Nice Little Moments
In ABA the other day, B. stacked one block on top of another. Just one, but that was a missing milestone that always stuck in my head, because it seemed so basic. He also picked up a bean off the table and dropped it in jar. These aren't things he's working on...his therapist helped him do them a few times, and then he did them himself. That is a big, big change.
More importantly, he seems to look at us a little more, and smile at us a little more, as the days go by.
G. is very into "hiding" these days. When I say "It's time for bed", he runs and hides behind some curtains. Then, If he manages to sneak his tiny penguins into bed with him, he bunches up a blanket and holds the penguins under it. To me, that shows some "theory of mind". He knows the penguins are there, but he thinks we won't. He's not at all subtle about the hiding, which is kind of cute.
J. has been coming out with comments like, "This is a fun morning", "This is a good breakfast!", etc. Maybe he's learning to butter me up, but hey, it works.
