"These happy golden years are passing by, these happy golden years." Laura Ingalls Wilder

Growing up .. Nathan never really learned how to play in the sandbox and share or interact with other children. He often kept to himself and played alone .. or parallel played, along side, without much interaction. Something is changing .. he's now interacting with his new 'best' friend .. his little nephew, Jacob.
They are always competing now .. talking up a storm .. communicating with incomplete sentences or using the IPad app (Proloquo2Go) .. to speak .. remember manners .. share .. be kind.
Nathan's therapist has been encouraging their developing friendship by including Jacob in at least one weekly therapy session.
It's great to see their relationship develop into a friendship; one that will carry them into adulthood .. one day Jacob may even be his big uncles protector.
