Sometimes I think Caiti's friends are playing Hide and Go Seek. Why else would Dora be in the linen closet messing up all my blankets and sheets?
I don't think Pig will see Curious George. That was a great place to hide.
Elmo and Grover easily found Big Bird because...seriously...Big Bird ALWAYS hides there.
Pig did find best friends, Flamingo and Elephant. I was just glad they hid by the diapers. That was pretty smart. Then they wouldn't have to give up their hiding places if they needed a potty break.
I think these two thought they wouldn't be noticed if they just played dead. That never works.
After all, Caiti is good at finding...and hiding her toys. She always knows where they are.
These Sesame Street guys are kind of a clique. They seem to hang out mostly with each other.
You'd think they'd let Curious George hang out too, since he's from PBS...but Dora and Baby Jaguar are nice to everyone.
I knew that more people would end up enjoying the swingset than just Garrett, Caiti's brother.
There, they look better sharing the teeter-totter. Caiti showed them who's boss. No more leaving the other friends out.
Boots is a monkey, though, so he can manage something like a teeter-totter all by himself. He has those great skills.
All that playing has made Big Bird tired. His natural instincts led him to this little tree that mommy didn't realize was growing randomly in the back yard. Too bad he didn't have time to build a nest first.

Caiti normally screams when we make her take a bath, but we found some of her long-lost bath-time friends and surprised her with them, and she had no problem with a bath after that.
Of course, the majority of her bath was spent on the outside of the tub, watching her toys swimming and throwing them in to see how big of a splash they would make or if they would float.
Anything it takes to get her in the tub and nice and clean! I'm so glad for Caiti's friends.

This is my pretty daughter, Caiti. She is one of my three children, all of whom are considered to be on the autism spectrum. It has taken me a while to get used to the idea, but I couldn't ask for sweeter kids. I talk about all of them on my other blog, abunchofroaches.blogspot.com, but I decided to dedicate an entire blog to Caiti and her "friends" that always keep her company and who I find throughout my house and in the yard every day. It always makes me smile when I'm "Finding Caiti's Friends."
Unfortunately, one of the places Caiti's friends seem to like to sit the best is the oven. I am really good at checking now since I helped her Ernie doll get a tan one day when I preheated the oven for fries.
