Woodjie is FIVE!

Yep.  This year, Woodjie learnt to say, "My name Aziah!" and to use the potty.  He can also almost write his name... and it isn't "Aziah."  I suppose Aziah is close enough that if he were missing but introduced himself around town, that he would be returned. 

I took him out to lunch today and as we were pulling into the parking lot, Woodjie told me yay he's hugwy!  I don't know how, but he remembers the place from the last (and only other!) time he has been out to eat... at least five months ago.  And it's just a generic strip mall.  I sure wouldn't be able to tell this place from any other.  How did he do that? 

And.  He remembered the fish in the Chinese restaurant.  We had to get a table by the fish so he could watch them swim while he ate.  I didn't get picky about what he ate, just this once.  I gave him as many mini donuts and french fries as he wanted.  I think we spent nearly two hours there before he came home and told everyone "I eat a donut!"

Tomorrow I will give him some Star Wars action figures and a Pokeball that will probably break in two weeks but he will love to death until then.  Happy birthday, Woodjie! :)


  1. Happy Birthday, Woodjie!!!!

    I loved reading the update - that sweet little guy. I hope their wasn't took much fall out from the doughnuts!

  2. HI Happy Elf Mom

    I always enjoy reading about your sweet Woodjie as he is a real beacon of hope for a friend of mine who has a non verbal kid. My son with autism speaks in two to tree word sentences and have not move3d beyond that despite a lot of effort on our parts but you keep oping and trying


  3. I'd like to add my well wishes also!

  4. Sounds like fun....but what is a Pokeball??

  5. I'd say Woodjie enjoyed the fish tank so much that he remembered where it was and that there was food there.
    Happy Birthday Woodjie!

  6. Isn't he doing well! I am glad he had a lovely birthday.
