Another week in The Glee Club on Dixie Pieces.
Here is a little back ground on Tristan. He had low muscle tone when he was really little. I always knew there was something different about him and I never stopped trying to figure it out. I mean what two year old knows all the names of all the construction vehicles and all the cars on the road. He could say 100 words at a year old and could speak in sentences... We were finally able to get a diagnosis when he was nine. Aspergers or high functioning autism....honestly, I wasn't shocked. He was also diagnosed with OCD and turrets syndrome. It was hard to swallow all at one time but I never thought for one second that there was anything wrong with him. He is perfect the way he is! :) The doctor offered medications but I decided that I didn't want to medicate my sweet boy.
I also was able to complete a birthday card for a mini challenge. I don't really like the way it turned out, wasn't what I pictured in my head....but it will do :)
