To think when you walk in a store and everything is right there in front of you. It is like lights, camera, action all at one time. It seems like sensory babies get overwhelmed by their surroundings.
There are some stores we walk in and he really doesn’t have a problem as long as we are quick but having to stay in a strore for more than thirty minutes is really hard on him. You would think the store of all stores for kids, Toys R Us, would be so exciting but it gives him an overwhelming sensation in a matter of a few minutes. I never know if it is the lights, sounds or just a feeling of openness. I don’t know if I will ever know.
I try to put myself in his little shoes. I want to take him places but I want to shelter his little heart too. Every day I’m amazed at the growth and changes in him since removing cow’s milk and gluten from his diet. Today was such a big accomplishment. I’m thankful for my baby’s strength and his smile gives me such encouragement. I can’t wait to see the milestones he accomplishes tomorrow.
