New places still casue stress to R .. today I met DH and R for lunch at Mc Donalds.
School closed once again due to snow ( its a sunny day and NOT snowing except for a few sowflakes here and there )
He was sooo stimmy there and at the library - also busy stimming on the Nursery rhymes written on the wall
He was so very intentional though and really trying to talk,
Like he me to Seeeit- doooown ( sit down )
Apraxia/Dyspraxia - the horrible version that R has is a truly terrible thing. I hate it with a passion
OUr rug game usually goes like this
He will sign More and lie down on the rug ( a bed spread ) and give us enticing looks and make scute sounds till DH and I hold each end of the rug and swing him
We swing him for the duration of the song
He tries so hard to get us to sing "Wheels on the bus "( long song ) by signing for it
Yesterday he was desperately trying to remember songs so I would quietly make the hand gensture for him on the side - like "Twinkle Twinkle" and he would quickly pick up on it and immediately demand we swing and sing
