How's that working out with the new addition? Alice is 4, but she's on a 2 yr old level now with the autism. Throwing tantrums, getting into stuff, CLIMBING, not listening... Its tough sometimes! I have high hopes for her, though. The big time autistic kids I've been around never got to the level she's at now. I expect her to graduate with her peers.
Jojo is 1.5 years old now. I definitely can't leave them in a room together, so if I go to the bathroom I take one of them with me. Jojo is really good with Livy. Jojo's so young that it didn't really phase her when we brought Livy home. She's usually really good with her, but we just have to watch her sometimes. Like now Jojo is learning all the body parts, and she likes to poke Livy in the eye saying "eye eye eye" over and over again. I can't imagine that would feel good, lol! She also tries to sit on her face sometimes too. We just gotta keep an eye on her.

Dd has adjusted really, really well. She is pretty sweet with her brother. The only time she ever hurt him was when she was just being a rambunctious toddler not really aware of her surroundings, jumping around like crazy. She just turned two, but she seems to understand he is small and delicate, so she is very gentle with him. She has her moments of jealousy, but she just whines, never takes it out on him. I left her alone with him in a little baby recliner thing on the floor once and when I came back in the room she had covered him with a blanket. She loves getting blankets for him.
