Something Thkmas struggles with immensely is to sit and do a task. We haven't read a book together ever since he had the ability to move away from us.
I bought him the CBeebies magazine as it had his favourite toy. Waffle Doggy.
Inside there's stickers etc so today I've just managed to get him to sit and do about 15 minutes of matching the pictures and stickers. He blew us away because he's never been able to focus on a task for this long before. After 10 minutes he began to struggle but I didn't care. I was just in shock at what we had achieved.
We received a clinic letter a few days ago. It was the first letter we've had thst goes into detail about his sensory processing issues. It left a bittersweet feeling. We know he has these issues. We live with them daily. Now doctors are acknowledging them it sort of makes our worries feel validated. Part of his SPD is that he is seeking sensory input and he just can't stop and sit for long which is why what he's done today is so big. It made us for the full on meltdown he had earlier because he didn't get his own way. At which point we raised our voices and he then withdrew for about 30 minutes of this bizarre hyperventilating sobbing combo he does.
All is well now though. I managed 6 hours sleep after my 13hr night shift and woke up to a full English courtesy of hubby.
Today it finally felt like spring 🌼 Mum and I took Leo to @longleatofficial and spent our Saturday walking around the gardens, playing, seeing the animals and eating cake ....if that’s not a pretty perfect Saturday I don’t know what is 😌 This dress is from @missyempire and I am OBSESSED! I have been lucky enough to work with them recently and a haul is coming next week including the most beautiful pieces , how lovely is this dress 😍 #missyempire#gifted
This girl is learning so much recently! She can say 1-5, colors, the sounds animals make, and body parts (like eyes, nose, mouth). Honestly I could list a lot of things at this point that she can say! She’ll talk all day long and loves knowing what things are called. She can be pretty bossy too. She just yelled “come on Gigi!” because @jennifer_r_wright was taking too long to get out of the car. 😂
