Ahh, back to the previous sleep supplement means the dude is sleeping through the night. It had stopped working for him, but I thought I’d give it another try. The break did him good and hopefully will help him for a while. Day two of the underwear was still not a success, with of course the underlining success story written in. He wore them, he hated them, and they sure don’t hold as well as a diaper, but we are one step further along though and he is making progress. His words seem to be going through a change as well. Some words that he used to say more clearly are getting rammed together to come out with one big word now. He’s back to listening to a lot of foreign languages and that sparks new words. However, then I have to decide if they are foreign words or words that he is not able to annunciate correctly and he gets upset if I don’t understand what he means. I think he sees all languages as one big language and not as separate. I’ve heard Spanish and French words from him, spoken perfectly. And I know he is speaking Chinese, but I can’t tell what he is saying. He will answer questions in foreign languages with English responses and he will have two tablets on with the same Mickey Mouse Clubhouse episode in two different languages. It amazes me how he will change his tone trying to sound like the character when he is speaking their lines. It’s like he is performing the scene, but learning it to use at a later date. Some days I feel like he is so interactive with me, wanting my attention for everything. Other days he feels withdrawn, but I still have to be in his view. Through all this, I know where we’ve come from though and I know how hard he has worked to get to this point. My heart rejoices in his progress, aches when he has hard days, but I know that together we will keep pushing forward. Share your story and let your light shine. Smiles to all and donut daze!
