom, I'm grateful for another spontaneous word that Caiti said yesterday morning. She woke up in a bad mood, and as always, it was a guessing game figuring out what she wanted. However; she came up to me and said, "Open?" She then grabbed my hand and led me to the bathroom. So, I opened the bathroom (which was locked for reasons I will explain in my next post), so she could have a bath (which is Caiti's favorite thing in the world). Her bath was very soothing to her and cheered her up. Yay for some functional language!
