Owen asked Siri to say, “I want chocolate milk please and square in French”. He kept going with German, Italian, and Korean. Then he moved on with circle, triangle, and parallelogram. I have a hard time with parallelogram in English and here he is trying to say parallelogram in all these languages. I really wonder how many languages he knows or what he comprehends. Time will tell and I know it’s the shape of things to come. I have been watching Owen eat his food. There are certain foods that he seems to allow all the way in his mouth quickly and then other textures he has to push in and out. Crunchy foods, like veggie straws, seem to go in his mouth more effectively and foods like pizza or shrimp seem to be in and out and all over his face, clothes, and toes. I ordered a new spoon that has a curve to it. It’s more like a slight L shape from the handle so it is not so straight. One of the things that I’m trying to keep his hands clean is putting a wet napkin beside him on the table. The napkin is soaked so it mostly sticks to the table. I have him wipe his hands in between bites but I have to talk to him every bite about it so it’s still a process. I will keep trying different methods though and see if I can find something that helps him. I was helping him wash his hands and he reached up to bite my hair. I started singing, “you’re all right you’re OK do not bite my hair today” out of the blue. I don’t know why they all came to me but he stood listening to me and I thought maybe he will follow my words if they are in a song. He loves grabbing a fist full of my hair and running it through his mouth. But upon doing this he always tends to pull it and after all these years he is finally starting to be fine with me wearing it in a ponytail. We laughed a lot today. He made me smile and he seemed more like he was focusing on my words. Tomorrow is a brand new day. I can’t wait to see how my sweet baby O grows. Find your inspiration and make your dreams come true. Smiles to all and donut daze!
I'm Lynn Browder. Owen's Mommy. The best moments in time are when I get to see the smile on his face and that giggle come from his heart.
