Adventures With Autism and Adopting a Healthier Lifestyle

She called herself by name!

Emily loooooves to label, so we do a thing where I point at whoever is in the room (one by one) and ask “who’s that?” When we get to her, she almost always says “baby!” A couple of times, she’s said, “me!” So, today, out of nowhere, this happened…

Me: Who’s that?
Emily: Grandma!
Me: Who’s that?
Emily: Maggie! (dog)

Me: Who am I?
Emily: Mommy!

Me: Who are you?
Emily: Emily!

My jaw dropped! I praised her like mad!! When Daddy got home, we tried it again and she said Emily that time, too! 🙂
