* A boy with a friend. After school on Friday, I had a friend of mine with a little boy in Jaiden's class drop us home. We so desperately want them to be friends, to notice each other. A mama's prayer on both ends. The life of having special needs kids. Jaiden got in the back seat of their van. S (my friend's son) sitting in his seat in the middle of the van, took notice that Jaiden was riding along and quickly jumped up and sat in the back with Jaiden. Jaiden smiled big. I looked back and S was relaxing with his feet on Jaiden's lap haha. He showed him his Wiggles cd. Jaiden smiled big. Jaiden asks to see S every day now. We will start carpooling soon. Jaiden has made his first friend. A first friend at 9!

For more firsts please read A first birthday at 9.

Yay! More answers to prayer. That's awesome. God cares about the little (big) things like making new friends. Love your list and your new pics in your header.
