Dillon has always loved his movies...buying them, watching them. He also loves the computer and bouncing on his yoga ball! He's also an incredible writer and makes up his own stories... He wants to be a movie producer someday, I just love that!

The yoga ball came about from therapy at school and his aide gave him one as a gift...we've bought several since them because he bounces on them and they take lots of abuse, lol. It's something very calming for him and some serious exercise! He sweats up a storm! He also has started bowling, of all things.

What's your child's favorite thing to do?

My ds is blocks with numbers or letters on them. He loves to count so he puts the numbers in numerical order. Either side by side or stacks them.

Very similar to your son, actually. Loves movies, he really enjoys the bonus features. He loves watching how movies were made. He's 8 and not into writing though but video tapes himself talking about his movie collection. He's into a disney Pixar movies, obsessed actually. He has a huge collection of Didney Pixar toys and likes looking for them on eBay. He's a jumper so we got him a therapy ball and he bounces on that too and also a trampoline. When it's nice out he runs and runs.

Nothing specific.  He loves his Nabi to play Angry Birds/Bad Piggies, train set, to coloring, stuffed animals: makes believe he is a teacher and Disney movies.

Drawing while listening to music (instrumental, movie soundtracks, orchestra etc...) He loves black and white movies by Tim Burton.

Violet loves to sing, she is always singing songs. I always said its amazing how a kid that has trouble putting words together to form sentences can remember entire songs and sing. If it was warm here year round, then she would be happy to be at the beach or out in the forest playing, she is such a nature lover. Give her a leaf or a dandelion and she's as happy as if you gave her a toy. Love that about her. In the winter we spend more time inside, and she's on her iPad watching videos and playing games.

Both of my boys are really into bugs and Insects. They love going to our local parks and forests and looking for them. They have found so many incredible things..... last spring they found a field of grass that was literally covered in thousands of ladybugs.  We have a park that turns on large sprinklers in the summer time, last summer we would go out there and play in the water almost everyday. The Awesome part was...there were tons of dragonflies flying around trying to get near the water. I got some incredible photos of my children playing and all of these dragonflies swarming around them. :)

 OMGosh lol! BONUS FEATURES!! You have no idea how many times he has written that, along with the other credits of a movie! I swear to you, I have a picture I just put on my phone to upload to Instagram where he's standing in front of  a huge chalkboard and in big letters he wrote BONUS FEATURES (he writes in all capital letters) . The picture must be at least 8 year old...I HATE putting any pictures of my kids on here but I just might post this one just for you.

Last time we went to Disney was really for him because Walt is his idol and he wanted to see all he could about any Disney movie....

Isn't it amazing how similar they can be sometimes?
