My sweet baby O is feeling much better. He woke at some point but got in bed with me and went back to sleep. He had brought his tablet but gave it over to me before he even got in bed. When we got up he went to the bathroom first, sat on the couch while I got coffee, and then came to sit with me without his tablet. It was nice while it lasted. He then wanted Spookley the Square Pumpkin on Netflix. He’s been asking every day for over a week so I gave in today. I showed him on YouTube but then he said, “Spookley the Square Pumpkin OE” and when I looked it up on YouTube it wasn’t what he wanted so that’s when I did the trial for Netflix. He wanted it on there so he can change the speed and that’s what he was trying to tell me. He then listened to it slower with the different languages. When we were waiting for the bus I asked him to say, “I want cheese please in Arabic” instead of “I want chocolate milk please in Arabic.” He said the word “cheese” instead of “chocolate milk” but everything else was in Arabic. I tried it with numerous languages and foods and each time he did the other language and replaced the word with the English word he didn’t know. He came home and said he wanted to go to the park with his friends. I made the mistake of saying we could go to a different park because they could not come. He did not want to go then. I have to remember to go and then tell. He saw an avocado on the counter and he said, “that’s an avocado it’s a fruit” and he told me I had to cut it. He asked for chicken for dinner after I had asked him several times without an answer I put a pizza in. He came into the kitchen and I said I would cook him chicken but I had made pizza. He said, “no chicken today” and ate all of the pizza. He was very interactive all night, sitting with me, and laughing at everything. We sang together and read. I feel like he has been very calm the last couple of days and it makes this momma’s heart very happy. He still talks about “blue pants” but right now it feels like it is less daunting to him even though he mentions it all the time. I have been trying to get him to talk about other colors as well so hopefully, this will help. I’m thankful for today. I feel so blessed that he is wanting to do more things with me and initiating interactions first. Sing from your heart and let your soul shine. Smiles to all and donut daze!
