Crying with Happiness

Jonathan was hungry tonight and he kept saying sandwich. He usually uses a word for a few days but calls all food that. So some days everything is pizza or apples. Tonight we tried everything to figure out what he wanted. He finally said "come here" and took us to the kitchen and said sandwich and pointed at the bread. So hubby got out the apple butter and that is exactly what he wanted. He ate it and then said more sandwich so we made another one and it's exactly what he wanted. I am so happy. On top of that he initiated play with his sister. He wanted her to copy him so he went to her and started shaking his head and she did the same then he moved it side to side and she copied and he just laughed and kept changing movements to get her to follow. Talk about tears of joy tonight. My dh just looked at me and smiled and went back to watching them play
