My son Henry is getting stronger than ever. He now is walking up and down the stairs as supposed to climbing up them on his hands and knees, and is more stable on his feet.
We can no longer go to the park without his ball, as I will hear continously “Ball, Ball”, He will say the words Hello to people and goodbye when they leave. He still being potty trained, and this is taking its time, aswell as walking too.
He will spot different sounds of cars, hellicopters, which he calls “Butter”, how? Only he knows. He will spot a plane, he will know what a car is and when he has had enough of sitting in the pushchair he will begin to say “Walk, Walk”. He won’t always walk in the direction we want, but he is identifying now, that if he walks with us, he can stay out of the pushchair.
He not so into the swings now, or the playground, and will now walk through the park with me up to the big crossing we have, but he still won’t walk with us, from that point, as he wants to go the other way. Again no idea why.
We have a bit of a dilemma with food, as yesterday he was kicking off a lot because he wanted to get down and not eat. This time of year it is tricky as he does get very hot, and he wants to drink more than eat. So now we are gonna try no snacks, so he eats more of his meals.
It has been a tricky time as he is growing and learning new things each day, but it has been an experience and eye opener for us too.
He has had more Occupational Therapy, and again he won’t always want to sit down, unless it involves a ball or some bubbles.
I know this little moments won’t last forever but when he does do something knew my heart leaps with joy, but also a little sad, as the little baby that once was is becoming a grown boy.
Many thanks for reading,
