Dean’s ABA Week

Dean has been saying a new word practically every week, even though he only says it once and is done with talking. He has said “hot dog”, “star”, “help”, and “God”. I also told him that I loved him a few days and he said “Love you” back. He has the sweetest voice imaginable for a little boy that does’t talk. He sort of sounds like a girl and it is so adorable! He had a hair cut recently and it took giving him three dumdum pops and 5 oz of water to get it done. I have been so happy with his progress lately. He is in the midst of a growth spurt, so he has been sleeping 2 to 3 hours during his day nap and eating a ton of food. He has officially discovered my room and has moved in with quite a few toys.

Dean was full of energy today. He had a hard time sitting, but did well with program. Dean was very hungry today. Some mouthing and hopping. Lots of babbling then became very quiet at the end of the session.

Dean was very vocal today. High pitch screaming. He was full of energy today. Dean did well on programs. Dean said “star” today while I was saying the shapes for the shape sorter. Dean did eat a lot today.

Dean did well this morning. Pointing looks great. Likes foam puzzle. Tried his new beads. Independently did both of my shape sorters.

6/1/18 – Ann

Dean was drooling a lot. Was using chew tube. Moved through activities quickly. Asked for trampoline and swing. Much calmer after swinging.

He has been riffling through my makeup drawers and going through my underwear basket. He is just trying to discover everything in my room. Currently, it looks like a jungle, because I am in the middle of a clothing declutter. While I have been donating clothes that belonged to Dean and I, I have been receiving clothes from a dear friend at work who just bought her first home. She gave me two huge totes full of stuff. So, I feel good about letting my bigger (and some of my smaller) clothes go as I have fun new stuff to play with that fit me much better. I have a bad habit of waiting to buy clothes until I hit my ideal size. I have 10 lbs to lose to get to my prepregnancy size of 130 lbs. I want to feel good now while losing the weight, not later. Keeps me motivated to keep on keeping on. Also, my favorite leggings fit again! WOOOHOOO!

With Love,
